Although nearly four years have zipped by since Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot the details of their wedding day feast have finally been revealed.

A copy of the couple’s ornate wedding day dinner menu will be included in a collection of 200 years worth of royal memorabilia set to go to auction next week.

Following the couple’s nuptials in April 2011, more than 300 of their closest family and friends dined in a ballroom in Buckingham Palace tucking into the finest of British produce.

Kick starting the wedding day feast was a fresh herb salad with South Uist salmon, Lyme Bay crab and wild Hebriean langoustines and the accompanying tipple was a 2009 Meursault.
