Only six months ago did Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcome their first child, Archie into the world, and since then the media has followed him growing up, with his parents sharing it with their fans when he has reached a new milestone.
And according to royal commentator Omid Scobie, the baby royal just reached another important milestone, for a baby at least. The six-month-old has begun eating solid foods, with him saying: “Meghan says that Archie’s currently being weaned at the moment.
“He’s moving on to, or I guess at some point, moving on to solids.”
Mr Scobie got to chat with the former-royal chef to Prince Charles and Princess Diana, Carolyn Robb. She gave him a better look in the diet of the royal baby, saying that he will be having “organic, obviously.” She also emphasized that the meal were “seasonal and very simple.” Ms Robb claimed: “Everything is made fresh”. He continued with this point, saying that there were no pre-made pouches. She added: “There’s so much pre-made food available but I’m sure they would like doing everything themselves.”
Ms Robb recently opened up about her time working for the royal family back in the late 1980s and early 1990s. She revealed some details about Princess Diana’s eating habits while she was working at Kensington Palace, saying that Diana liked to pop in and help herself to the food. She added how the Princess of Wales liked to have “things a little more informal”.
Ms Robb said: “If Princess Diana was at home on her own in the evenings, she’d say: ‘Just leave a plate of food in the fridge for me’.”
The chef was employed by the Prince of Wales for eleven years. She said that the kitchen was a kind of “gathering place” for both family members and royal protection officers as they would often drop in and out.
An interesting fact about the royal eating habits was revealed by former royal servant Charles Oliver, who claims that the Queen and Prince Phillip have a little notebook which is brought to them with every meal. They use it so they can write down the immediate feedback they have about the meal to the chefs.
Mr Oliver wrote in his book ‘Dinner at Buckingham Palace’: “Mostly, the book remains blank, as the Queen is not fussy about food.”
There is one funny moment, he explains, in which the Queen left a scathing note to a chef after she had found a dead slug in her food. The Queen removed the offending creature from her meal, tore out a piece of paper from the book and laid it on top.
Mr Oliver said: “Once, on a torn-off top sheet the footmen found the dead body of a slug.”
Beside it, she wrote: “I found this in the salad—could you eat it?”
