Whilst everyone loses their minds over the wedding details us foodies can rejoice that we now have a high profile food lover about to become royalty, what great news. If you didn’t already know, our girl Meghan has a truly massive appreciation of food.
She’s a talented cook, a pro at ordering at the best restaurants, and she also doesn’t shy away from sharing her best eats on Instagram. She even ran a food and travel site called The Tig – what a keeper! Still unconvinced? Here are 19 times that Meghan proved she loves food as much as you do.

Be it breakfast or brunch, Meghan doesn’t miss a single trick when it comes to the most important meal of the day.
4. She keeps it real
What would a foodie be without an inspirational quote about pizza?

Whats the best way to a foodie’s heart? A food-related pun of course.

Buying high-quality food that helps the local community, the basis of a true foodie.

Marrying into royalty probably means she’ll be having a lot more dishes like this – and why not, caviar is great.
16. She can keep it lean
Check out this perfect-looking bowl of spelt linguine and turkey meatballs. Looks and sounds delicious.
17. She orders lobster for room service
Meghan is living her best life. She even sings rock lobster while she eats lobster.
18. She loves fried chicken too
In a post to Instagram, she wrote, “Late night fried chicken dinner from @eatflock makes me endlessly happy”. Also look how the tea towel and baking paper resemble the American flag, what a keeper.
19. She has burgers for lunch
You know that feeling when you’re like “I probably shouldn’t have a burger for lunch” and then buy one anyway, Meghan does that too. What a small world.
After reading this list you can only imagine what the food spread at the wedding would be like. Imagine your glutton for food had the budget of the fifth richest monarchy in the world. That sounds like good eating. I think I want to marry Harry now.
