The royal couple allegedly wants the same wine which was served at Queen Elizabeth’s coronation 65 years ago.
Prince Harry and his fiancé, actress Meghan Markle, will be married on May 19, 2018, in the Chapel of St. George at the Windsor Castle. New details about the wedding are being published daily, and it is now known which wines will the royal family and their guests enjoy, reports 24sata.hr on February 21, 2018.
“We have received information that Prince Harry and Meghan want our Croatian wines at the wedding. We are very honoured, and we will fulfil their wishes,” said Diana Spajić, the marketing manager of Iločki Podrumi, a winery in eastern Croatia, speaking for RTL Television.
The guests will enjoy the 2015 Traminac wine. The 1947 Traminac was served at the royal coronation of Queen Elizabeth II 65 years ago. One bottle of that wine, according to experts, today costs around 55,000 kunas.
“We have also sent wines for the wedding of Prince William and Duchess Kate, and the same wine was drunk by Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla during their visit to Croatia,” said Spajić.
The couple’s engagement was announced in late November 2017, and Meghan proudly showed the engagement ring which was designed by Prince Harry. The ring was made of the jewellery of late Princess Diana. The ceremony itself will be held in the magnificent Chapel of St. George at Windsor Castle and it will be led by the dean of Windsor David Conner, while wedding vows will be exchanged in front of Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the head of the Anglican Church.
