Crown Carveries has produced the first official portrait of Wills and Kate ahead of their April wedding — using only foods found in a traditional roast dinner.

Mitchells and Butlers "regal carvery" brand wanted to create the first official 'fork-trait' with just 12 weeks to go until the big day.

Amongst other ingredients, the image was created using turkey for the skin; beef and gammon for the hair; cauliflower for William's shirt; peas, green beans and sprouts for his jumper; carrots for Kate's dress; and gravy and sauces to define their features and Kate's engagement ring.

Retail operations director for Crown Carveries Martin Gosling said: "The menu choice for the big day has sparked much debate and as Crown Carveries is the most regal carvery brand in the UK we wanted to produce the first official 'fork-trait' using all the majestic ingredients found on one of our princely banquets — a roast with all the trimmings — to give the happy couple a tasteful memento of their special day."

Food artist Prudence Staite of Food is Art spent around two hours putting the masterpiece together.
