Meghan Markle and Prince Harry of Wales will finally be walking down the aisle this Saturday! Everyone has been waiting for this grand moment and what better way to watch the Royal Wedding than by throwing a viewing party.
Since the grand event is on a Saturday at 7:00 a.m EDT, throwing a viewing brunch party would be ideal. Want to throw a Royal Wedding brunch reception that your guests will never forget? Not to worry, because we’ve got you covered.
Have a British Buffet
Having traditional British breakfast options at your Royal Wedding gathering is a must. If you’re not able to stock up on your own scones, then make your own tonight! Making scones isn’t as complicated as we think. Try to whip up Authentic British Scones, which are far more dense, a bit on the drier side, and have more of a crumble than your typical biscuits. Technically, the British Scones contain less butter than American Biscuits as well. Once you make these, set some Clotted Cream and jam on the side to top the scones with.

Other items you can whip up for your last minute Royal Wedding brunch extravaganza would be a Traditional Quiche Lorraine, Poached Eggs, Bacon Wrapped Sausages, and a grapefruit, Avocado and Watercress salad. You can also purchase some English Muffins and waffles at your local supermarket in case you don’t have time to make any.

Booze Up or Sip Some High Tea
A brunch without booze is not brunch. With that being said, get your mixology on and make some easy cocktails such as Hot Toddy’s, Mimosas, Pimms Cocktails, and Bellinis. You can’t forget to pop the bubbly either! Of course, if anyone wants to keep their drinks virgin, they can simply sip on some Earl Grey English Breakfast Tea or coffee. Make sure to borrow your mother or grandmother’s teapot for the Hot Toddy’s, tea, or coffee!

If you’re feeling super creative and have a state of the art printer, print out animated masks of Prince Harry, Meghan, and the whole gang.
