Darren McGrady, former royal chef, confirmed the Queen is “absolutely a chocoholic.”  The royal chef explained: “Anything we put on the menu that had chocolate on, she [the Queen] would pick off the menu.”

However, the sweet tooth does not run in the family as reportedly Prince Charles cannot stand eating chocolate.

Graham Tinsley MBE, former manager of the Welsh Culinary Team, noticed Prince Charles’ eating habits first hand as he led his team of culinary experts.

Speaking exclusively to HELLO!, the former royal chef spoke about his time catering for the Royal Family.

He said: “Prince Charles doesn’t like chocolate, he doesn’t like coffee, nor does he like garlic. So we do have to consider these things when we’re creating a menu for him.”

The Prince of Wales reportedly eats a light breakfast which is then followed by one main meal at dinner.

Charles is also said to eat the same breakfast every single day.

According to royal author Sally Bedell Smith, the Prince of Wales eats specially mixed wheat germ and cereal grains with honey. This is usually followed by fruit and tea.

The Prince’s eating habits were even discussed in the latest series of The Crown.

On Prince Charles’ website for his 70th birthday he confirmed he doesn’t eat at lunchtime, with the line: “The Prince does not eat lunch.”

Gordon Rayner told The Telegraph: “Lunch is seen as a luxury that gets in the way of his work, so he eats a late breakfast and works through.

“I found this out the hard way, by going hungry when I started covering royal tours and watching enviously as his long-suffering staff produced snacks from pockets so they could eat on the go.”

Speaking to the BBC, Charles explained: “For years I haven’t eaten meat and fish on two days a week and I don’t eat dairy products on one day a week.

“Now I mean that’s one way to do it – if more did that you would reduce a lot of the pressure on the environment and everything else.

“Because you see the thing about meat is very important – where does it come from, how is it grown?”

In 1990, he established Duchy Originals, a brand through which to sell organic produce grown at Highgrove.

Years later, the brand went mainstream — his products now being sold at the upmarket chain, Waitrose.
