Is Meghan Markle And Prince Harry’s Wedding Cake Really Going To Be A Banana Cake?

Really? Really, really?

Since the announcement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s engagement, there have been several outlandish rumours that have spun us out. Like, you know: Meghan and Harry are planning to elope in Hawaii! Elton John will be playing at their wedding! Serena Williams will be Maid of Honour!

But we think we like this one the best: Because both Meghan and Harry are crazy about bananas, they are going to have a banana wedding cake served at their reception.

“This will be the first royal wedding cake made from bananas,” The Telegraph reported, noting that Meghan is a big fan of the fruit, and that Harry is known to love "anything with banana".

Former royal chef Darren McGrady corroborated the claim, noting that Harry "loved banana flan, anything with banana really, banana ice cream".

Royal-watchers are slightly taken aback over Meghan and Harry’s cake-choice, apparently. Royal wedding cakes are usually on the more traditional side—sponge cakes and fruit cakes are the norm, with vanilla and chocolate cake being the most common flavour choices. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had a “confectionery masterpiece covered in cream and white icing and decorated with up to 900 delicate sugar-paste flowers,” which was made of fruit cake (from which a piece is saved and eaten on the first anniversary of the marriage—delicious!).

But considering Meghan and Harry are all about slightly deviating from the norm and causing a bit of good-natured royal ruckus, we’re pretty pleased the couple are choosing to buck tradition in the cake-realm, too.

What’s next? The royal dress code is changed to ‘smart casual’? (Please say yes.)
