Prince Harry and Meghan Markle might be tying the knot in the grandest wedding of 2018, but that doesn’t mean everything about their big day will be jaw-droppingly expensive.
According to reports, the loved-up pair are considering serving guests wine from a Kent vineyard that retails for just £13.49. And the best news? You’ll be able to snap up bottles from Tesco when you do your weekly shop. The Chapel Down wine is also available to buy at Waitrose, M&S and Sainsbury’s.
When it comes to taste, the wine is described as combining fresh fruity notes with zesty flavours.
‘A crisp, refreshing white wine with aromas of melon, pineapple, elderflower and grapefruit. The palate is fresh and zesty with flavours of gooseberry and nettle leading to a crisp, dry finish,’ the Chapel Down tasting notes state.
When we reached out to the vineyard in Tenterden about the rumour, a spokesperson sadly told us that they’re ‘unable to comment on speculation regarding the Royal Wedding in May’.
If the rumour proves to be true (we really, really hope it does), it’d show just how down to earth the handsome redhead, 33, and his bride-to-be, 36, really are.
Although it’s never been confirmed, it’s thought that Prince William and Kate Middleton also used the supplier for their wedding a few years ago.
Prince Harry’s 35-year-old brother exchanged vows with Kate, 36, at Westminster Abbey on 29 April 2011.
Despite the fact that the wine in question from Chapel Down is white, we have no doubt that the couple will be topping up glasses with a red variety too.
In fact, Meghan’s now defunct lifestyle blog ‘The Tig’ referenced the name of a Tuscan red wine in its title.
‘Tignanello is a full-bodied red wine that I tried about seven years ago,’ she revealed during an interview with fashion brand Tory Burch.
‘In wine circles, it is nicknamed ‘Tig’ It was my first moment of getting it – I finally understood what people meant by the body, structure, finish, legs of wine. The TIG is my nickname for me getting it. Not just wine, but everything.’
