If you want to dine like Meghan Markle then here some royal recipes straight from the palace!

You could not be more English if you tried. Invented in 1823 by James Pimm, who served it at his London Oyster Bar, it has become synonymous with cricket matches and the Wimbledon Tennis Club.

  • Fill 2 pitchers 1/4 full with ice.
  • To each, add a layer of orange slices, a few lemon slices, and a layer of cucumber slices.
  • Repeat the layering.
  • Pour in the 2 cups of Pimms and 4 cups of 7 Up or Sprite, dividing between pitchers, and mix with a long-handled spoon.
  • Poke mint sprigs and leaves down into drink.
  • Divide drink among 8 tall glasses, with a few slices of fruit and cucumber in each glass, along with some mint leaves.
