The arrival of HRH Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge has been celebrated by royal fans around the world. Shortly after the little girl's birth on 2 May, some of London's most famous monuments were flooded with pink lights – and similar tributes were later paid at Belfast County Hall and Niagara Falls. Now Italian restaurant chain Zizzi have recreated the moment when Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, presented their new baby on the steps of the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington using pizza.

Zizzi have recreated the moment Princess Charlotte left hospital using a pizza
Zizzi has worked with a celebrity food artist to create a bespoke royal pizza portrait acknowledging the historic occasion of Charlotte's birth.
"It isn't everyday a royal baby is born," said Zizzi's marketing director Jo Fawcett. "And that is why here at Zizzi we wanted to capture this historic moment in a unique way to congratulate the royal family."

The detailed pizza features a pepper and cheese-based recreation of the yellow and cream silk dress that Kate chose to wear to present her daughter for the first time. It's no surprise that the Duchess called on Jenny Packham, the designer behind the blue and white polka dot dress she wore for Prince George's debut at the Lindo Wing, to create the unique outfit for her appearance on Saturday.
This is not the first time that a foodie tribute has been paid to William, Kate and their children. In June 2014 Toblerone created a unique chocolate portrait of Prince William and Prince George to honour the Duke's first Father's Day.

The picture, which was a milk, white and dark chocolate image of William and George from their tour of New Zealand and Australia, was the handiwork of food artist Michelle Wibow.
Michelle used 1,500 bars of the iconic triangle shaped chocolate bar, totalling over 16,000 individual pieces, to create the 12ft x 8ft picture.
