Prince Harry is now the proud owner of personalized candy, and consider us jealous
Of all the reasons to be jealous of royals, this might just be the sweetest. Yesterday on a trip to Northern England, Prince Harry visited the Haribo gummy factory, where he received a giant, personalized bag of the famous candies called the “Harry Mix.” Talk about the royal treatment!
Harry’s been handling a lot of royal tasks recently, a change for the redheaded former royal party boy, so this candy treat is extra deserved.
Notice his look of glee upon seeing the personalized candies. The bag had a British flag with his own name on the front of it!
Of course, Harry was as charming as ever (yes, he’s a literal Prince Charming) when visiting the Haribo factory.
And it looks like he might have even been offering his own advice to the factory workers. Or maybe he was asking about the green-to-yellow gummy bear ratio.
That photo is just begging to be captioned.
He wasn’t only in Northern England to meet with the the makers of the best chewy candies ever, though. He also went to Leeds to visit sick children at their homes.
He really does deserve his own gummy candies.
He pent some time during his trip advocating for mental health reform in Leeds, giving an impassioned speech about mental health in which he divulged his own struggles after his mother’s death, and spoke about the mental health challenges facing today’s youth.
“We need to better equip our young people with the tools they need to cope with this increasingly complex and fast-moving world we live in,” he said. “I read recently that young people check their phones at least 150 times per day — I’m sure we could all be more effective and efficient if we took a moment to process our thoughts rather than rushing from one thing to the next.”
Harry, brother William, and sister-in-law Kate, have a charity called Heads Together, which aims to de-stigmatize mental health issues. They would make Diana so proud!
As if we couldn’t love him more. Also, we will definitely buy the “Harry Mix” if/when it becomes available to the public.
