These are the food items that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle can’t eat as royals.


Well, for royals, almost everyday is like visiting a new place, having to attend a new engagement and meeting new people. In all, it involves a lot of communication.

And so, it’s pretty strict.

We all know that being a working member of the royal family involves rules and regulations, and lot’s of them. Naturally, the rules surrounding the clothes that royals wear are strict, as are the general etiquette rules.

However, we never really thought about food.

“Garlic is a big no-no for us. You always have to lay off the garlic”.

This rule in particular was also confirmed by a former royal chef, Darren McGrady. He also said that the palace chefs have to avoid too much garlic or onion.

Not only this, shellfish is also off the menu for immediate members of the royal family. And that is due to the risk of food poisoning. Foie Gras was also banned from the palace in 2008 by Prince Charles over his personal concerns for animal welfare.
