They may have every cuisine under the sun at the tips of their fingers, but now it’s been revealed the royals have some very simple earing habits.

According to a former Buckingham Palace chef, the British family prefer to shun gourmet cuisine and indulge in Kellogg’s cereal and McDonald’s.

Darren McGrady, who used to work as a chef in the palace for 11 years, said the Queen is a big fan of dark chocolate, cereal and refuses to eat garlic.

Speaking to Marie Claire magazine, McGrady said the Queen used to shun expensive bowls and instead used to eat her cereal out of tupperware containers.

After serving the Quen, McGrady went on to make meals for Princess Diana, who he claims was a spontaneous mom.

"I remember the Princess came into the kitchen one day and said, 'Cancel lunch for the boys I'm taking them out, we're going to McDonald's. And I said, 'Oh my god your royal highness, I can do that, I can do burgers.' And she said, 'No, it's the toy they want’,” he said.

Prince William and Prince Harry are reportedly big fans of fast food chain McDonalds and going out for pizza.

He also revealed that the Princess had a very strict post-bulimia diet and would never eat red meat.

Instead she lived off fish and stuffed vegetables.
