Ahead of their wedding this Friday, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have revealed what wedding cake they have chosen for their big day.

And it sounds like they may have taken some inspiration from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry!

Yes, you may remember the Duke and Duchess of Sussex broke from tradition to choose a stunning spring-inspired lemon elderflower cake covered in buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers.

While the palace's chefs usually serve a booze-soaked fruitcake decorated with marzipan and white icing for royal nuptials, Eugenie and Jack have instead requested a red velvet and chocolate cake.

The happy couple have chosen London baker Sophie Calbot to create the cake they will share with guests in celebration.

Kensington Palace announced: "The red velvet and chocolate cake will be a traditional cake, with a modern feel. It will incorporate the rich colours of autumn in its design and will be covered with detailed sugar work including ivy."

Following the announcement, Sophie said: "I am incredibly excited to be given this wonderful opportunity to create such a special and unique cake. It has been lovely working with Princess Eugenie and Jack and I really hope they enjoy the cake on the day."

Traditionally, the royal's wedding cake is a fruitcake, because it lasts long enough to be served at the christening of the couple’s first child.
