Queen Elizabeth has reportedly banned royals from eating garlic a long time ago. It was learned that she is also not too fond of anyone from the royal family using the ingredient in their kitchen.
Darren McGrady – former Buckingham Palace kitchen chef- who confirmed the rumours said:
“Queen believed when she was brought up that you don’t eat garlic because if you were holding an audience the next day, you didn’t want to be breathing garlic. It was seen as an antisocial.”
This has now been confirmed by the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla Parker Bowles who earlier this month appeared on the Australian Masterchef and was quizzed about what the royals can and can’t eat. “I hate to say this, but garlic. Garlic is a no-no,” Bowles say’s.
Masterchef judge Gary Mehigan then asked the Dutchess if the garlic ban was because it could cause bad breath and she agreed it was the reason:
“Yes, exactly…so you always have to lay off the garlic.”
