Whole Foods is hoping you’d like to celebrate the arrival of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby with mouthfuls of “vibrant orange” cheese designed “to match Prince Harry’s signature hair.”
The grocery chain confirmed on Monday the release of its "Royal Addition Cheese" — an exclusive, limited-edition offering released in honor of Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex's newborn son.
Whole Foods previously announced the cheese would be made available following the baby's birth, but only for a limited time while quantities last. A representative for Whole Foods also urged customers to check with their local outlets to confirm the cheese will be available.
“Made of the highest quality in Southwest England, the Westminster Royal Mark red cheddar cheese combines a slight pleasant tanginess and a creamy texture, with flavor notes of burnt caramel and a slightly sweet and nutty finish, to create a world-class taste, worthy of royalty,” Whole Foods writes in a press release for the “Royal Addition” cheese last month.
“Cheddar is one of the most popular cheeses in both the U.K. and the U.S. and this rustic English cheese embodies the cultures of both the Duke and Duchess – just like the royal baby!”
The statement adds that the color of the cheese was achieved through the use of annatto, a food coloring derived from the seeds of the tropical achiote tree, to "give the cheese a unique, vibrant orange hue, to match Prince Harry’s signature hair."
“Royal Addition Cheese” will be sold at Whole Foods locations nationwide, excluding those in the Rocky Mountain region, for between $9.99 and $12.99, depending on location.
Ironically, however, a Whole Foods representative confirmed to Fox News that the cheese will be available at locations in the U.K. starting on May 9.
Us Weekly had previously reported that Whole Foods similarly celebrated the births of Prince Louis and Prince George with “Royal Addition” cheeses, though reportedly not Princess Charlotte.
