Prince Harry's royal duties keep him pretty busy, but that didn't stop him from visiting a Haribo factory on Friday. Staff at the factory looked overjoyed to have the prince in their midst, especially when he donned a white lab coat and hat to handle the candy.

Harry visited the new factory in Castleford to meet with staff, as part of his tour of West Yorkshire in the north of England.

And to thank him for visiting, Prince Harry was presented with a "Harry Mix" box, containing bags of candy shaped like the prince. While these aren't currently available to the general public, it feels as though there could be a major market for them.

When asked why he created the "Harry Mix", Managing Director of the Haribo factory, Herwig Vennekens, told The Telegraph, "It's such a unique thing we could do to thank him for coming and spending time with employees. It was really worth the effort. He brought so many smiles to the faces of the staff."
