What's on the menu for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's big day?

The full menu has not been confirmed yet but the couple have dropped interesting hints about what sort of food their guests will devour at Windsor Castle.

Sweet and savoury canapes that can be eaten in two bites are likely to be served before the main meal.

A bonanza of vegetables locally sourced in the Home Counties will be central to the dishes served. It's thought these will include artichokes, tomatoes, broad beans, peas and asparagus.

Royal chef Mark Flanagan, who is leading the team who on Saturday, said: "The day of the wedding has fallen very kindly for us. All the British vegetables are just coming into season… and that's been a point of focus for us."

Dishes are believed to be served in bowls, which guests are encouraged to eat while standing.

The caterer Table Talk is the same firm which wowed guests at Kate Middleton and Prince William's wedding reception in 2011.

It has emerged that the royal couple will have a lemon elderflower cake made by pastry chef Claire Ptak, owner of the London-based Violet Bakery.

It'll apparently all be washed down with red wine.

Meghan, 36, used to run a lifestyle blog she called The Tig, named after an Italian red wine called Tignanello.
