If you thought the royal wedding meal was going to be a fancy linen tablecloth affair, please know that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a dramatically different idea for how they want guests to celebrate. Instead of a fussy sit-down dinner, guests at the reception will enjoy a more casual setup of food in portable mini-bowls meant to be eaten while standing and mingling.
The couple were very involved in every part of drawing up their menu and taste testing the recipes. "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 The Telegraph. He wouldn't say what dishes made the final cut, but he did reveal that everything is classic and there's nothing experimental. He also teased that produce such as tomatoes, peas, and asparagus appear in the savory offerings, while chocolate truffles make a cameo at dessert.
There will also be fun food festivities after dark. According to The Express, the couple has planned a "secret disco" to close out the late night portion of the event that will include food trucks and "ice cream vans," which Prince Harry reportedly convinced his brother Prince William to have at his 2011 wedding to Kate Middleton.
