Meghan Markle is "completely normal," according to a journalist who enjoyed a meal with the Duchess of Sussex.

Bryony Gordon had the opportunity to have lunch with the new royal she revealed on Monday's episode of ITV's "Loose Women." According to the journalist she was surprised after Markle agreed to go to a restaurant. Gordon described Prince Harry's wife as "completely normal."

While they were enjoying their meal, Gordon added that Markle offered to share her food. "She offered me some of her monkfish," she said.

"She is beautiful, graceful, lovely," Gordon said about the former "Suits" actress. "We spoke about yoga, she loves running."

Markle loves seafood but has to turn it down when on public duties. According to Grant Harrold, a former royal butler, the royal family are not allowed to eat seafood to avoid possible food poisoning.

"It is a very sensible move to abandon having seafood when out and about on public duties. We don’t want a member of the royal family having a serious reaction to food poisoning especially if she is on an overseas tour," Harrold told Express.

After joining "the Firm", Markle has been prohibited from eating garlic too. According to Darren McGrady, a royal chef at Buckingham Palace, the queen doesn't like garlic.

"We can never serve anything with garlic or too much onions. The Queen would never have garlic on the menu," McGrady said.

Markle's go-to meal on set is a season veggie quinoa that includes garlic on its ingredients. "At the start of each week, I generally cook a box of quinoa, and while it's simmering, I saute onions, garlic and any veggies I have on hand in a separate pan," the duchess said.

Meanwhile, back in April 2017, Gordon interviewed Prince Harry for her podcast Mad World. She described her encounter with the Duke of Sussex as something like "chatting with a mate on the sofa with a cup of tea."

Gordon also opened up about Kate Middleton recently. According to her, the Duchess of Cambridge is banned from running marathons.

"Oh no, security and all that," Middleton told her why she doesn't join public races.

However, the author of "Eat, Drink, Run" still encouraged the royal mom of three to try it. "If I can do the marathon, you can," she said.
