Details are now coming out about the evening reception at the royal wedding and, according to reports the chef responsible for the evening meal for the 200 chosen guests at Frogmore House was none other than Clare Smyth.

Smyth, Chef Patron of Core by Clare Smyth in Notting Hill was hired to cater both the sit down meal and the food later in the evening for those still standing. Apparently we're told that wagyu burgers, pork belly and candy floss was the order of the day. Which is interesting, as it certainly doesn't sound like the kind of food you'd naturally expect from the chef.

By picking Clare, following the choice of dress designer, Clare Waight Keller, does make sense - both women are at the top of their respective fields. So while Waight Keller was the first Givenchy's first female artistic director, Clare Smyth was this year picked as Best Female Chef by the World's 50 Best awards.
