We have so many questions surrounding the May 19 wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Most pressingly, of course, we must know what flavor the lovebirds' cake will be. Will they seriously settle for a fruitcake?
We're not the only ones wondering what will be served at the blessed event, and rumors are already flying about what the lucky guests will eat. First thing's first, though: if you're picturing royal canapes circulating at cocktail hour, know that most royal weddings take place in the early part of the day. (So, probably too early for champagne and beggar's purses.)
Most likely, the big day will include a morning service followed by a wedding breakfast. Then, the Queen is expected to host a luncheon; later on, an intimate evening reception will include a sit-down dinner.
As for who will handle the task of cooking up all that fare, some speculate that the royal couple has tapped catering firm Table Talk. The rumor is not confirmed (Kensington Palace is staying mum on this one!) But, the firm catered Kate Middleton and Prince William's reception back in 2011, and also fed guests at Pippa Middleton's 2017 nuptials. So, it's not the wildest guess.
As we know, Markle is an adventurous eater — and she loves a good glass of wine. So, it's a good bet that rubber chicken and cheap Chardonnay will not stand with the future duchess. And, while we can't say exactly what the couple will serve their loved ones, there's a certain scuttlebutt about a banana cake.
Mmm. Banana cake. Now we're really hoping for an invite! Perhaps the newlyweds will also serve some rare meat, in honor of the groom's brother? Only time will tell.
But no matter what they select, chances are the couple's budget will be on the hearty side: The royal family is picking up the catering tab.
