Five royals and their secret treats

The lives of Britain’s royal family sometimes seem a million miles away from our own. But when it comes to favourite treats, it turns out that they’re not so different after all. Take a look at some of the relatable pleasures that royals like the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and even the Queen enjoy.

The Queen and Prince William: Chocolate 

In an exclusive interview with HELLO! in 2016, Darren McGrady, the Queen’s former chef, revealed that Her Majesty "is absolutely a chocoholic," who often requests a chocolate cake among her teatime goodies.
When her grandson Prince William was at school at Eton, near to her home at Windsor Castle, she would invite him over for tea, where the chocolate biscuit cake she served became his favourite. He loves it so much, in fact, that he had one made for his wedding reception in 2011. 

More recently, his wife Kate remarked during a video call to schoolchildren that William couldn't stop eating their supply of Easter chocolate. As the couple wished everyone a Happy Easter, William reassured them that: "There will be a lot of chocolate being eaten here, don't worry!" With a smile, Kate quickly retorted: "You keep eating it!"

Kate: Indian takeaway

Speaking to BBC Radio, the Duchess of Cambridge once explained that her takeaway of choice would be a curry, before adding that Prince William wouldn't eat it with her as he’s not a fan of spicy food. William’s own choice, he said, would be between pizza and Chinese food.

Not surprisingly, the pair clarified that their takeaways are usually picked up for them, rather than delivered to their home, Kensington Palace.

Princess Eugenie: Beyoncé

Last year, Prince William’s cousin Princess Eugenie got together with Kate’s brother James Middleton for a trip to see Beyoncé and Jay-Z perform in London, and the duo were even spotted dancing in the front row.
Princess Eugenie was so starstruck that when Beyonce passed the microphone to her to sing the chorus, she completely froze and forgot the words to 'Irreplaceable'. Although Prince Andrew's daughter failed to remember the lyrics, it is clear from her enjoyment in the video that she is a huge Beyoncé fan!

The Duchess of Sussex: French Fries and wine

Meghan long ago admitted that French fries are one of her guilty pleasures. Speaking to Best Health Canada she stated: "I could eat French fries all day long."

When questioned about her ability to eat fries and stay slender, the famously healthy-living Duchess explained that: "It's all about balance, because I work out the way I do, I don't ever want to feel deprived. I feel that the second you do that is when you start to binge on things. It's not a diet; it’s lifestyle eating."

She also likes to treat herself to a glass of good wine, even naming her now discontinued lifestyle blog, 'The Tig', after her favourite wine, Tignanello, a red from Italy with a fruity taste and underlying spicy tones.

Meghan also appreciates a French Cabernet, Argentinian Malbec or Pinot Noir from Oregon in the US.
