It feels like we've been waiting years for the royal wedding to happen, and fortunately we only have to be patient a few more days before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle finally tie the knot on May 19. Learning more about what's going to happen at the royal wedding has become something of a guilty pleasure, especially since the majority of us weren't invited to the actual celebration. The next best thing is hearing about what's going to happen behind closed doors, and luckily for us, there's plenty of information out there. We even know what kind of food is going to be at the royal wedding reception.
That's pretty important — after all, one of the best things about going to a wedding is eating a lot of delicious and free food. And since this is literally a royal reception, one would hope that the spread would be out of this world. It sounds like it's going to be, and it also seems like there's going to be a fairly unique menu, as far as royal weddings go. According to sources, Harry and Markle have decided to forgo some traditional dishes for trendier options.
They certainly need to have a lot of options. May 19's royal wedding ceremony is going to be followed by two receptions. The first is a lunch in the afternoon, with about 600 guests. The second is in the evening, and will be more intimate, as well as less traditional. Then, of course, there's the royal after party to consider. That's a lot of food! Overall, everything is expected to be a little more casual and hip compared to the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton — and I can't say I'm surprised. Check out some of the food that will reportedly be at the royal wedding receptions, and prepare to feel hungry:
