A right Royal knees-up
For anyone who’s a fan of the royals, there’s only one thing on the agenda this month! The Royal Wedding of course. The big day will take place a week on Saturday at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, with around 600 guests set to attend the ceremony.
Windsor Castle has played host to many royal weddings in the past – including the blessing of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles and the marriage of Prince Edward and Sophie Rhys-Jones. The royals have been trendsetters in many other areas too – Queen Victoria sparked the tradition of the white wedding dress, as well as wedding cake figurines!
If you’re thinking ahead to the 19th, a Royal Wedding party may be on the cards! You’re in the right place – we’ve picked out our favourite recipes to help you throw a thoroughly regal event.
