What better way to bring a little bit of royalty to your guests then to serve them some of the favorite foods of the royal family? You’ll want to start out with what the Queen drinks and eats every day, tea, Jammie Dodgers, and cucumber sandwiches. Her preferred type of tea is Darjeeling Tea which can be found in most grocery stores. It is the most expensive and exotically flavored tea that is grown in the Darjeeling District of Bengal, India. However, if you’re not able to find this type of tea anywhere near you, you can buy it here.
Jammie Dodgers are a type of biscuit with jam in the middle. They are very popular in England, and Burton’s Jammie Dodgers, which are only found in the U.K., can be bought online. But if you want to try and create this English snack yourself, here is a great recipe. Now on to the main courses.
Some of Prince William’s favorite foods are said to be pizza, pasta, poached eggs, and venison. Since the royal wedding will be on very early in the morning over here, why not try to serve these things up breakfast style. Here is a recipe for Breakfast Pizza that is sure to please all different tastes. Poached eggs while delicious are a little bit difficult to make, so be sure to practice on this one before April 29th! Fruit salad would be another delicious easy recipe to add to your royal wedding menu.

Prince William’s is a Banana Flan that he used to eat with his mother, Princess Diana and his brother Prince Harry at Kensington Palace.

The chef there, Rody Warot says that Kate always enjoys it every time that she comes in. He shares the recipe for this delicious dessert here.
And to toast the couple on their big day, what better way to do it with the royal wedding cocktail that Colin Cowie has created just for this special occasion. The Royal CV Cocktail consists of Chambord Flavor Vodka, simple syrup, cucumber, raspberries, and lemon juice, and the recipe is very easy to make.
For a parting favor for your guests, why not use one of Prince William’s favorite foods; chocolate, as the inspiration. You can use these cute princess crown chocolate molds to make chocolate lollipops for your guests to leave with.
