Let’s also take a look at a few of the past royal wedding menu items!

Prince William & Kate’s wedding menu in 2011 included crab and langoustines, a fresh herb salad, marinated salmon, organic lamb with spring vegetables, English asparagus, potatoes and Windsor sauce. Dessert was honey ice cream, a sherry trifle, and a chocolate parfait.

In 1999, Prince Edward & Sophie Rhys-Jones had a self-service buffet of smoked haddock in pastry, beef stroganoff, and raspberries in cream. They also broke tradition with their wedding cake as layers of devil’s food cake rather than a traditional tiered fruitcake.







In 1986, Prince Andrew and Sarah’s wedding menu featured Eggs Drumkilbo, the late Queen Mother’s favorite dish, lamb with mint sauce, potatoes, strawberries with clotted cream and a six-tiered wedding cake completed their meal.





Prince Charles & Diana’s wedding menu in 1981 included traditional strawberries with cream, brill in lobster sauce, and chicken breasts stuffed with lamb mousse. They served 27 cakes, including a five-foot tall fruitcake with white icing.





We can’t wait to see what Prince Harry and Meghan have on their menu Saturday!
