Prince Harry presented with his own 'Harry Mix' sweets

Prince Harry has been presented with his own sweet treat on a tour of the new £92 million Haribo factory - a box of special "Harry Mix".

Accepting the gift, which were made especially for Friday's visit and will not be sold to the public, he told staff: "You've got too much time on your hands."

When told there were more of the sweets he could share with other members of the Royal Family, he said: "I'm sure I'll never hear the end of it."

The Prince, who said he ate Haribo Gold Bears as a child, also spoke to groups of staff in the canteen at the Castleford factory and signed a visitors' book before being presented with a letter thanking him for his work raising awareness of mental health issues.

The company, which employs more than 730 people across its sites in Castleford and Pontefract and can produce 48,000 tonnes of confectionery each year, has said it will make a donation to a charity of Harry's choice.
