Dunkin’ Donuts is celebrating the upcoming wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with one very sweet doughnut. The coffee chain is set to debut a limited-edition, heart-shaped Royal Love Donut just in time for the upcoming nuptials—and it is the perfect treat to indulge in while watching the royal wedding next weekend.
According to the news release, the jelly-filled Royal Love Donut is topped with chocolate icing and a strawberry drizzle. “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,” Nigel Travis, Dunkin’ Donuts brands chairman and chief executive officer, said in a statement. “The Royal Wedding represents optimism, happiness and joy, and 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 coffee chain is also marking the occasion by offering horse-drawn carriage rides through Central Park on May 14. Real Housewife Carole Radziwill will kick off the wedding-themed festivities by testing out the pink-and-orange-colored royal carriage, which will also offer guests the chance to try the new doughnut. The Royal Love Donut will be available at participating locations nationwide from May 14 through May 20. Dunkin Donuts also offered a “royal wedding donut” in 2011 to celebrate Prince William’s marriage to Kate Middleton.
