Separated at Birth or in a Candy Jar?

Kate Middleton has appeared in the form of a jellybean.

An English couple who were tucking into a jar of candy from The Jelly Bean Factory have discovered a yellow and red jellybean which they claim looks exactly like Prince William's bride-to-be.

The sighting marks a new highlight in the world of the weird and wonderful, where there have been countless claims of the face of Jesus Christ appearing on everything from crisps to chocolate bars to house walls.

More recently, an abandoned cat was found looking remarkably similar to Harry Potter villain Lord Voldemort thanks to his missing ears.

“She was literally lying there staring back at me,” Wesley Hosie told the Daily Telegraph, about the Kate Middleton lookalike jellybean.

Hosie said he was struck by the red pattern on the surface of the bean, replicating the future princess’s strong facial features, long hair and smile.

Richard Cullen, joint managing director for The Jelly Bean Factory, told the Daily Telegraph: "This sounds truly incredible… 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."

The couple have saved the bean and hope to sell it on eBay for £500 ($816).

But if that's a little pricey to pay for a jelly bean, then why not settle for this painting instead, of Prince William staring intently at a jelly bean on the top of Kate Middleton's head, on sale for only $3.25.
