Marrying a royal can be a lot of work, but rarely do we think of the experience of the soon-to-be royal’s siblings. Daisy is an average American girl (with English parents) until her sister Ellie starts dating the Crown Prince of Scotland and they get engaged. Suddenly the paparazzi is following Daisy at home in Florida, and her family decides to send her to Scotland to learn how to become more regal. Not only does Daisy have to learn how to act like a royal, she also has to deal with her future brother-in-law’s crazy siblings and fake-date the intriguing but standoffish Miles, the son of a courtier.

The Violet Bakery Cookbook
In March, we learned that Claire Ptak, the owner and head chef of Violet Cakes, would be making the royal wedding cake. While most of us might never get a chance to try the lemon elderflower cake she’ll be making for Harry and Meghan, we can use her recipes to make delicious treats of our own. This cookbook mixes traditional English favorites with a bit of flair, just like Claire—a California native living in London. I’ll definitely be using this book for inspiration for my royal wedding viewing party.
