The Hamilton Princess and Beach Club is to throw a special Royal afternoon tea party to celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Saturday.

Guests will be able to choose from a selection of teas, specially chosen for the occasion, to enjoy with their sandwiches and cakes.

Tim Morrison, General Manager of Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, said: “We are so pleased to be offering this special Royal Wedding Tea to our guests.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to indulge, sample some of the Royal Family’s favourite treats and to get in the spirit of the upcoming royal wedding.”

The Prince Harry and Meghan Royal Wedding Blend — a mix of rooibos, apple pieces, black tea, wild rose buds, jasmine, cornflower and calendula petals — was created to commemorate the royal wedding.

The favourite tea of Prince Harry’s late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales — rose congou, which features five layers of rose petals — will also be on offer.

Food will include cucumber cream cheese sandwiches, coronation chicken sandwiches — served at Buckingham Palace since 1952 — and roast beef, beetroot and horseradish crème fraîche sandwiches.

The sweet selection will include caramel banana cake, a childhood favourite of William and Harry, and chocolate biscuit cake — the Queen’s favourite type of cut cake which was served at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Traditional scones with clotted cream and jam will also be served.

The special tea will be available every day between 3pm and 5pm until May 20 and at weekends until July 1.

The Royal Afternoon Tea costs $55, plus gratuities, per person. For $75 per person, plus gratuities, a glass of champagne to toast the happy couple will be included.

Reservations are required for the event.
