Are you planning a Royal Wedding menu for your pub? Well some of the food for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has been announced - and sees the couple living up to their credentials as trend-setting Millennials.

According to reports, the couple plan to have food trucks for the after-dinner party, as well as an ice-cream van offering an alternative dessert.

Indeed, Meghan's American foodie heritage may also be on show, with rumours of grilled cheese, tacos, and other US-style mini bites to be served late at night.

Harry also plans to have two of his favourite snacks as well – bacon and sausage sandwiches – which were on offer at Prince William's wedding to Kate Middleton, allegedly due to being convinced by the younger Prince. It now looks as though the same late-night snack will be on offer at his own wedding.

Both of these snacks could go down well on Saturday night in your pub.

Let them eat cake

In firmer, more official news, Kensington Palace took to social media for an announcement about the royal wedding cake, due to be produced by pastry chef, Claire Ptak, who owns the Violet Bakery in Hackney.

The cake will feature what the Palace described as 'the bright flavours of spring' and will be covered in buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers.

An example of one or two of Violet's cakes are below:

Maybe your pub could offer muffins or desserts with fresh flowers? A Meghan dessert to marvel at, perhaps.

Seasonal produce

Although the wedding reception menu remains top secret, Sky News did get access to the Royal Chef, who gave some insight into what the Royals and 600 guests will be chowing down on following the nuptials.

Royal chef Mark Flanagan, who will be leading a team of 30 chefs for the event, said that the couple had been very 'hands on' with the menu.

He said: "They wanted us to use local produce, we've used all of the local seasonal produce as much as possible throughout their menu. The recent good weather has really helped us to achieve that."

Currently in season vegetables such as asparagus, peas, and tomatoes, look set to feature in a range of classical British dishes, according to Mark's comments.

Do you have grilled asparagus on your menu? Maybe it's time to give it a Harry and Meghan twist.

The food will all be local sourced, using the Windsor estate and local firms too.

Mark said: "We've really just been trying to let the ingredients stand proud within the dishes. There's no experimentation on Saturday whatsoever, tried and tested - and predominantly classics."

Another dish mentioned, being prepared by Royal pastry chef, Selwyn Stoby, was milk chocolate truffles with a milk and kirsch centre – often served as parties and receptions, and potentially set to feature at the Royal wedding.
