WESTFIELD -

People all over New Jersey are getting ready to watch the royal wedding of the U.K.’s Prince Harry and his soon-to-be wife, actress Meghan Markle.

Jenna DeLorenzi, owner of the Mulberry House English tea shop, says that orders have surged in anticipation of this weekend’s wedding.

“I'm getting so swamped. Everybody wants the scones and the clotted cream so they can feel like they’re actually there or are part of that whole European culture."

DeLorenzi says that customers have been ordering scones and desserts and English sandwiches ahead of the big day.

Stewart's Scottish Market in Kearny has also been taking orders, including Shepherd’s pie and shortbread desserts.

“It's a shortbread cookie with raspberry jam and our personal touch is a chocolate-covered cherry,” says Michael Keefe.

Some New Jerseyans say that they will be hosting viewing parties to watch the nuptials. 

The royal wedding will take place Saturday at 7 a.m.
