While some contestants on Food Network Star admit to being star-struck upon meeting Giada De Laurentiis for the first time, the popular Food Network personality is about to have her own star-stricken experience. On July 9, Giada will cook for Prince William and his new bride, Dutchess Kate at  The Foundation Polo Challenge in California, along with 2,500 other guests for this charity event.

According to her interview on The Today Show, Giada signed up to cater the event without knowing that the royal couple would be there. "At first I was crazy nervous, but now I am purely excited," shares De Laurentiis.

The Prince will be playing a Polo match while lunch is being served, but Giada will have something at the ready for him nevertheless. She promises, "No leftovers for the Prince!"

What's on the menu? Giada will make a royal lunch that includes: Pea Pesto Crostini, California Chopped Salad and Chicken Milanese With a Tomato Fennel Sauce.
