So what do Dunkin Donuts and the Royal Wedding have to do with one another? Well if you’re thinking that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be serving the frosting-covered doughy rounds of goodness at their reception, you’d be wrong. But you can have a dozen or so of your very own love-themed donuts at your royal wedding watch party!
Yep, Dunkin’ Donuts is releasing a special limited-edition donut in honor of the royal nuptials. The “Royal Love Donut” is a heart-shaped donut that comes with a jelly filling. As if that’s not enough donut love, it’s frosted with chocolate icing and topped with a strawberry drizzle. Yum!
Oh, but the royal wedding celebration doesn’t stop at a heart-shaped donut. Dunkin’ Donuts is going all out for this super-special occasion. Select guests will have the opportunity to take a Dunkin’ Donut-colored (pink and orange) horse-drawn carriage trip through NYC’s Central Park. (And they’ll get to enjoy “Royal Love Donuts” on their ride too.)
Continuing with donut retailer’s royal theme, IRL princess (and Real Housewife of New York) Carole Radziwill will kick off the event by taking the ceremonial first carriage ride.
Thank you so much for all of the wonderful comments following the release of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle's engagement photographs. The couple are so grateful for the warm and generous messages they have received during such a happy time in their lives. As a way to say thank you, they have decided to share this candid photograph from the day of their portrait sittings directly with all of you.
If you’re wondering why Dunkin’ Donuts is serving up a royal donut on this side of the Atlantic, Dunkin’ Brands Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Nigel Travis, said in a press release, “As the U.S. donut leader, we love helping our guests make special occasions both big and small even sweeter with fun donut designs and flavors. The Royal Wedding represents optimism, happiness and joy, thus is a perfect opportunity for our brand to celebrate. We hope all donut lovers, royalty or not, will enjoy the new Royal Love Donut next week.”
The “Royal Love Donut” will be available at Dunkin’ Donuts stores from May 14 through May 20.
