Chocolatiers at Cadbury World created a chocolate rocking horse for the new baby, after previously making a chocolate pram for Princess Charlotte and a chocolate cot with toys for Prince George.

It weighs around 30kg – the equivalent of 667 standard bars of Cadbury Dairy Milk – and was made by Dawn Jenks and Doona Oluban over two days.
