NUTRITION | Princess Diana’s chef knows the “secrets” of the royal family’s members and reveals them to us so that we can discover how they are always beautiful, in shape and in good physical condition..
From time to time we have heard too many rumors and myths about the royal family habits. A veil of mystery covers the “palace” and this causes the curiosity of the world.
One of these myths was that the royal family is NOT allowed to eat seafood and shellfish. The answer and rejection of this myth came from a photo on Twitter shared by Chef Darren McGrady (chef of pretending Diana). This photo captures a royal menu of 1989 including soufflé de homard as an appetizing dish for the kings of the Winston’s castle.
The picture published was accompanied by a comment: “Proof that the royal family is actually eating shellfish!!!”
Earlier, some reports stated that the newest member of the royal family, Megan Markle, had to stop eating any seafood and shellfish, which was one of her favorite favorites. Megan Markle – as mentioned – should have renounced her beloved food after marrying to Prince Harry.
The famous Chef Darren McGrady – who worked for years (11 years) in the palace and offered his services to the royal family (first at Buckingham Palace and then at Kensington Palace) till the death of Princess Diana (in 1997) in an interview to magazine HELLO referred among other things to the “huge” existing menu (as he stated) to allow any choice from the members of the royal family.
“There was always a great variety of dishes – British and French cuisine! We cooked too many traditional French dishes … such as halibut with Mornay sauce and spinach. Each menu was necessarily written in French. I do not know how long before the royal menus were also written in French. The queen is fluent in French! ”
With the photo-documentary, which was brought to Twitter by the renowned chef, the myth claiming the seafood as a “forbidden food” for the royal family was absolutely rejected!
From time to time we read many stories about the consumption of seafood discouraging people from its consumption.
