It’s the wedding everyone wants to attend. But even if you’re not among the 2,640 people invited to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s May 19 marriage, you can still celebrate and have a sweet time.
Here are five delicious ways to salute the pair.
1) Tea off
A special Royal Tea inspired by the couple’s go-to eats is being served throughout May at the posh Palm Court (theplazany.com) at the Plaza Hotel in Midtown. On the menu: tuna niçoise canapé inspired by the bride’s favorite salad; a roast chicken “BLT” in honor of the groom’s proposal over poultry, and a banana toffee cake pop with rum as a nod to the prince’s favorite dessert. There will also be sweet and savory bites inspired by traditional British fare, including a red, white and blue sherry trifle that evokes the Union Jack. It’s all designed for “guests to celebrate and feel like a Royal for a day,” says the Plaza’s executive chef Sani Hebaj. ($105 a pop, includes a glass of champagne plus scones and treats.)
2) Carbon-ate a copy of their wedding cake
The new Lemon Elderflower Soda at Trader Joe’s is a refreshing way to toast the royal couple. The sparkling beverage’s flavors match the ones in their custom wedding cake being made by celebrity baker Claire Ptak. Like the soon-to-be-newlyweds, the soda is “bright and bubbly.” A four-pack of 8.4-ounce cans is $3.49. (traderjoes.com)
3) Be a smart cookie
The Ginger Prince and the former “Suits” star’s nups will air on various networks. “Today” show coverage begins at 4:30 a.m. ET. I do’s are set for around 7 a.m., the perfect time for a sweet treat for a quick energy burst. Bang Cookies’ Royal Wedding Cookie Trio ($15) are decadent, soft-baked and packed with organic milk and white chocolate. The cookie that nods to the Queen is infused with her favorite tea, Earl Grey. Markle’s is dusted with cinnamon and sugar. Harry’s packs a wallop of ginger — for obvious reasons. Available for pre-order until May 19 at bangcookies.com.
4) Mug for the bride and groom
If people’s faces adorn your coffee cup, they should be as cute as the soon-to-be-newlyweds. At Tea & Sympathy, a U.K. outpost at 108 Greenwich Ave. in the West Village, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle mugs are $15 and up. They’re dishwasher safe — something the newest member of the royal family probably won’t have to worry about.
5) Indulge like Lady Mary
"Downton Abbey: The Exhibition," a spinoff for folks who can’t get enough of the hit TV series, celebrates the royal couple throughout May with events at 218 W. 57th St. in Midtown. Celebration scones — from Tea & Sympathy — with clotted cream and jam is one slated tastebud tickler on May 2. A Downton tea giveaway is set for May 16.
