Congratulations Harry and Meghan!
The news we have all been waiting for is finally here: HRH Prince Harry and his beloved Meghan Markle have finally let the world know that they are engaged!
Wondering what their wedding day will hold, the spotlight will firmly be upon those in the industry that know it all so well. Keeping an eye on the Kensington Palace gates along with many other things, it will be of the utmost importance to every passionate wedding planner to watch Harry and Meghan’s journey to the aisle. With various questions buzzing around in our heads, it is at this stage we wonder just what they will decide upon during the planning stages.
Before the checklist is prepared, the seamstress is hired and ceremonial music is chosen, it’s about time the couple celebrate and what better way than to throw an engagement party, setting the tone of what’s to come?
As a London caterer, we are used to various styles of events, all ranging in purpose and numbers. Trying to imagine what Harry and his guests would enjoy, along with the attendance of The Queen and possibly little George, the food needs to appeal to all. Here is a menu that we think each member of the Royal Family would appreciate…..
