But when the 69-year-old royal came on he did something – or rather didn’t do something – that puzzled many watching at home. In fact, we’re pretty sure it’s a first for any guest on the popular show.
He didn’t eat anything.
“This is something I’ll remember forever!” Our contestants had the once in a lifetime opportunity to not only cater for His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales but also to meet him. @ClarenceHouse #MasterChefAU pic.twitter.com/nazeRY1NuC

Nope. There was not a single shot of the Prince of Wales putting even one of the delicious-looking canapes on offer into his mouth – despite the contestants being told they were cooking for the royal.
Viewers shared their confusion on Twitter.
Did Prince Charles even try one of those canapés? Because I certainly didn’t see him eat one. #MasterChefAU
