The Royal Kitchens at Windsor Castle are set to be busier than ever on Saturday and Royal Chef Mark Flanagan has now given the public a sneak peek inside his work space ahead of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big day.
Kensington Palace took to social media on Monday to confirm that the chefs producing the food for the much-talked about ceremony had been hard at work, sharing an array of photos online.
Harry and Markle’s wedding reception guests will be treated to a number of delicacies while on the castle grounds after the ceremony and Flanagan insisted they won’t be disappointed.
The Head Chef of The Royal Household told the Palace’s official website: “All the staff are delighted to be involved on the day. We’ve even had old staff contacting us if we need some extra support.”
Unsurprisingly, the dishes will be made using the freshest produce available.
Flanagan continued, “Luckily the seasons have just fallen perfectly and that’s become the main focus in the decision making of the menus. The couple have been very involved in every detail of it.”
Harry and his wife-to-be attended several tasting trials in the Castle’s kitchen back in March, with them sampling each of the dishes which had been made from scratch.
Chef Selwyn Stoby added, “You approach every Royal event with the same care and attention to detail. But you don’t get many opportunities to do a Royal Wedding in your lifetime, so this is very special.”
The latest royal wedding news comes after it was revealed that Harry and Markle would return to their royal duties just three days after their special day.
The pair will be attending the Prince of Wales’ 70th Birthday Patronage Celebration in the gardens of Buckingham Palace on May 22, it’s been confirmed.
