Everyone’s obsessed with the Royal Family right now — from The Crown to Ryan Murphy’s upcoming Charles-and-Diana season of Feud, we can’t get enough of the British monarchy on our TV screens. Our daily dose of Prince George and Princess Charlotte cuteness doesn’t hurt things either, but beyond the scandals, the fashion, and the history, the food is actually pretty interesting, too. Their dietary habits may not be information you thought you needed in your life, but trust us: you do.
We learned last week that Queen Elizabeth always travels with her favorite cake (also, is now our hero), but the monarch’s former chef, Darren McGrady, has spilled even more deets on the family’s diet. And given that he served the Queen for 11 years, you’re going to want to hear what he has to say.
When it comes to self-discipline, Queen Elizabeth is hardcore. “For lunch, it would probably be something like grilled fish with some salad. She wouldn’t have potatoes. Or when she’s on her own for lunch, she doesn’t have the starch. She just does the protein and the salad,” McGrady told WWD. #lowcarbgoals. But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t indulge — in addition to her cake, she’s also a major chocolate lover.
Princess Diana was, according to McGrady, the healthiest of the lot. She opted for chicken, fish, and vegetarian dishes, while making sure to avoid red meat — but that attitude didn’t necessarily extend to her children. The Princess of Wales had McGrady slip Prince William and Harry unhealthy food on the side (much to their nannies’ disproval) because “the Princess just wanted them to be boys.” Aww …
As for the foodie of the bunch, Prince Philip takes the title. He loves to cook, while Prince Charles is all about the organic produce, grown in his own garden. Fancy.
