Every little detail of the forthcoming event has been analyzed. Bets on Meghan’s wedding dress designer got so intense that in February Betfair stopped accepting them, and despite speculation it’s still a closely guarded secret. But one thing was revealed recently – on March 20, Kensington Palace announced that Harry and Meghan had picked a wedding cake chef.

“For their wedding cake Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have chosen pastry chef Claire Ptak, owner of the London-based bakery @violetcakes,” came the announcement. “Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have asked Claire to create a lemon elderflower cake that will incorporate the bright flavors of spring. It will be covered with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers.”

“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,” the announcement went on. And indeed she did. Meghan clearly admired Ptak’s work, so even after she discontinued The Tig and got ready for royal life, she must have kept her number.
