For months now the entire world was waiting for the glamourus and highly talked about wedding between princ Harry and the „Suits“ star Meghan Markle, and it finally happened! Last Saturday millions of people got to see the royal couple getting married at Windsor Castle, nearby London. Although Harry and Meghan decided to scale down their wedding, especially in comparison to the wedding of princ Harry’s parents princess Diana and prince Charles in 1981 or his brother prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011, inviting only 600 guests to their wedding in the Windsor Castle chapel. Following the public and televised ceremony, their royal and celebrity guests were invited for lunch inside the Castle, hosted by the Queen, which was closed to the public eye. The security measures were so strict that even stars like George and Amal Clooney, Oprah, Elton John, the Beckhams or Tom Hardy weren’t allowed to bring their cellphones.
Not many details of the wedding lunch are known so far, but we do know that the tradition of drinking Croatian wine on royal occassions was continued. Namely, one of the Queen’s favourite wine, traminac from the Croatian region Ilok, also known as „golden traminac“ , was served with a serious of delicious courses during the wedding feast.
Croatia is very well known for its excellent wine and food, which is one of the great passions of princess Meghan, who used to write about fashion, travel and cuisine on her blog „Tig“. Since the strict rules of enterting the royal family means giving up all social media, princess Meghan had to give up her Instagram and Twitter profile, as well as her blog, but we doubt that her passion for great wines, food and travel disappeared with them. The perfect combination of Meghan Markle’s passions is Croatia, especially the south coast and Dubrovnik, offering amazing food, delicious and well-know wine in breath taking surroundings. The Dubrovnik reagion, especially smaller towns like Mlini and Plat, is therefore the top holiday destination for celebrities for years now. The numerous private villas, such as Villa Orlando, offer incredible views of the coastline, the city of Dubrovnik and the light blue Adriatic. The private terraces of Villa Orlando offer seclusion and make the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of the royal wedding wine, while relaxing on one’s honeymoon.
Although the destination of prince Harry and princess Meghan’s honeymoon is still kept secret, there is no doubt that the adventorous spirit of this couple could be well matched with what Croatia has to offer.
