With all the huss and fuss about newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the first question on our mind is – what they will eat and drink at the reception?!
We don’t have the inside scoop. Well, no one really does. And it actually took about 4 years for the menu served at Prince Harry and Kate Middleton’s wedding to come out, and that was only after the actual menu was sold in an auction.
Here is a look at Kate and William’s Royal Menu which consisted of local products, paired with French wines.
Starter & Wine Pairing
A salad of marinated South Uist salmon, Lyme Bay crab and wild Hebridean langoustines.
Wine: Meursault, Domaine Guyot-Javillier 2009
Wine Characteristics: This is medium-bodied, rounded white wine with notes of lime blossom, fresh minerality. From the Burgundy region.
Main Course & Wine Pairing
North Highland organic lamb with Highgrove Spring vegetables, English asparagus and Jersey Royal potatoes in Windsor sauce.
Wine: L’Hospitalet de Gazin, Pomerol 2004
Wine Characteristics: This is an aged red wine from the Bordeaux region, consisting of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc. Its bouquet offers red fruits, black pepper and it is round in tannins with an elegant finish and ideal for aging.
Dessert & Wine Pairing
A trio of Berkshire honey ice cream, sherry trifle and chocolate parfait.
Wine: Laurent Perrier Rosé
Wine Characteristics: This is a champagne from the Champagne region of France. It is 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay. The bouquet is subtle on the nose and emits refined elegance. It is a dry wine with intensity and complexity of flavor.
Followed by coffee and fresh mint tea.
Now hopefully we don’t have to wait four years to hear what wines and food Harry and Meghan will be serving, but it is safe to say that the menu will be local and who knows, perhaps even the wines?
