Thanks to her pre-royal career as GOOP Lite (aka a lifestyle blogger), we know a lot of Duchess Meghan’s faves including pasta. That’s a biiiiit of a contrast with what THE QUEEN likes to munch on. QE2 is not a fan of starchy carbs and is also apparently so selfish that she makes everyone suffer through whatever diet she’s on because she won’t let pasta show up on the menu at Buckingham Palace. Sigh. There go my dreams of opening a royal Olive Garden!
The Independent says QE2 is more paleo with her penchant for grilled fish and chicken and fresh veggies (and we all know how she feels about booze, the tawdry minx). Because of that, it sounds like it’s all shish kebabs and G&T’s if you’re having a dinner party at Granny Lizzy’s house! She already gave up flashing bare legs and tacky nail polish colors, and now you are going to withhold a good carbonara from Meghan, too?!?! Those veins run cold in the Haus of Windsor!
QE2 doesn’t sound like a TOTAL food Nazi. Former royal chef Darren McGrady said she’ll polish off an entire chocolate biscuit cake by just ordering it up small slice by small slice, which is honestly the same “top off” policy any smart ho uses with wine so it looks like they only had one glass over the course of a night when it was closer to 75. It’s also great to hear that QE2 keeps healthy by eating bananas. Darren said she cuts off the bottoms of the fruit, cuts it lengthwise, and then takes tiny slices. Some might say that’s to prolong a healthy snack, but I just think it’s so no sneaky photographer catches her looking like a wiener is hanging out of the royal mouth! That kind of fruit frivolity was reserved for Princess Margaret.
