As you know, the royal family are all about rules. There are guidelines that dictate how they can sit, what they can wear and how they can speak.
And now a former royal chef has revealed the Queen is also very strict about the foods that can be consumed within the walls of the palace.
Darren McGrady, who has over 15 years of experience working at Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace, previously revealed that garlic is a big no-no when it comes to cooking for the Queen.
But there is also one specific dish her Royal Highness has put a complete ban on.
Speaking of royal protocol, these are all the royal rules Meghan Markle has broken.
Speaking to Recipes Plus, McGrady revealed that the Queen does not eat pasta… And suddenly we’re thinking being a royal might not be all it’s cracked up to be.
Apparently, the Queen finds the dish – along with rice and potatoes – far too starchy. While we can see what she means, banning it from the home completely seems a little extreme. Who wants a carbonara-free life?
Instead, the Queen enjoys a sensible diet that consists mainly of chicken, fish, fruit, vegetables and salad.
Shellfish is also off the menu for any royal who is eating out, because it contains a higher risk of food poisoning than most other foods.
If there is anyone who doesn’t have time for a stomach bug, it’s the Queen.
