Christmas is approaching and Prince Harry has been served the ultimate royal snub by his father Prince Charles.

Each year, the royal family releases Christmas teddy bears that are named after members of The Firm.

However, Harry is nowhere to be found on the website this year.

It follows after an intense year for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex who announced their intention to resign as senior royal members at the beginning of the year.

The couple are now perched in their California mansion with their son, Archie, as they pursue their own career paths.

The teddy bears are sold through the Highgrove Gardens store along with other products.

All funds raised going towards the Prince of Wales Charitable Fund.

The 'William' and 'Louis' teddy bears are selling for £125 (AUD$227) and are made of alpaca hair and feature a gold-embroidered Highgrove emblem on its paw.

The 'William' bear is described as: “Handmade by Merrythought, the last remaining British teddy bear manufacturer, William is a classically designed teddy bear crafted from the highest-quality pale gold alpaca hair.

“Featuring a gold embroidered Highgrove emblem on his sandy-beige silk paw, he has honeyed coloured eyes, a beautifully simple smile and is wonderfully soft and cuddly.

“His look is complete with a large green and gold satin bow – a perfect accessory for a grand looking bear.

“An ideal companion for anyone who loves bears, William arrives in a presentation box with a certificate of authenticity.

“William Bear is an exquisite piece of British heritage and a loyal companion to both adults and children alike.”

Only 200 William bears have been made and each comes in an easy-to-wrap presentation box.

In 2019, a limited edition 'Harry' bear made from mohair from goats was withdrawn from sale after concerns were raised about animal cruelty.

The gift shop told The Mirror: “We will no longer be selling products manufactured using mohair once current stocks have sold out.”

Since then though, a more ethical version of the 'Harry' bear has not been produced.

All items relating to Prince Andrew have been entirely pulled from the gift shop.

Prince Andrew has stepped down from royal duties after his friendship with deceased convicted child sex offender Jeffrey Epstein was made public.

Prince Harry memorabilia is still on sale at Balmoral.
