The menu of Queen Elizabeth II, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle – Italian Cuisine


Going to discover the eating habits and favorite dishes of Queen Elizabeth II, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, here is the real menu that we would offer them from appetizers to desserts!

Imagine inviting the Queen Elizabeth II, Kate Middleton is Meghan Markle for a lunch or dinner. It would be a table to say the least interesting: each of the royal guests with stories certainly pleasing and, why not, intriguing to tell. Starting from His Majesty and his 67 years of reign sprinkled with important events up to the anecdotes on the set of Suits (the TV series in which Harry's wife acted) or the secret adventures in college with William … in short, they would have something to do with stimulating chatter! Or we could have fun dreaming of be the chef of Buckingham Palace and having to manage the historical kitchens of the royal family; after all, Carnival is not far! In both cases, what should we not miss on the table to satisfy the royal palate?

Traditional cuisine for Elizabeth II

First of all, two very important rules not to be underestimated that reminds us Kiersten Hickman: the first is to follow the Queen leaving her the right to sit down at the table, the second to start and finish the meal with her (and hurry up: otherwise you risk not finish what you have in the pot). This royal etiquette it gives us one more reason to serve Elizabeth's favorite foods, which have been revealed to the subjects of Darren McGrady in his best seller Eating Royally. The former court chef calls Her Majesty not exactly a kitchen enthusiast, rather a person who simply "eats to live", very disciplined and with an eye to the line, which she maintains thanks to the rule no-starch, ie no starches, avoiding, then pasta, rice and potatoes (a source of disappointment with Meghan Markle, it seems). If McGrady reveals the pleasure for the gin-based cocktails or the passion for the dark chocolate, is John Higgins to affirm to the "National Post" that during his work at Buckingham Palace the royal fridges always had a good supply of mango, fruit loved by the Queen. From the "Telegraph", on the other hand, Owen Hodgson declares that His Majesty loves thewell cooked roast with mushrooms and side dish marmite, The spreadable cream based on brewer's yeast extract that can never be lacking in an English kitchen. One last trick is thegarlic, which is particularly unwelcome and therefore absolutely prohibited in any recipe!

Italian-style Sgarro for Kate Middleton

To make happy Kate Middleton it takes very little: his favorite dish is the Pizza! During an official visit to a school in Islington, London, last January, we saw her smile satisfied with her hands literally in paste. He declared to cook pizza herself with the help of her children Charlotte is George, also their fans of the Italian dish. On that occasion, a funny anecdote about the Queen: a child asked the Duchess of Cambridge if the mother-in-law likes the pizza unwittingly in difficulty: "It's a good question I can not answer … The next time I see her I'll ask her". Moreover, as we said before, His Majesty does not allow carbohydrates at the table and actually the choice leads to excellent results given his iron health. Remove from the list, normally Kate Middleton prefers aprotein nutrition, healthy, without fats and sugars; to prepare for his wedding with William he had followed the Dukan Diet. Fruit pies or mixed fruit salad they are his favorite desserts, not to be missed at the table!

All American for Meghan Markle

As for the sister in law, also the Duchess of Sussex follows a strict diet with few sugars and zero fats. The woman from the thinner ankles of Hollywood has every intention of maintaining her slender physical form that we have admired since the wedding in white Givenchy designed by her friend Claire Waight Keller. The transition from set to court commitments has been quite natural: it is always impeccable next to her husband Harry, to whom he has changed eating habits. Even for the red prince, just coffee, alcohol and meat. In fact, the 36 year old eats food plant-based during the week and leave the weekend for some concession like the roast chicken. But there is a dish that Meghan Markle has difficulty giving up: le fries! In fact, he declared: "I can not wait to have lunch with friends so I can order French fries and share them with everyone". Another dish that reminds you of childhood is mac and cheese, who likes to prepare herself with the addition of peas.

Christmas pudding recipes

One of our favourite Christmas recipes has got to be a homemade Christmas pudding.

A hearty, flavoursome bake, Christmas puddings are traditionally made on Stir-up Sunday which falls on the last Sunday before December starts (the last before advent). In 2012, this is on 25th November but don’t worry if you don’t make it then, our selection of easy recipes has ideas you can make right up until the day itself.

Starting with our traditional Christmas pudding recipe, which comes with a handy step-by-step video recipe to ensure you get yours just right, our selection of the best recipes on goodtoknow features some delicious new flavour combinations as well a boozy version and a vegetarian alternative so you can suit your bake to any occasion or guest.

We’ve also got some great ideas for Christmas pudding alternatives if you’ve got any relatives that aren’t too keen on the rich taste. Our gingerbread pudding, from Christmas queen Delia Smith herself, and our Lincolnshire carrot pudding have the same kind of feel as the traditional bake but with a lighter taste.

Top tip: Whenever you make you Christmas pudding, it will take up to 4 hours to re-heat on Christmas day as you need to steam it to do this. Give yourself plenty of time – you don’t want lots of hungry faces waiting for their pud!
