The time has finally come to gather together to watch the British Prince Harry marry the American girl of our dreams, Meghan Markle. We. Can’t. Wait.
Leading up to the big day tomorrow, much news coverage has been focused on whether Meghan’s dad would be able to make the ceremony, and unfortunately due to recent heart surgery, he will not. Instead, we find out today that Meghan will be walked down the aisle by none other than Harry’s dad, Prince Charles:

The other topics of news surrounding the wedding have been about The Dress and of course also the food. We’re all waiting with bated breath to see what Meghan will wear, BUT we do already have some advance notice on what kind of food will be served – which is awesome news for all those watch parties. Tomorrow’s wedding festivities will start quite early for Americans, beginning at 1am in Hawaii, 4am on the west coast, and 7am on the east. So to start the day off right, we suggest having some relevant refreshments on hand.
First, let’s take a look at the Royal Wedding cake. We know already that Harry and Meghan have chosen a nontraditional but seasonal flavor – lemon and elderflower. Here’s the newest sneak-peek:

To copy these flavors, head to Trader Joe’s to pick up some just-released Lemon Elderflower Soda.
According to the official web site of the British Royal Family, “The menu which will be served on Prince Harry and Ms. Markle’s wedding day, has been led by the freshest produce available.” At their standing-only reception, guests will be served both canapés and small meals in bowls – a decision apparently made based on the attendance of Harry’s army pals who are hearty eaters. For something similar, simple and fresh at home, try a canapé of asparagus and cheese on toast squares.
Or, for something even simpler, pick up some frozen petite quiche from your grocery store. We won’t judge.
Happy Royal Wedding Viewing Party Eve, y’all – now let’s watch an American become a real-life princess!
