Yes, Queen Elizabeth gets the occasional takeaway! According to The Sun, the longest-reigning British monarch is very much fond of fish and chips.

Duchess of Cambridge

Back in the year 2017, Duchess Catherine revealed her number one takeaway. Kate Middleton said: “Curry, without any doubt”. But she also clarified that Prince William doesn’t eat it as he is not a big fan of spicy food! Furthermore “We don’t usually get it ordered to the palace, we tend to go and pick it up,” before jokingly adding “not ourselves!”

Meghan Markle has, on numerous occasions, admitted that French fries are her favourite food items. Speaking to The Royal UK, she stated: “I could eat French fries all day long.” When we questioned about her ability to eat fries and stay healthy she explained that: “It’s all about balance because I work out the way I do, I don’t ever want to feel devoid of something. I feel that the second you do that is when you start to binge on things. It’s not a diet; it’s a lifestyle.”

Prince William & Prince Harry

Prince William has a new favourite when it comes to taking out meals. The father of three, William, recently revealed he found the choice between pizza and Chinese food the hardest. We know this feeling, don’t we? The Duke of Cambridge also announced that he prefers to eat at Nando’s and once joked he might “buy a stake in Nando’s.”

Just like his elder brother, William, Harry is also in love with Nando’s. In 2013, The Mirror reported that Prince Harry picked up a late-night meal from the Fulham restaurant in London. Back then, he ordered a chicken pitta with extra cheese plus creamy mash on the side and a double chicken wrap with fries. Yummy.

Prince Charles

The next in line to the throne, Prince of Wales, revealed his favourite pizza topping in November 2019. Prince Charles laughed as he was presented with the margarita pizza from a member of the public as he greeted crowds in Scotland.

Chef Erminio Di Meo, 56, told the Press Association: “I wanted to give him the pizza as he is such a big part of this country. He was curious, he smiled and I said it’s a margarita. I believe the prince said ‘it’s my favourite’.”
