Royal Dinner anyone?

England's buzzing with the Royal wedding(me not so much) but it got me wondering,, if you were treated to a royal wedding dinner, what would you expect. Cucumber sandwiched without crusts?

I would expect some really fancy looking dishes with a whole host of fancy foods. I would think there would be lamb (I heard there are more sheep than people in Wales.) I would also expect a really awesome dessert display. I think it would be like platinum weddings on steroids.

To bloody much Tom mate, I can get you the figures if you want
The cost was born by the British Tax payer so not only the English payed for these carbuncles on the behind of humanity.
