The lifestyle of the British royal family is largely determined by rules and traditions that often regulate even the diet. For example, the Windsors avoid oysters and other seafood, and garlic is never added to dishes for Her Majesty (Royal Menu: Diet Habits of Elizabeth II). But this does not mean that the residents of Buckingham and Kensington Palaces from time to time cannot afford gastronomic pampering, which does not fit into the royal menu at all. We have compiled a list of the secret culinary weaknesses of some BCS representatives.
Duchess of Cambridge: Indian food
In an interview with BBC Radio 1 in 2017, the Duchess of Cambridge admitted that from time to time she orders herself a curry-flavored meal. Prince William, however, does not share his wife's love for Indian cuisine, since he does not welcome spicy and spicy dishes. By the way, at the same time, Their Highnesses told that it was always extremely difficult for their family to order home delivery: apparently, not every restaurant would risk sending a courier with food to Kensington Palace.
Princess Charlotte: pasta
It is quite possible to be a princess and at the same time, like most ordinary children, adore pasta. Her Highness Charlotte is no different from most of her peers in this, as her mother Katherine publicly admitted during one of her visits in 2018. It is interesting, however, that Charlotte's great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, according to her former chef Darren McGrady, does not welcome this dish and asks not to include it on the Buckingham Palace menu.
Prince George: Pizza
At one time, Princess Diana, to pamper her sons, could go with them to McDonald's. But Prince George, unlike his dad and uncle, prefers pizza with a crust to hamburgers. As His Highness's mother said last year, the heir to the throne especially enjoys not only eating, but also preparing this dish: the prince, according to Catherine, is amused by the process of kneading dough.
Prince William Steaks
His Highness does not like spicy food, but he loves meat with vegetables and potatoes. “I love fried meat. And also not against fried chicken or steak. Medium rare, "- said the prince in an interview.
Duchess of Sussex French Fries
Her Majesty's food preferences have previously been sorted out in detail: after all, before her wedding to Prince Meghan paid a lot of attention to food on her blog The Tig. But in the end, most reviewers came to the conclusion: the most favorite dish of the Duchess of Sussex is fries. “I could eat it all day. I love carbohydrates, and who doesn't?”, Markle once admitted. According to the girl, “fries and wine” is her guilty pleasure (8 combinations of fast food and wine).
Prince Harry: Banana Cake
Next to Meghan Markle, His Highness became slimmer and more athletic. According to some reports, the duchess even persuaded her husband to reduce the amount of meat in the diet. But persuading Harry to indulge himself with sweets less often can be a daunting task. According to former Royal Chef Darren McGrady, Harry and his late mother, Princess Diana, have never been able to resist the banana caramel cake.
Prince Philip: Anything Grilled
And even at the age of 97, Her Majesty's spouse is no stranger to simple joys like driving an SUV and grilling meat, fish or vegetables. The Duke of Edinburgh, according to some reports, also allows himself a little garlic when his wife is not around, but still the greatest joy for him is the dishes cooked over an open fire.
Queen Elizabeth: cereal and chocolate
She can indulge in any kind of exotic food and fancy food. But still, most often, Elizabeth II orders not steaks, not a special kind of caviar, or champagne. Breakfast is very important to the Queen, and her morning starts with a serving of her favorite Kellogg's cereal. In addition, Her Majesty, according to her former chef, cannot live without chocolate: the darker the better.
