Is This Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Wedding Wine?

It just may be — and it’s surprisingly affordable to boot.

Curious chatter about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding on May 19 is reaching a high pitch, with widespread speculation about everything from the bride’s dress (the expectation is something simple and elegant, blending traditional and modern) and hair (probably up, tiara-factor unclear) to who will walk her down the aisle (her retired-lighting-designer dad, it appears).

The soon-to-be-wed royal couple has recently picked the wedding flowers (white garden roses, foxgloves and peonies – Markle’s faves — floral displays with locally sourced foliage, designed by London-based florist Philippa Craddock) and cake (flouting tradition with a lemon elderflower cake with buttercream frosting and real flowers designed by Claire Ptak, of London-based Violet Bakery).

The menu is still a bit of a mystery, though when it comes to the caterer, the smart money is reportedly on Table Talk, the company that catered both the Duke and Duchesse of Cambridge’s 2011 wedding and royal in-law Pippa Middleton’s 2017 nuptials.

But fans of a tipple may be especially curious about the royal wedding wine. Numerous reports indicate that Markle and Prince Harry will serve their guests wine from Chapel Down, the Kent-based wine maker that also provided the wine for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding celebration.

Chapel Down, which bills its vineyard as “The Home of English Wine,” hasn’t confirmed the rumors, but a spokesperson for the company has said that it is "fantastic to be associated with the royal family."

Chapel Down’s wines range in price, but many are not out of the grasp of us commoners. You can try a six-bottle “Introductory Case” offering a variety of “England's finest wines and the opportunity to taste a selection of sparkling and still wines in one case” for £85.00, or just under $120.

That means that, for less than $20 a bottle, even those who aren’t on the guest list for the May nuptials can drink like a royal.
