The royal box set mystery!

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I am hoping someone can help me solve a mystery please ;-)

 

I bought the royal box set back in 1990 I think, but not only does it have the usual stuff in it, it also has a piece of rubber and some perfumed frilly knickers lol, which I hasten to say I did not add myself to the box set.

 

It was all sealed and I have a vague memory it was limited in some way when I got it but I can find no mention anywhere of the set including these odd extra bits.

 

Can anyone shed any light please on this edition ?

 

Thanks in advance

Bob

Hi again, I have definitely not signed up here as a bot or troll. Just thought that I could help poster Ukzen with finding out if the fan community is familiar with this Royal Box Edition, including the unusual and less familiar content. The question of Ukzen recently came up on the discogs forum. Then after browsing I had noticed that a same question was asked here on this forum. Since it was questioned if that Royal Box Edition with extra content really existed, I thought to try posting here about the discogs topic where a photo of the edition was posted.

Is there anyway to get a proper photo of each item? The resolution of that photo is rather poor.

That is my photo the quality was because this site requires a small file size for upload.

Here is a link to a better copy https://ibb.co/ZcnySYy

I know how it looks but i assure you i am not a bot or a troll and i did not put those things in there and they were in there prior to the box set being sealed.

Sure. But the image name has another name inside with a Jpg. That's because it has been renamed after dragging the photo from another place online. What it makes the whole thing quite suspicious. I see you just upload it from there. It will be interesting to be able to read the text on the letter and sachet.

Those are components that have nothing to do with the box anyway.

It's pretty easy to seal/wrap something back.

I`ll take another photo for you , as for sealing it , it isn`t easy as there was a sticker on the front detailing the contents , the official contents that is , it was very difficult to remove from the cellophane.This sticker is now stuck to the front of the box where i put it .

Here you are

I am as confused as anybody about this , i bought it when it came out had it for a few years then it got packed away when i got married and had kids , now my collection is coming down from the loft and i thought i would see if anyone else had heard of it , that is all ! , not trying to make claims or anything .

Interesting. I wonder if it was some kinda of promotional/ press material that got misplaced or never happened. The letter sounds like a Madonna thing to do. I don't get the rubber tube thou
