Royal Wedding guests to be served British classics by the Queen’s chef

Guests at Prince Harry and Megan Markle’s wedding reception will be served a menu of “classical British” meals.

It also looks likely that royal pastry chef Selwyn Stoby will prepare his milk chocolate truffles with a milk and kirsch centre, often served at royal parties and ceremonies.

Royal chef Mark Flanagan told media: “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.

“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.”

It has also been reported that American-style food trucks will be serving royal guests tacos, sandwiches and ice cream late into the night, after Harry convinced his brother to have them at his wedding back in 2011.

Kensington Palace announced earlier in the week that the cake was to be produced by Claire Ptak, who owns Hackney’s Violet Bakery. The Palace announced that the cake will predominantly feature “the bright flavours of spring”.
