Traditional wedding feast expected at Royal Wedding

Prince William and Kate Middleton are likely to serve traditional British food, to their guests at their wedding reception.

Former royal chef Darren McGrady previously cooked for the prince when he lived at Kensington Palace with his mother Princess Diana. He told Female First that he thinks the feast served to guests at the wedding reception venue, will be much simpler than the meals served at previous royal weddings.

According to Darren, the guests are likely to have a number of traditional English meals. He expects that after the 11am ceremony at Westminster Abbey, William and Kate will have a wedding breakfast champagne, canapés and h’ors d’oeuvres including smoked salmon, pate and mini sausage rolls which he claimed were “always popular at the Palace- one of the first to go.”

Talking to People magazine he added: “The Royal family will not want to be seen as going backwards and actually having a big, seven-course meal with a soup course and a fish course. They will want to make it more modern. They like to showcase British food, so there might be Gaelic steaks with braised rice.”

Darren added that he “wouldn’t be surprised if cottage pie is somewhere on the menu,” the dish of minced beef with mashed potato, gravy and cheese is one of Prince William’s favourite dishes.
