Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Have Picked Out Their Wedding Cake - Pop Culture
From The Kitchn - December 7, 2017

Ever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement, the internet has been swirling with rumored details of the next royal wedding. In the last week alone, we have seen wild-card guesses at Meghan's dress design and even speculation as to the type of calligraphy on their invitations.

So far, the only confirmed detail released by Kensington Palace is that they will be wed in May 2018 at St. George's Chapel. But there are plenty of little hints about what the couple is likely planning for their big dayyou just have to look in the right places. After some serious sleuthing, we have uncovered many more important specifics, including plans for the couple's cake! Here's everything you need to know about the highly anticipated nuptials.

The entire event will be as low-key as royals can be.

For starters, Harry and Meghan's big day will be completely different from William and Kate's grand affair in 2011. In addition to exchanging vows at a much smaller church, the duo intends to keep the entire wedding much more understated. This means no procession through London, no balcony kiss at Buckingham Palace, and much fewer guests (St. George's seats 800 people, while Westminster can host up to 2,000).

The couple will cut into a banana cake.

After saying "I do" and kicking off the royal reception, Harry and Meghan will be sharing banana-flavored cake with their guests. This is pretty divergent from the boozy fruitcakes royal chefs typically whip up for high-profile ceremonies, but the fruit seems to hold a special significance to the couple. According to the Telegraph, Prince Harry reportedly loves "anything with banana" and Meghan may have alluded to this when she shared a photo of two bananas cuddling on Instagram last year.

Meghan's dress will be fuss-free.

You can watch the wedding on TV.
