    Wesley Hosie, 25, found the yellow and red sweet by chance as he and his girlfriend tucked into a 700g jar from The Jelly Bean Factory.
    The trainee accountant said the moment he opened the pot, he was struck by the red pattern on its surface, illustrating Prince William's bride-to-be's strong facial features, long hair and smile.
    Mr Hosie and girlfriend Jessica White, 24, from Taunton, Somerset, kept the mango-flavoured bean and now plan to sell it on eBay for £500.
    Mr Hosie said: "As Jessica opened the jar, I saw her immediately. She was literally lying there staring back at me.
    "Given that the royal wedding is only a few weeks away, we hope to make a few pounds out of it by selling it on the internet to a collector."
    Richard Cullen, Joint Managing Director for The Jelly Bean Factory in Dublin, who is yet to see the bean said: "This sounds truly incredible, I would have to see the bean myself to believe it.
    "All of our beans are handmade and this looks like one of our red speckled Mango beans, the natural speckles are unique to each and every jelly bean due to the handmade process."


    Okay, I'm seriously starting to worry about the future of my country... meh, at least it makes a change from finding Jesus on your toast.

    I'm sure the Royal Family will keep close tabs on the purchaser. They should be worried.

    I wonder if the jelly-bean could get a degree in 'Art History' too.

    Noticing it? Not a huge deal, tbh, I can see where they're coming from....


    Buying it? Ok, you've got issues.

    Stupid - and I bet they won't even eat the Jelly bean ever, it just sort of looks like a generic woman in her mid 20s'
