9 Foods Queen Elizabeth II Would Never, Ever Eat

Garlic and onions


Apparently, someone meeting and greeting as often as The Queen doesn’t want particularly pungent breath. Her Majesty won’t eat anything with too much garlic or onions, according to McGrady.

Save the bread crusts for the birds. Her Royal Highness prefers the edges to be cut before her tea sandwiches are served. “A chef told me off for serving the sandwiches with crusts,” former Royal chef Owen Hodgson tells The Telegraph. Queen Elizabeth II likes her tuna sandwiches with both sides buttered, a tuna and mayonnaise mix, thin slices of cucumber, and a dash of pepper. Check out the 13 foods Queen Elizabeth II eats every day.

Out-of-season fruit

Queen Elizabeth II is all about eating with the seasons. That means if nature wouldn’t grow it, she won’t touch it. “You can send strawberries every day to The Queen during summer at Balmoral and she’ll never say a word,” McGrady tells RecipesPlus.“Try including strawberries on the menu in January and she’ll scrub out the line and say don’t dare send me genetically modified strawberries.”

Whole banana


A Royal would never stoop so low as to look like a monkey when eating a banana. Queen Elizabeth II doesn’t use her bare hands. Instead, she uses a fork and knife to cut the top and bottom of the banana, then slit the peel to get the fruit out. Next, she cuts the banana into little coins so she can eat it with a fork. On an even weirder note, there’s one type of cake Queen Elizabeth always takes when traveling.
