Say hello to the “Royal Love Donut.” Just in time for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, Dunkin’ Donuts is releasing a heart-shaped doughnut to celebrate the couple’s upcoming nuptials.

Starting May 14 to May 20, your local, participating Dunkin’ locations will release the limited edition doughnut that’s shaped appropriately like a heart. The sweet treat is a classic doughnut infused with jelly, topped by chocolate frosting and strawberry drizzle.

Of course this isn’t Dunkin’ Donuts’ first time expressing excitement about royal wedding festivities. Back in April 2011, the company released its “Royal Wedding Donut” as Prince William and Kate Middleton wed in a global spectacle.

“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,” the company’s CEO Nigel Travis said in a statement. (Interestingly enough, the executive and brands chairman of Dunkin’ has citizenship in both the U.S. and the U.K.) “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 this week.”
