The couple recently revealed they have chosen a lemon and elderflower cake for their nuptials.

Meghan and Harry have chosen Californian-born pastry chef Claire Ptak, who runs London-based bakery Violet, to create the cake they will share with guests in celebration.

The wedding cake will be flavoured with lemon and elderflower to ''incorporate the bright flavours of spring'', and be covered with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers.

Kensington Palace announced: ''Claire Ptak, who was raised in California, focuses on using seasonal and organic ingredients in her cakes. Ms. Markle previously interviewed Chef Ptak for her former lifestyle website The Tig. Prince Harry and Ms. Markle are looking forward to sharing the cake with guests at their wedding at Windsor Castle on May 19th.''
