Watch: How to make your own version of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding cake
In our new video Tanya Daye shows you how to make a lemon and elderflower wedding cake as chosen by the royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ahead of their wedding next month.
The pair are set to tie the knot at St George’s Chapel, Windsor on May 19.
- Harry chooses big brother William as best man
- Meghan’s attention turns to wedding after Anzac Day engagement with Harry
- Bride-to-be Meghan Markle turns heads with daring look
The American actress is expected to concentrate full-time on planning her nuptials after Kensington Palace said Ms Markle had no more official events planned with her fiance.
The couple wowed crowds last month when they visited Northern Ireland for the day, stopping off at Belfast's famous Crown Bar for lunch.
Harry has not waited until they are married to introduce his fiancee to life as a member of the royal family, and appeared eager to have his bride-to-be share the workload.
Since the couple announced their engagement on November 27 they have carried out 16 days of royal engagements together, starting with a visit to Nottingham and ending with a series of Anzac Day commemoration events in London on Wednesday.
