Royal treat for Macaroon queen
A BIRMINGHAM patisserie chef has received an official invite to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.
Rosie Ginday, who runs Miss Macaroon in Great Western Arcade, made sweet treats for the royal couple when they recently visited Birmingham – and now the entrepreneur has been invited to the couple’s wedding on May 19.
Ms Ginday, a former chef at Purnell’s restaurant, founded Miss Macaroon as a social enterprise in 2011 to provide training and employment opportunities for disadvantaged young people.
The 34-year-old said she was “delighted and surprised” to have received the invitation after impressing the couple with macaroons she and her trainees made when the royal couple recently vis- ited Birmingham. Harry and Meghan visited Millennium Point last month and met female students as part of International Women’s Day.
Ms Ginday supplied macaroons baked at her Aston kitchen premises for the special event to inspire young girls to pursue a career in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths). She met the couple on the day and macaroons were given out as gifts.
She has now been invited to the wedding as part of the 1,200 community leaders and inspiring children’ programme.
‘Miss Macaroon’ said in a statement: “We’re really excited that our founder Rosie Ginday has been invited to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding in May! We’re looking forward to be part of this joyous occasion.”
On meeting the couple, Ms Ginday previously told the Post: “I’m excited to meet Meghan and think it’s great she will be joining the Royal Family.
“She does a huge amount to promote female causes which not a lot of people know about.”
