Why We're Convinced Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Will Have A Banana Cake

Prince Harry goes bananas for bananas. Meghan Markle is American. Put the two together, and there is more than a little evidence to suggest they'll have a wedding cake that's not at all typical for British royalty. Exhibit A: A source recently told The Telegraph that the couple — who are getting married at Windsor Castle on May 26, 2018 — is planning on serving a banana cake. "This will be the first royal wedding cake made from bananas," they said. Now, we know to be skeptical about things said by "a source." But a few other factors support the Great Banana-Wedding-Cake Theory of 2017. Which leads us to... Exhibit B: Prince Harry is known to love anything with bananas in it. Harry's former royal chef, Darren McGrady, who cooked for Princess Diana and her two sons for four years, told Hello! magazine last year: "They liked comfort-food dishes. They loved banana flan, anything with banana really, banana ice cream. They loved things like mixed grills, burgers, pizza, spaghetti and meatballs, chicken, and cream chicken sauce... They were royal children, but they still had children's palates." Exhibit C: This cutesy Instagram Meghan Markle posted 13 months ago, when she and Prince Harry started dating. The spooning bananas, together with the caption "Sleep tight" and two kisses, seem to signify a private joke between the two. Sleep tight xx (Update: Thanks so much to those who shared the photo cred :) I didn't know, and I love it! Credit where credit is due: I'm bananas for this @percxption)
