The Royal Wedding menu has been shared by Kensington Palace.
Guests at the Lunchtime Reception hosted by the Queen will enjoy a selection of the finest dishes.
Canapés include asparagus wrapped in ham, croquette of Windsor lamb and Scottish langoustines.
The bowl food being offered to the 600 attendees includes free range chicken and Windsor pork belly.

Poached Free Range Chicken bound in a Lightly Spiced Yoghurt with Roasted Apricot

So how does this compare with Kate and William’s menu from their 2011 wedding? Well, the list of today’s food cannot be compared as Kate and William did not host a lunchtime reception for 600 guests as Meghan and Harry have done.
However, the food from their evening reception was leaked some time after the event, and like the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge focused on British classics.
For the starter, guests enjoyed “marinated South Ulst salmon, Lyme Bay crab and wild Hebridean langoustines” which was served with a “fresh herb salad”.
Organic lamb was accompanied with “Highgrove spring vegetables, English asparagus, Jersey Royal potatoes and sauce Windsor”.
Guests were then served a trio of desserts, including a “Berkshire honey ice cream, sherry trifle and chocolate parfait”.
