Meghan Forced To Give Up Her Favourite Food As The Queen Bans It From Palace Menu
There are a lot of rules royalty must follow.From how to dress to the right way to walk and talk, Meghan Markle will have had to make many changes to her lifestyle when she became the Duchess of Sussex.
As well as learning new habits, the former actress will also have to make some big changes to her diet.
This is because certain foods are off the menu at Buckingham Palace . According to royal chef Darren McGrady, the Queen won't allow some of Meghan's favourite foods, with carbs not typically served at the palace.
He said that the carb ban was a personal choice of the Queen, who prefers not to serve rice, pasta and potatoes.
Pasta is said to be one of Meghan's favourite foods.
In 2013, she is quoted in The New Potato as saying that a “leisurely dinner of seafood and pasta” would feature in her ideal day of food.
Similarly during an interview with Delish.com , the 36-year-old revealed her go-to meal was a pasta and slow-cooked courgette (or zucchini as the Americans call it) dish.
The courgette is cooked for five hours until it breaks down into a "filthy, sexy mush" to stir into pasta.
"The sauce gets so creamy, you'd swear there's tons of butter and oil in it, but it's just zucchini, water and a little bouillon," the Duchess said.
It's also previously been reported that she has had to give up eating another dish she loves - seafood.
Royal Butler Grant Harrold said the royal family do not eat seafood out of fear of getting food poisoning.
He told the Express : “It is a very sensible move to abandon having seafood when out and about on public duties.
“We don't want a member of the Royal family having a serious reaction to food poisoning, especially if she is on an overseas tour.”
Mr Harrold added: “As well as shellfish, it would also be quite appropriate for foods such as foie gras to be avoided.”
Other rules Meghan now has to follow include not being allowed to vote, no selfies, no autographs and she must always travel with a black outfit in case a member of the royal family dies.
