With the British Royal Wedding less than 100 days away, it’s time to ponder the important questions, like “What wine(s) will be served at the reception?”

Markle has made no secret for her love of wine, in particular the iconic Super Tuscan Tignanello. Her (now defunct) blog was named “The Tig” in honor of the wine, a Sangiovese-dominate blend with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Though it’s not cheap ($105 for the 2013, which received 94 points and made our Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2017 list) we can assume money is no object at a Royal Wedding.

Markle went into greater detail for Delish, where she reveals, in addition to her favorite Italian bottling, she’s also a fan of Malbec from Argentina, Cabernet Sauvignon from France and Pinot Noir from Oregon.

Not content to just stick to reds, Markle continues, “In the summer…when I’m out with my friends, it’s rosé all day.” We’d like to suggest that rosé is a royal wine year-round. What would look more delightful in a glass at such a momentous occasion?

Find out what our London editor thinks Markle should drink to acclimate to the British life.
