With Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding on the horizon, everyone wants to get in on the celebratory occasion. Stella Artois is no different. The Belgian beer brand just unveiled a new chalice in honor of the event.
“We’re excited for the happy couple and want to mark this festive occasion with a proper toast!” said Anna Rogers, brand director of Stella Artois. “We at Stella Artois know a thing or two about hosting memorable moments big and small, so we raise a Regal Chalice in celebration.”
The limited edition glass is decked out in gold and even featured 19 gilded icons that commemorate different milestones in the couple’s relationship. It’s like a regal game of “I Spy,” as you try to find and decipher them all.
Some are more obvious and romantic than others. And some are purely delightful from a culinary perspective. There’s a doodle of bananas, which is a nod to the first Instagram pic Meghan Markle posted which fueled speculation of her relationship with Prince Harry (ah, modern love!). There’s also a roast chicken in honor of the first meal they cooked following their engagement. We’re pretty sure the ice cream cone is on there because, who doesn’t love ice cream? Not even royals are immune to a sweet tooth. We’ll let you find and decode the other 16 on your own.
Stella also concocted a cocktail in honor of the upcoming nuptials. The Le Cidre Royale is inspired by the royal wedding cake. Try making it yourself by combining the following ingredients.
- .5 oz Gin
- .5 oz Elderflower Liqueur
- 1 oz Rosé Champagne
- 3 oz Stella Artois Cidre
It can be enjoyed with or without a royal chalice in hand. Even a coffee mug will do in a pinch. Because cocktails are fancy no matter how you drink them.
