With just a few days left until the royal wedding, it’s time to make a game plan. Live coverage starts in the early hours of the morning — like 4 a.m. early — so in addition to some very strong English Breakfast tea, you’ll probably need coffee. As for watch party food, we suggest leaving a full English breakfast until later in the morning. In the meantime, here are the royal wedding-themed noshes we'll be snacking on while watching Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot.

Ice Cream

Ample Hills Creamery, an popular Brooklyn-based creamery, launched a limited edition flavor just for the royal wedding: God Save the Cream. The flavor is a lemon-ginger ice cream base layered with elderflower cake bites. So even though you didn’t snag an invite to the reception, you can at least eat like a wedding guest.

Shortbread Cookies

Walkers Shortbread cookies are a staple at tea time. Break out a tin early. (This is a special occasion after all.) Look for a limited edition royal wedding tin complete with an image of Prince Harry and Markle on the top.

Cookie Cake

The iconic American cookie brand Mrs. Field’s is baking customized cookie cakes for the royal wedding. It’s the perfect way to pay homage to Markle’s American heritage. Order the cookie cake at your local store.



Mac and Cheese

If you’re looking for a hearty meal on the big day, Velveeta is launching a limited edition box of crown-shaped pasta for the occassion. Enter on RoyallyTreatYourself.com to snag a box while supplies last.
