The Queen ‘is not a foodie’
Former royal chef Darren McGrady, who has worked for the royal family for over a decade recounts walkie talkie in 2015: “Sadly, the Queen is not a foodie.
“She eats to live, unlike [the now late] Prince Philip, who loves to eat and stand and talk about food all day.
“For breakfast, the Queen likes cereal – usually special K – and fruit.”
He also revealed that she “likes” to eat scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and a layer of truffles but added that she is usually “too frugal to ever order fresh truffles”.
He say: “[She] only really enjoyed them at Christmas when truffles arrived as a gift. ”
Professional chef Darren has worked in the royal kitchen for 15 years preparing meals for the Queen, Prince Harry, Prince William and Princess Diana during their time at Buckingham Palace.
Darren also shared that the Queen does not enjoy pizza and during her 15 years at the palace, not a single pizza was served.
Monarch meals are healthy, low-carb meals, usually grilled fish or chicken with two different vegetables or a large bowl of salad.
That said, the Queen still likes to treat herself to something sweet from time to time – and Darren claims she’s a total ‘addict’.
