“So when I start getting going with the baking … the nerves they go because I just get so engrossed with what I’m doing and I just love it so much … I feel very, very honored that they have selected me to do it.”

Eugenie, 28, younger daughter of Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, will marry Brooksbank, 32, at the queen’s Windsor Castle home, west of London.

Her cousin Prince Harry and wife Meghan had their glittering wedding in May at the same location.

Cabot, originally a costume designer who started her London-based cake design business in 2014, said her cake will be traditional with a modern feel, incorporating an autumnal theme and covered with detailed sugar work.
