Passengers arriving at London Heathrow Airport in the UK this weekend, Saturday, May 19, will be given a taste of the royal wedding with a host of sweet treats and festivities.
The airport will serve 1,000 handmade lemon and elderflower cupcakes to inbound passengers, inspired by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding cake. Arriving passengers will also be greeted by a Queen’s Guard, Beefeater, patriotic bunting and the sounds of a royal trumpeter.
The festivities will take place from 10am-4pm on Saturday, the day of the royal wedding itself, which will be broadcast live across all of the hub’s terminals.
Chris Garton, chief operating officer at Heathrow, commented, “The royal wedding has driven an increase in international visitors who wish to experience a uniquely joyful British event.
“At Heathrow, we’re passionate about creating memorable experiences for all our passengers and certainly want our travelers to enjoy the royal wedding celebration in style.
“What better way to do that than by arriving to a taste of the happy couple’s wedding cake, and a traditional Queen’s Guard, Beefeater and royal trumpeter!”
