Royal diet: what foods Elizabeth II forbade Meghan Markle to eat24.05.2022
Being the wife of a prince is not easy! As soon as you got into the royal family, you immediately have to give up many of the delights of ordinary life and live according to new laws. Meghan Markle recently married Prince Harry , and is now gradually getting used to being a duchess. No social networks, candid filming and even … favorite dishes!
Obviously, for Megan it will be very difficult, because she is a real gourmet! Now that she is a member of the royal family, the girl has to follow a number of very strange rules and principles of etiquette. One of them is the refusal of certain dishes during official trips to other countries.
In the list of prohibited foods, garlic and any dishes with its use are in the first place.
However, this useful product is banned from all members of the royal family. The reason for this is that numerous meetings and formal events that involve communication should not be overshadowed by bad breath.
This rule doesn’t seem likely to change anytime soon, as Queen Elizabeth II literally hates garlic.
“We never cook or serve dishes with garlic or lots of onions. The Queen has never had garlic on the menu,” explained Darren McGrady, the royal chef at Buckingham Palace.
Shellfish became the second food forbidden during trips for members of the royal family. This is due to the high risk of food poisoning, which is understandable: royal visits are scheduled to the minute, and such a situation can permanently disable the body and disrupt an important event.
It is worth noting that the first official trip of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry as a married couple will take place very soon: in October and, obviously, will take place without gastronomic delights.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will travel to Dublin and then to Australia, after which they will also visit Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga in Polynesia and New Zealand. Alas, the spouses will have to feast on seafood with garlic sauce another time, in a more intimate and informal setting.
How do you feel about such bans?
