Princess Diana’s eating habits are more relaxed compared to Queen Elizabeth II, says a former royal chef.

Darren McGrady, who worked for Her Majesty for 11 years, shared what it was like cooking for the Princess of Wales and her two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry.

“When I moved to Princess Diana, it was much more relaxed. She would come to the kitchen all the time and bring the boys in. I held Prince Harry as a baby while Princess Diana was eating cereals in the kitchen,” he said (via Express).

One of Princess Diana’s favorite desserts is the bread and butter pudding, which featured bread, unsalted butter, and raisins soaked in Amaretto.

“This is Princess Diana’s favorite. And she would eat it in small portions,” he said.

Princess Diana’s youngest son, Prince Harry, loves curry. The Queen, on the other hand, is a huge fan of chocolate biscuit cake.

“Now the chocolate biscuit is the only cake that goes back, again and again, every day until it’s all gone. She’ll take a small slice every day until eventually there is only one tiny piece, but you have to send that up, she wants to finish the whole of that cake,” he said.

McGrady also described what it was like working for Her Majesty for 11 years straight.

“The first 11 years I was working with the Queen at Buckingham Palace and traveling around the world with her wherever she went to Sandringham, Windsor, Balmoral, the Royal Yacht Britannia, wherever it was in the world as well. It was the most incredible time that’s where I got to cook for all the different kings, queens, and presidents,” he said.

“Everything was so formal but it was a great experience in the sense that the food had to be amazing, everything had to be perfect. Everything was run to military precision,” he added.

McGrady worked for the royal family for a total of 15 years. He has also cooked for Presidents Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and more. He currently works as a chef, culinary consultant, event planner, and public speaker.
