One is not a fan – three foods Her Majesty does not like to eat

We already know The Queen’s favourite breakfast cereal, and now we know what not to serve The Queen if she ever comes round for supper.

There are three main things that you should never serve Her Majesty. Those are potatoes, pasta, and garlic.

The Queen has a very strict no starch rule in her diet after breakfast, according to the former royal chef Darren McGrady, as first reported by the Daily Mirror.

However, she does make exceptions when it comes to state dinners.

While The Queen is not a fan of potatoes, pasta and garlic, she does favour grilled fish or chicken. She has a taste for fresh fruit – especially homegrown peaches, as well.

If you ever get the chance to cook for Her Majesty, Darren says the major thing to avoid is garlic: “We can never serve anything with garlic or too many onions. We also couldn’t serve meat that was rare, as she liked her meat more well done.”

The Queen’s go to alcoholic drink is gin and Dubonnet, and we know that she finishes each day with a glass of champagne.

Her Majesty’s restraint when it comes to unhealthier food is perhaps once of the reasons for why she is still a shining example of good health at the age of 90. Although, she does indulge in the occasional Chocolate Biscuit Cake baked by her team of chefs. The delicious treat is sometimes even brought with her when she travels.

“The Chocolate Biscuit Cake is the only cake that goes back again and again and again every day until it’s all gone,” Darren, who cooked for the monarch for 15 years, added.

“She’ll take a small slice every day until eventually there is only one tiny piece, but you have to send that up, she wants to finish the whole of that cake.”
