Is Queen Elizabeth upset over Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s choice of wedding cake? That’s the latest claim coming from one of this week’s tabloids, but Gossip Cop can set the record straight. We’re told it’s “not true.”

According to Star, the queen is “going bananas” over Prince Harry and Markle’s chosen flavor for their wedding cake. A so-called “source” tells the gossip magazine, “Her Royal Highness rolled her eyes when the betrothed pair commissioned a banana cake for romantic reasons.” As well-known, the former “Suits” actress is a fan of the fruit, having shared a sweet photo on Instagram of two bananas hugging in 2016.

The outlet’s supposed “insider” goes on to contend in unnatural language that Queen Elizabeth “thought it was a daft, half-baked idea, but chefs assured the sweet-toothed monarch that three cakes will be served.” The tabloid’s seemingly manufactured “source” adds the queen will have chocolate cake at the reception, but as for the rest of the menu, it’s “banana for the newlyweds and a vegan option for their health nut millennial friends!”

Gossip Cop fact-checked the article, which is filled with fake quotes, and a palace insider tells us the story is 100 percent “not true.” While it’s been widely reported that Prince Harry and Markle want a banana cake for their wedding, being held in May at Windsor Castle, the queen is certainly not upset nor has voiced her opinion over their choice of cake flavor. The entire report is nothing more than a fabrication.

Unfortunately, this is just the latest in a string of untrue stories Gossip Cop has had to correct about Queen Elizabeth and the newly engaged couple. For example, we recently busted Star’s sister publication, OK!, when it falsely alleged the queen was “disappointed” with Prince Harry and Markle’s first public outing together at the Invictus Games. Much like that bogus report, this latest one about Queen Elizabeth being upset over Prince Harry and Markle’s choice of wedding cake is equally wrong.
