Yep, we’ve got the low down on what the lucky guests attending the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be eating following the service at St. George’s Chapel on May 19.
According to People, the couple’s nearest and dearest (and a few hundred extra ring ins) will be served canapes and bowls of bites (eaten standing up) prepared with seasonal produce sourced predominantly from Queen Elizabeth’s royal estates.
Apparently the pair insisted on a few stipulations.
“We know the couple wanted us to make sure we used all of the local seasonal produce as much as possible throughout their menu, and this recent good weather is really helping us to achieve that,” Royal chef Mark Flanagan told reporters. “They’ve been involved in every detail.”
And don't expect any Heston Blumenthal-style cuisine.
“There’s no experimentation on Saturday whatsoever, tried and tested and predominantly classics," he added.
Sadly, Flanagan didn't give any extra details but it's speculated that British veg like asparagus, spinach, elderflower and peas will make an appearance.
Kensington Palace has already dished on the official wedding cake, revealing that the pair have chosen pastry chef Claire Ptak, owner of the London-based bakery Violet Cakes, to be in charge of arguably the most important element of the entire day.
"Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have asked Claire to create a lemon elderflower cake that will incorporate the bright flavours of spring. It will be covered with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers."
“Claire Ptak, who was raised in California, focuses on using seasonal and organic ingredients in her cakes. Ms. Markle previously interviewed Chef Ptak for her former lifestyle website The Tig.”
The wedding cake will also have a healthy twist, featuring organic, sustainable and seasonal ingredients.
