  • Cadbury World chocolatiers have announced that it has made a hand-crafted teddy bear made of chocolate equivalent to 622 milk chocolate bars to commemorate the royal birth
  • Previously Cadbury had celebrated the royal births of Prince George, Louis and Princess Charlotte by creating a chocolate cot, pram and rocking horse respectively.

While the new royal baby of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor may be seventh in the line of succession, he has already received a personalised sweet treat, many times larger and heavier than him, from the British Chocolate giant - Cadbury.

Cadbury World chocolatiers have announced on Wednesday that it has made a hand-crafted teddy bear made of chocolate equivalent to 622 milk chocolate bars, weighing 28 kilos, standing tall at 1.5 feet with button eyes, holding a milk- chocolate heart to commemorate the birth of Harry and Meghan's part American-part British baby.

The bakers - Sian Patterson and Bernie Andrews have worked around the clock for two days to create the giant brown teddy bear, using a football mould for his body and head, and piped chocolate on top of it to give the effect of fur, according to international media reports.

Previously Cadbury had celebrated the royal births of Prince George by creating a chocolate cot, for Princess Charlotte's birth they had designed a chocolate pram and for Prince Louis - a chocolate rocking horse.

Here's what Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have named their 'royal baby'

 Earlier on Wednesday, Meghan and Prince Harry have shown their new son to the public. he child, who was born on Monday weighing 3.3 kg, appeared in front of cameras in his father's arms, wrapped in a white blanket and wearing a white knitted hat. And now, hours after the 'royal baby's' appearance, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had announced their newborn son's name - Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The 37-year-old Duchess of Sussex, who was an American actress known as Meghan Markle before she joined the British royal family, and Harry still haven't disclosed the planned location of the birth. But they ruled out the London hospital where the prince, older brother William and William's three children with Kate, Duchess of Cambridge were born.
