Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have much more than Christmas parties and shopping on their minds this holiday season. No matter the budget, any Royal wedding is no easy feat to accomplish, even with a full palace staff of secretaries and attendants. The lovebirds may have already decided one detail, and some may be surprised that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle share a distinct favorite when it comes to dessert flavors. Hints have already been divulged that banana may be the flavor of the day for the wedding of the spring, the year, and for a lifetime for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Cozy cuddling

Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb of “Today” were playfully aflutter this morning, December 5, in breaking the latest royal baking news. Hoda couldn't wait to exclaim “lemon poppy seed” as her choice, while Kathie Lee took her turn with fruitcake, noting the British bent for preferring the Christmas constant of confections.

When banana was announced as the preferred flavor, both morning hosts gave nods of approval. Megan Markle has more than a love for the flavor-- it's clear that she shares Prince Harry's love for the fruit-- in every way. Early on as the two were getting acquainted, she posted a “spooning” pair of bananas, drawn with arms and sleeping faces, on social media.

Countless young, active and energetic contemporaries of the couple would agree that the banana is the perfect snack.

It is completely transportable, easy to throw in a purse or a backpack. It tastes great at room temperature, and the fruit that falls technically into the category of a berry is one of the few fruits that taste and performs better in warmer temperatures than under cold refrigeration. The only downside is that it doesn't stay in plum condition for very long, but buying more is very affordable, especially for this couple, and availability is never a problem.

Beautiful for baking

Bananas are described in regions where they are grown as “the leathery berry” because of their thick and hearty peel that protects them far beyond the thinner skins of other fruits. Bananas are packed in “care packages” and in baked goods to military troops, and Prince Harry likely got his share of the growing treats through his military service in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Bananas are one of the most widely consumed fruits in the world, and because they become sweeter as they ripen, “spotty” bananas are very suitable for baking. Royal chefs are probably already perfecting recipes of organic and natural blends of plantains and the common banana.

One of the most bonding experiences for Prince Harry and his beloved, Meghan Markle, was their camping adventure in Botswana. Prince Harry was taken in even deeper by the fact that his beautiful woman had no problem with a stint of the rough-and-tumble in the wilderness. Can’t anyone imagine that they might have shared a banana or two with native wildlife?

Becoming a favorite

Banana is actually a rising favorite among wedding cake flavors.

Through the past decade, combination flavors have been very popular, and banana cake with chocolate buttercream frosting is second on many lists. Red velvet is another gaining contender. Almond and vanilla still top the choices, but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle aren’t bucking trends too much in their choice for the big day.

Fresh strawberries or raspberries are often recent favorites as toppers to a beautiful wedding cake, so Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may be very creative with banana slices to crown their confection. Being natural, organic, and very much in love looks wonderful on this betrothed pair, and the world is going bananas with wedding hoopla.
