Ladbrokes and William Hill predict which English wines will be served at the royal wedding

Earlier this year we teamed up with bet-maker Ladbrokes to bring you the odds on red, white, and sparkling wines that will be served at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.

English wine, and in particular fizz, has gained a lot of attention from the royal family in recent years.

Buckingham Palace staff have revealed that bowl food made up from ‘classic dishes’ created from seasonable British produce will served to guests during the lunchtime reception, according to the Wine and Spirits Trade Association (WSTA).

And while some details are starting to come through, the wines to be served remain a mystery.

The WSTA recently sent a hamper filled with English sparkling wines to Harry and Meghan in a bid to “help them chose something made on UK soil,” according to a note sent out on Thursday 17 May.

And what’s more, Ladbrokes has re-issued its odds on royal wedding wines, alongside William Hill which is also making predictions on English sparklers the pair will toast with on Saturday.

Keep scrolling to find out the bookies’ favourites to be served this weekend.

    I hope its Pol Roger (as its naturally the best choice anyway) and hope the bookies take a complete spanking. English wines are for tourists.

  2. Katharine O'Callaghan says:

    I would be absolutely amazed if they don’t go for a top notch English Sparkling Wine (any of the wines featured in your article are more than up to the job). Why would you go for a French Champagne when there is so much amazing home-grown fizz?

    Got to be Hattingley Valley, surely? and Reece, are you completely mad? English fizz regularly scores higher in blind tastings with Champagne, and Pol Roger is an acquired taste for most, it’s mild salinity not to most people’s liking – plus, it’s French! You really need to get out more, or just open your mind if you really believe that English wines are just for tourists – you are seriously ill-informed.
