Prince William usually spends Easter with his family, at Windsor Castle, which usually consists of his wife Kate Middleton, his grandmother the Queen, and both cousins Princess Beatrice and Eugenie.
Usually, for Easter, families from the UK get together with their extended family for a big roast dinner, egg hunts around the garden, and the most important part, lots of chocolate. And the royal family is no different. The Queen is most often joined by her grandson Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, and his cousins, Princess Beatrice and Eugenie at Windsor Castle.
With them being unable to do this due to the ongoing crisis, they can still look back on all the loving memories they have from past Easters.
One memory, in particular, might not bring back warm feelings for Princess Beatrice and Eugenie, the time when Prince William played a rather cruel trick on them.
Former royal chef Darren McGrady reveals that one year when the younger royals were still kids, he decided to make a Hickory Dickory Dock nursery rhyme themed chocolate egg,
He told OK! magazine: “It had a clock on the top striking one and a sugared mouse peeking out of a mousehole.
“We sent it up to the nursery on the silver tray, but 15 minutes later the Footman brought it back.
“He said, ‘Nanny asked me to return this. Prince William has just stood on a chair and bitten the mouse’s head off, frightening Beatrice and Eugenie.'”
What a power move. Proud of my future king.
Darren had to quickly get back to work on making another mouse replace the one Prince William had destroyed. He said: “We had to quickly make another mouse, pop it in the hole and send it back to the nursery.
“I think Nanny put the egg out of William’s reach to make sure it didn’t happen again.”
The Royal Family’s Easter Sunday traditions are quite traditional, such as having a fish dinner on Good Friday. Then on Easter Sunday they all go to St George’s Chapel, where Prince Harry and Meghan had their wedding nuptials, for a tradition service before they head back for a four-course lunch.
Darren said: “We’d go straight into the main course – a traditional roast lamb with seasonal vegetables.
“The Queen likes her meat well done so she’d always have the first two slices. They’d also have a compound salad served in a kidney dish attached to the plate – just some lettuce and cucumber with a little mint or some grated carrot and coriander.”
