The celebrity chef won’t be leaving his multi-million dollar fortune to his four children. He also doesn’t allow Matilda, 15, Jack and Holly, 17, and Megan, 18, to eat in his restaurants or fly first class with him.
The 50-year-old told The Telegraph that money’s not his number one objective and “that’s reflected in the way [my] kids are brought up”.
“Last time we went to Royal Hospital Road [Ramsay’s three Michelin starred flagship restaurant in Chelsea] was for Megan’s 16th birthday, and that was the first time we’ve ever eaten there with the kids. They have served the Chelsea pensioners there for Christmas lunch, but not eaten there,” he said.
Ramsay believes his children need to work hard and earn their own money before they reap the rewards of being wealthy.
“They don’t sit with us in first class. They haven’t worked anywhere near hard enough to afford that. At that age, at that size, you’re telling me they need to sit in first class? No, they do not. We’re really strict on that,” he explained.
