Have you ever started pouring ketchup on your freshly cooked Kirkland Signature burger and thought, “Gee, wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a sauce that was created and distributed by the United Kingdom’s esteemed royal family?” Then listen up, peasant, because I have good news for you and the dozens of others like you! Queen Elizabeth II has launched her own brand of condiments! You, too, can taste a bit of the royal life with the QUEEN’s ketchup featuring tomatoes, spices, and just a hint of disdain for the lower classes!
Her Royal Majesty will be releasing two condiments via her online shop. People brings us the sauce:
Queen Elizabeth has released her own brand of condiments, including tomato ketchup and brown sauce (which is like a steak sauce). The products are made at the 95-year-old monarch’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk using ingredients from the grounds.
The ketchup, which is marketed as “ideal for breakfast or any time of the day,” is flavored with dates, apple juice and spices, while the brown sauce is “packed with vinegar and spices.”
The condiments also come with a royal price tag: over $9 for a 10 oz. glass bottle.
While the product launch may seem unexpected, the Queen is said to be a hamburger fan, so the palace kitchen is likely well-stocked with condiments. However, former royal chef Darren McGrady said that the monarch prefers her burger without a bun, eaten with a knife and fork and served with cranberries rather than ketchup, which resulted in Foodhub creating a “Ma’amburger” in her honor.
Here’s a look at the bottles if you care:

One of the most surprising things in this story is finding out that the QUEEN is on the keto diet. Although odd, this isn’t her first food and beverage venture. The royal family released its own gin in 2020 (a great year for drinking hard liquor) as well as a range of beers. Supposedly, all ingredients are sourced from her Sandringham estate. That means every time you take a swig, your lips are touching something that the QUEEN probably stepped on. And now you can get that same experience on your burger. A true royal honor!
While interesting, methinks the royal family has REALLY run of ideas when it comes to deflecting attention from their favorite son. If you see the QUEEN holding a Buckingham Palace fire sale or launching her own line of lingerie, then you know there’s some big trouble ahead!
