As the wedding preparations are on its go, the rumours are the couple has already hired a caterer. Well, Meghan certainly doesn’t want anything to go wrong.
Harry and Meghan’s wedding is still few weeks away, but we’re already obsessing over all the royal details.
Here’s what we know so far about the menu that will be served at their reception.
On January 2, some reports suggested that Harry and Meghan had hired catering firm, Table Talk for their big day. While the news is unconfirmed, Kensington Palace declined to comment.
Not only did the London-based company cater William and Kate Middleton’s wedding reception, but they also worked Pippa Middleton’s wedding in May of 2017.

It’s a royal tradition for weddings to take place earlier in the day. In the case of Prince William and Kate’s wedding, the ceremony was then followed by a wedding breakfast, a luncheon held by Queen Elizabeth.
Then later, a more intimate evening reception was held, featuring a sit-down dinner. Guests at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding will be treated to a three-course menu, followed by a trio of desserts.
The drinks on the house?
Ms Markle used to run a blog called ‘The Tig’, which is named after the full-bodied Tuscan red Tignanello. Given this, it’s fair to assume wine will be in no short supply at her wedding.
The big fruit cake?
On March 20, Kensington Palace put to rest all those banana cake rumours. How? Well, they confirmed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will serve a lemon elderflower cake at their reception.
In order to respect the bride’s American heritage, the cake will be made by Claire Ptak. He is a pastry chef who was raised in California but now owns London-based bakery, ‘Violet Cakes’.
