We’ll probably never know what it is exactly the Royal family get up behind closed doors.
Life could be one long formal banquet. Or it could be even more dull and repetitive than our daily routine.
One thing is for certain, if it is one long formal banquet, there are a few things which are guaranteed to not feature on the menu .
We’re not talking about spam and Turkey Twizzlers either.
Chef Carolyn Robb worked as a full-time cook in Kensington Palace and actually fed Prince Charles, Princess Diana, William and Harry between 1989 and 2000.
And there was one ingredient which was forbidden.
Carolyn later went on to write The Royal Touch, about her time feeding the world’s most famous family and in a promotional interview with Racked , she revealed some tantalizing details.
When asked if there was anything she was instructed not to make, Robb answered with one surprising and key ingredient.
“The only thing that was forbidden was garlic.”
She explained, “And the reason for that was that they obviously did a lot of public engagements and were in close proximity to people and never wanted to have garlic.”
Fair enough, if part of our job was talking in close proximity to others, we’d want to ensure our breath was fresh.
Robb painted a charming picture of the royal kitchen, detailing how everything was made from scratch.
She also mentioned that Prince Charles was a huge fan of saving leftovers in tupperware.
