The Coronation of King Charles III is fast approaching, and it is expected to be a celebration that we have not seen since the late Queen’s official crowning in 1953. As tens of millions of people are likely to watch the event on TV, along with countless street parties and a nationwide bank holiday, many will be looking forward to enjoying the historical moment with a quintessentially British pairing – tea and cake.
Which cake matches the personality of each member of the Royal Family? The UK’s largest independent online cake manufacturer, Sponge.co.uk, has revealed the perfect pairings for each member of the Royal Family, including King Charles and the Queen Consort, the Prince and Princess of Wales, and of course, Prince Harry.
Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex – Ginger and Walnut Carrot Cake
The ‘Ginger and Walnut Carrot Cake’ is the perfect pairing for Prince Harry’s personality. Like the cake, Harry is undeniably a fruity sponge with a tinge of spice at times.
Kate, Princess of Wales – Victoria Sponge
Kate’s personality matches perfectly with the ‘Victoria Sponge’ cake. It is classy, quintessentially British, and universally popular, just like the Princess of Wales.
William, Prince of Wales – Chocolate and Caramel Cake
Prince William best suits the ‘Chocolate and Caramel Cake.’ Both are smooth, soft, and reliable for any occasion.
Sarah, Duchess of York – Nutella Cake
The ‘Nutella Cake’ is the perfect pairing for the Duchess of York’s personality. Like the cake, Fergie is a bit nutty and not everyone’s first choice, but once given a chance, both the cake and Fergie will prove a welcomed, unique choice.
Anne, Princess Royal – Lemon Drizzle
The ‘Lemon Drizzle’ is the perfect pairing for Princess Anne’s personality. It is zingy, sharp, and its conversations are juicy, in keeping with her quick wit and unique sense of humour.
Prince George of Wales – Rainbow Cake
Prince George is perfectly matched with the ‘Rainbow Cake.’ It is fun, innocent, admired by all, and never receives a frosty reception.
Camilla, Queen Consort – Red Velvet Cake
The ‘Red Velvet Cake’ is the perfect pairing for the Queen Consort. It is romantic, passionate, and bright, just like Camilla’s feelings towards her King.
King Charles III – Kale and Apple Cake
As King, Charles’ unique personality is perfectly captured by the ‘Kale and Apple Cake.’ The bright green color of the cake represents his never-ending support for greater sustainability and protecting the environment.
Each Royal Family member has a completely different cake to match their unique personality. Are there any missed Royals here? What cake would you match with each member of the Windsors?
