A German sweets company has apologised for its 'racist' cartoon of Meghan Markle at the royal wedding.

Super Dickmann has faced a backlash for posting a photo of a chocolate covered marshmallow wearing a tiara and wedding dress, depicting The Duchess of Sussex.

People have labelled the image "racist" and "pathetic", after it was posted on Saturday, the same day as the wedding, The Sun reports.

The German words, "Ein Schaum in Weiss" or "A Foam in White" appears on the image with the caption "What are you looking at... Don't you too by any chance want to be Meghan today?"

The company has since apologised for the image saying "Super Dickmann's world is colourful and diverse and far from racist thoughts".
