Queen sent angry hand written note to kitchen staff after finding dead slug on her plate


QUEEN ELIZABETH II reportedly sent an angry note to her kitchen staff about a dead slug she discovered in her salad, according to her former royal servant.

He said: “Once, on a torn-off top sheet the footmen found the dead body of a slug.”

The Monarch had written: “I found this in the salad – could you eat it?” which was next to the animal’s body.

According to Cosmopolitan, British culture researcher Bryan Kozlowski, recounted the incident in his book Long Live The Queen: 23 Rules for Living from Britain’s Longest-Reigning Monarch.

Oliver suggested the Queen employs the use of the pad so she can write down notes about culinary likes and dislikes from her guest’s food preferences which the staff will reference the next time they are in the Queen’s company.

“This is duly recorded by the kitchen and remembered, should the guest come again.”

He wrote: “The Queen will make a discreet note for future reference.”

Oliver claimed that the Queen’s notepad usually remains blank as she is “not fussy about food.”

According to Royal biographer, Katie Nicholl, the Queen’s breakfast consists of a “simple cup of tea and biscuits, followed by a bowl of cereal.”

According to the Queen’s former chef Darren McGrady lunch often includes grilled fish with courgettes or wilted spinach.

According to The Telegraph, The Queen’s favourite cereal choice for breakfast is Special K, which is stored in plastic tupperware as the Queen believes it keeps the cereal fresh.

The Queen also likes fish for breakfast, the book Dinner at Buckingham Palace reveals.

An extract told how the Queen “has been partial to kippers since the war years” when she and Princess Margaret were at Windsor Castle.

“Kippers, in a number of uncomplicated variations, have remained a favourite with the Queen ever since – for breakfast, as a savoury or a late-night supper.”

“The Queen is also fond of smoked haddock as a breakfast dish,” another diary excerpt read.
