Windsor Castle Took Delivery of a Boatload of Pizzas During the Royal Wedding
Something substantial was required to soak up all that champagne in honor of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
We already told you that some guests at the royal wedding would be required to bring their own food if they wanted to eat. And now it appears that, instead of bringing pre-packed picnic baskets to the Windsor Castle grounds on May 19, some chose an alternate option that was even more... convenient.
Indeed, someone (or someones) ordered a bunch of pizzas to Windsor Castle for a delivery during the big day to fete Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Events of the day included two receptions — the first, a luncheon hosted by the Queen, the second, an intimate evening one hosted by Prince Charles.
The wedding luncheon was served canape-style, with options like smoked salmon with citrus crème fraiche, grilled English asparagus wrapped in Cumbrian ham, and garden pea panna cotta with quail eggs and lemon verbena.
Nevertheless, a video captured by shocked locals showed two Pizza Express Workers dragging a box full of trays through the crowded streets and into the castle gates around 7 p.m., just before the second reception was to begin and after the first reception.
The Pizza Express women are seen stopping to talk with security, and then making the delivery.
Hey, when you're hungry, you're hungry. And to get through a day that monumentally historic — with that much champagne — required some serious fuel.
