Meanwhile, reports inform that decades-old slices of cake from British royal weddings will go up for auction

Actress Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will tie the knot on May 19 and believe it or not, the guests to the royal wedding will not be treated with any grand gastronomic spread; the invitees have been asked to get their own food.

The idea is to let everyone get their own tidbits and share food to achieve a picnic-like scenario which will be personal and family-like. 

However, there will be light refreshments and snacks on offer from the royal side. 

According to reports, over 600 people have been invited to Windsor Castle's St. George's Chapel for what is been touted as the biggest wedding of the year.  

Meanwhile, reports inform that decades-old slices of cake from British royal weddings - including those of Prince Charles and Princess Diana, and Prince William and Kate Middleton - will go up for auction.

The five cake slices from royal weddings are expected to fetch hundreds and perhaps thousands of dollars each next month as memorabilia at the sale in Las Vegas, Julien's Auctions said.

"These come from people who attended the wedding and kept them in the freezer the entire time," Julien said of all the cake slices, adding they have not been preserved by other means.
