Queen ‘not a foodie’
Former royal chef Darren McGrady, who worked for the royal family for over a decade told The Telegraph in 2015: “Sadly, the Queen is not a foodie.
“She eats to live, unlike [the now late] Prince Philip who loves to eat and would stand and talk food all day.
“For breakfast, the Queen likes cereal – usually Special K – and fruit.”
He also revealed she “loved” to eat scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and a grating of truffle but added she was typically “too frugal to ever order fresh truffles”.
He said: “[She] only really enjoyed them at Christmas when the truffles were sent as a gift.”
Pro chef Darren worked in the royal kitchen for 15 years preparing meals for the Queen, Prince Harry, Prince William and Princess Diana during his time at Buckingham Palace.
Darren also shared that the Queen did not enjoy pizza and during his whole 15 years at the palace not a single pizza was served.
The monarch’s meals are healthy, low-carb affairs, usually grilled fish or chicken with two different vegetables or a big 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 “chocaholic”.
