Queen Elizabeth has never eaten pizza and can we just stop

The Queen has never lived a ‘normal ‘ animation. She grew up surviving in palaces, being waited on by staff, and you should have seen her perplex saying when she came face-to-face with a supermarket self-service check out for the first time last year. But despite all that, there ‘s one thing I still can not get past : Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, has never eaten pizza. Pizza. No pizza ! Imagine. According to the sovereign ‘s former imperial chef, never has she sunk her tooth into a deep pan stuffed crust pepperoni, with extra mozzarella. never has she enjoyed Pizza Express ‘ brilliant garlic butter as an unnecessary side to one of their Romanas. She credibly has n’t flush had a pizza cut from Gregg ‘s, FFS. It ‘s a travesty, and now I ‘m starting to wonder whether – despite all her travels and tiaras – Queen Elizabeth has ever very lived at all. Darren McGrady, the Queen ‘s former chef who dropped this bombshell, revealed to Us Weekly : “ In the years that I cooked at [ Buckingham ] palace, the Queen never had pizza. ”

Darren was employed by the royals for 15 years, so if the monarch never had pizza in that time, you can probably assume that means she ‘s never had it at all. I ca n’t imagine her with a JustEat score, anyhow. other royals do eat pizza though, which is reassuring. “ I didn ’ thymine start cooking pizza until I moved across to Kensington palace, ” revealed Darren. At Kensington Palace, he cooked for Princess Diana and Princes William and Harry, so it seems there was a sting more normality on the menu over there. “ I [ made ] pizza all the prison term for William, ” the chef added.

There is one redeem factor about this hale conversation, though. apparently Her Majesty does have a particular preference for cocoa – specially if it ‘s dark. I nowadays feel comforted by the think of her tucking into a channel of Bournville every night before settling into another episode of The Durrell ‘s on Netflix. Follow Cat on Instagram.
