While Kate Middleton walked down the aisle of Westminster Abbey in that jaw-droppingly gorgeous lace wedding dress more than four years ago, we still can't help but obsess over every last detail of her wedding to Prince William on April 29, 2011. And this latest reveal not only has us giddy over royal wedding details, but also a bit hungry as well.
A menu card from the couple's royal post-wedding breakfast is up for auction, People reports, with a starting big of £650 (almost $1,000). The ornate, decorative menu for the meal, which was served to just 300 of the newlyweds' closest friends and family in the Buckingham Palace ballroom, has never been revealed before, as that part of the wedding was completely private.
After the official ceremony, which was attended by 1,900 people at Westminster Abbey, Queen Elizabeth hosted a post-wedding breakfast of champagne and canapés at Buckingham Palace for 600 guests. Later that evening, Prince Charles threw a dinner dance for about 300 guests in another one of the palace's state rooms.
At the top of this newly revealed menu is Prince Charles' heraldic badge of three white ostrich feathers emerging from a gold crown with the words ''ICH DIEN,'' which translates to ''I SERVE." The badge and meal description is flanked by delicate drawings of ivy and birds on either side. A small, and what we can only assume is un-planned, decoration on the menu is a small food stain near the dessert description.
So what did Prince William and Princess Kate's guests dine on? The three-course meal kicked off with marinated South Uist salmon, Lyme Bay crab and wild Hebridean langoustines along with fresh herb salad. Guests were also treated to a 2009 Meursault, Domaine Guyot-Javillier wine.
The second course featured Saddle of North Highland Mey Select organic lamb, Highgrove spring vegetables, English asparagus, Jersey Royal potatoes and sauce Windsor. It was enjoyed alongside a 2004 L' Hospitalet de Gazin, Pomerol wine.
The royal celebratory meal ended with a mouth-watering trio of Berkshire honey ice cream, sherry trifle and chocolate parfait and came with Laurent Perrier Rose Champagne. Yum!
