Meghan’s life has changed completely since becoming Duchess of Sussex. From living life by her own rules, now she has to respect rules that royals go by.
There are a ton of royal family rules to follow. For example, she can’t take selfies anymore. She has to follow some rules about clothing also like she must wear tights etc.
However, there’s one surprising protocol that the Duchess of Sussex that she may don’t see coming.
Apparently, when Queen Elizabeth II is present, the Royals are not allowed to eat garlic.
According to Darren McGrady, Buckingham Palace chef, the Queen is not a fan of the ingredient. Considering the fact that it affects one’s breath, she has banned members of the family from consuming it at state banquets.
“We can never serve anything with garlic or too many onions. The Queen would never have garlic on the menu,” said royal chef Darren McGrady.
Even though it seems like an easy thing to do, for Meghan it is probably not. The Duchess is a big fan of garlic. Once she has revealed Today that she likes making Filipino-style chicken adobo for Sunday dinner. The meal features a clove or two.
On her now-defunct blog, The Tig, Meghan shared: “Growing up in LA, with its melting pot of vast and varied cultures, I was no stranger to the Filipino community. I can whip up a big pot of chicken adobo like it’s nobody’s business.”
The couple revealed in their engagement interview, that when Harry proposed they were roasting a chicken. And their roast chicken recipe also includes garlic. So, we doubt the Queen will be popping round for chicken.
“Just a cozy night,” Meghan interjected, “It was — what were we doing? Roasting chicken and —”
“Trying to roast a chicken,” Harry clarified.
“Trying to roast a chicken,” Meghan concurred. “And it was just — just an amazing surprise. It was so sweet and natural, and very romantic. He got down on one knee.”
