Why Will Some Royal Wedding Guests Have to Bring Their Own Food?

While preparation for the royal wedding cake has already been underway for days, not all of the 2,000 invited guests at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding will get to taste. In fact, a group among the crowd at Windsor will find themselves with full hearts but empty stomachs unless they bring their own picnic baskets filled with sustenance.

Indeed, Page Six reports that only guests who have access to the chapel ceremony portion of the fanfare-filled big weekend will receive catered food.

“They do have a lot to cater for at the reception and then the evening event, and it is a lot of people in the grounds, but one would hope they do at least provide them with water,” etiquette expert William Hanson told Page Six.

The luckier ones have been aided by favorable conditions, according to royal chef Mark Flanagan. “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,” he said, as cited in Page Six.

Overall, the royal wedding menu is set to include food trucks, "ice cream vans," and a standing-room format.
