When approaching jelly beans, we can’t say that we take much time to inspect them before seeing how many we can fit in our mouths at once. But, luckily, Wesley Hosie — a 24-year-old British accountant-in-training (aka “bean counter”) — gave the jelly beans his girlfriend brought home a good look-see before shoving a handful in his mouth.
That’s when, Hosie claims, he was struck by one bean’s resemblance to Prince William’s bride-to-be, Kate Middleton.
“As Jessica opened the jar, I saw her immediately,” Hosie tells the Telegraph. “She was literally lying there staring back at me.”
Now Hosie hopes to profit from his find and plans to auction the royal-resembling bean (it’s mango flavored, by the way) for at least $800.
“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.”
