WINDSOR, England: Coffee fans can celebrate the upcoming royal wedding of Prince Harry to actress Meghan Markle by sipping a special type of hot drink: the "Megharrycino".

A bakery in the picturesque town of Windsor, where Britain's sixth-in-line to the throne will marry his American fiancée on Saturday, is serving up cappuccino and latte coffees topped with a frothy portrait of the couple.

Surrounded by Union Jack bunting and a large cut-out of the pair, baristas at Heidi's bakery use a special machine to reproduce an image of one of Harry and Markle's engagement pictures onto the froth with coffee.

Priced at 4.50 pounds (US$6), the drinks, which Heidi bakery co-owner of Edward Durkin described as "unique", are more expensive than usual coffees but were proving popular on Wednesday morning with a steady stream of customers ordering them.

"I'm afraid to spoil it," customer Ann Brooker, 78, said, hesitant to drink her coffee at first before tucking in. "That's the nearest to a kiss you're going to get from Harry," her husband Alan joked.

(US$1 = 0.7424 pounds)
