A delicate pavlova in the shape of a crown, filled with crème fraîche and tropical fruits, is prepared by former royal chef Carolyn Robb in this episode of Royal Eats in memory of Princess Diana.

Robb recalls her first meeting with the late Princess at Kensington Palace for a job interview, among other fond recollections of their time together. Robb may have been nervous at first, but the princess’s warm demeanor quickly put him at ease.

Princess Diana frequently visited the kitchen during Robb’s time as royal chef. When she wanted to trick her security guards, she’d sometimes put their radios in the fridge.

Robb pipes the meringue in the shape of a crown and decorates it with pearl sugar and silver sprinkles in honor of her fond memories of Princess Diana. Princes William and Harry used to assist Robb in the kitchen by piping meringues when they were young.

Baked meringues are layered with whipped cream and a colorful assortment of tropical fruits to create Princess Diana’s favorite dessert, pavlova. Still, Robb’s recipe is extremely adaptable, allowing you to use whipped cream or Greek yogurt in place of the crème fraîche and allowing you to swap in any fruit you like.

Watch above as she shows us how to make a pavlova from start to finish. Make this and serve it as the star of your holiday table or family reunion.
