Michael Buerk is joined by chef Anna Haugh in the magnificent kitchen of one of Britain's grandest stately homes to celebrate food served at royal weddings. Anna is inspired by an Italian lamb dish served at the wedding of Queen Victoria's youngest daughter.

Food historian Dr Annie Gray meets Fiona Cairns, the baker who created the official wedding cake for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The former chef to Charles and Diana cooks the chocolate biscuit cake that Prince William chose as an alternative cake for his wedding.

Plus the programme unearths a recipe that has been hidden in the royal archive for over 100 years. It's for a poignant pudding served at a wedding anniversary to a widowed queen. Show less
