Afternoon Tea Is Reportedly the Queen's Favorite Meal

Per McGrady, her favorite meal isn't breakfast, lunch, or dinner, but an in-between meal. "The Queen had afternoon tea every day, wherever she was in the world. If we were at Buckingham Palace and she was on her own for tea, or whether she had Prince William come and join her, or whether she had a garden party for 6000 people or even if she was on the Royal Britannia in Australia," the chef dished. "The Queen loved afternoon tea, I would say it's probably one of her favourite meals. Certainly, when I was there, she would sit down religiously for tea."

She Also Reportedly Likes Cereal for Breakfast

In case you are curious what other meals the Queen enjoys, her former chefs have revealed many details over the years. The Telegraph reports that Her Majesty enjoys cereal and fruit for breakfast. Her favorites? Kellogg's, Quaker Oats, Weetabix, and Special K, per McGrady.

She Reportedly Eats a Simple Lunch

For lunch the Queen generally pairs a protein with a carb. McGrady told The Telegraph that grilled Dover sole or Scottish salmon paired with spinach and zucchini is a go-to lunch. She also might eat a salad with grilled chicken.  "When she dines on her own, she's very disciplined," McGrady said, per Bustle, "No starch is the rule." ​​

Chocolate Is Reportedly Her Guilty Pleasure

Her guilty pleasure? Chocolate, "she loves it," McGrady told The Telegraph. Chocolate biscuit cake, chocolate mousse, and chocolate ganache sponge cake are a few of her go-to. She really loves dark chocolate, McGrady told Reader's Digest. "She's not a big fan of milk or white chocolate," he added. 


She Reportedly Eats a Meaty Dinner

The Queen is most definitely a carnivore. For dinner she usually dines on beef, venison, pheasant, or salmon, all sourced locally from farms in Sandringham and Balmoral.
