- British Airways is dedicating a flight to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on the day of the royal wedding.
- It will be operated only by crew named Harry, Meghan, or Megan, and serve celebratory Champagne and cake.
- It will fly from London to Toronto – where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle used to live separately – and air episodes of “Suits.”
British Airways is getting in on the fun as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry prepare for their highly-anticipated nuptials.
On Saturday, the day of the royal wedding, the UK’s flagship carrier will operate a flight from London to Toronto – only with crew members named Harry, Meghan, or Megan.
The BA93 flight on May 19 will take off at 1.10 p.m. local time, shortly after the wedding ceremony. (The royal wedding starts at 12 p.m.)
The flight will be dripping with symbolism. Prince Harry and Markle lived in London and Toronto, respectively, before Markle moved to Britain.
While on board, passengers will be treated to lemon and elderflower Victorian sponge cake – the same flavours as the royal wedding cake. They will also be given a personal bottle of Castelnau Blanc du Blanc Champagne.
All customers named Harry, Meghan, or Megan, will also be invited to use BA’s exclusive first-class lounge, the airline said.
And there’s more – so dedicated is BA to celebrating the royal wedding that the airline will show episodes of “Suits,” the TV series Markle is famous for, as well as documentaries and podcasts about how the couple met, and clips of the royal wedding on long-haul flights for the rest of the month.
BA is one of many companies around the world celebrating the royal wedding in creative ways.
Earlier this week, British amateur baker Lara Mason unveiled a life-sized replica of Prince Harry and Markle, modelled off a photograph taken of the couple when they announced their engagement last year.
Austrian candy brand Pez is also launching limited-edition sweet dispensers featuring the couple’s faces.
