The Extravagant Menu At King Charles and Princess Diana's Wedding
The wedding of the then Prince of Wales and soon-to-be-princess Diana cost what today would be the equivalent of $156 million. Apart from the venue and clothes, a major chunk of the money went towards an extravagant menu — a French-influenced cuisine, featuring entrées named after the bride and groom, per HuffPost.
The main courses included Quenelles de Barbue Cardinal, a quenelle of brill doused with lobster sauce, and Suprême de Volaille Princess de Galles, a chicken breast filled with lamb mousse named after the Princess of Wales. Sides included fèves au beurre (butter beans), maïs à la crème (cream of corn), and pommes nouvelles (new potatoes).
The wedding party rounded out their meal by dining on fraises (strawberries) mixed with crème caillée (clotted cream). This wasn’t the only sweet treat, though, as in addition to the royal couple's official wedding cake — a towering fruit cake — the final dessert course also featured 20 different cakes to taste test.
