Both Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are passionate about food. So what dishes could you serve for a Royal Wedding menu to celebrate the forthcoming nuptials?



Turkey meatloaf and fries




This is a dish close to Meghan's heart, as she has stated it is what her mother made for her growing up – and is something of a comfort dish. A definite option to get on any authentic royal wedding menu.

Meghan has also revealed her dedication to the French fry, although it seems unlikely that this would make it onto the Queen's plate at the wedding reception. Maybe one for the afterparty.


Acai bowls




A number of food blogs and magazine interviews have seen Meghan rave about Acai bowls. This is a simple dish that you could offer for breakfast on the morning of the ceremony.

The main components of the dish are frozen and mashed açaí palm fruit, served as a smoothie in a bowl or glass, and topped with granola and banana, and mixed with other fruits and guaraná syrup.

Meghan's favourite is with bananas, berries, almond milk, coconut flakes, manuka honey, and bee pollen.


Fish Tacos




As a native of California, it is unsurprising that Meghan is a massive fan of fish tacos, a staple of the seaside, surfer culture along the West Coast.

Her recipe includes grilling peppers and onions, flaky white fish, seasoned with salt, pepper and lime, stuffed into a tortilla.




Bacon with peanut butter and jam muffins




Another dish that can be served on the morning of the wedding. Harry is not only a bacon fan, he likes it done in a very specific way that Meghan would surely approve of, after a visit to Walt Disney World in America as a child.

According to former royal chef Darren McGrady's book, The Royal Chef at Home, a young Harry demanded the bacon was grilled, dried with paper towels, then cooked in the microwave to get a 'super crisp' effect. Darren served this with either eggs and toast or peanut butter and jam muffins to the young princes.


Chicken masala pizza




Although Prince Harry now claims to no longer chow down on pizza, he was once an avid fan of the dish.

He is also a big fan of curries, so Darren decided to mix the two and produce chicken masala pizza for the young prince.


Roast chicken




The now infamous 'engagement chicken' is a must for any celebration weekend of the royal wedding. The story goes that Harry got down on one knee during the preparation of a roast chicken meal at his former batch pad and soon to be marital home, Nottingham Cottage in Kensington Palace.

Harry is clearly a chicken fan having also been spotted grabbing a 'cheeky Nandos' at midnight in Fulham after England qualified for the World Cup in 2013 - so any variant on chicken is a good nod to the future Duke.
