This is very interesting with regards to official banquets or dinner galas that royals so often times need to attend and where multiple courses of menus are served with all sorts of food. I am wondering whether the cooks are always informed in advance on the special eating preferences of the royals so that for example vegetarians get a special treat.

There was an interview published some time ago where Queen Sophia was talking about the rudeness of the late king Hassan II of Morocco. Whenever this king visited Spain, he would bring his own food and cooks probably because he didn't trust his hosts. On the other hand, Her Majesty described how during a visit to Morocco, Hassan II intentionally served food filled with meat despite knowing about Queen Sophia's vegetarianism.

Infanta Cristina is a vegetarian. When Juan Carlos and Sofia visited President Bush at his ranch, he served a real Texas meal with lots of meat. Oops!

I know for sure that when state visits are organised (months in advance) that details such as what will be eaten etc at all the banquets and things will have been worked out in advance.

My partner eats no fish or meat and so I do sympathise with you about the problems in restaurants. Although most restaurants that I know of have a vegetarian option, it's usually just one option and he hates eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes and peanuts so he often has had to have just a salad and side order of chips/French fries. From experience I'm not sure the U.S., Spain or France are reknowned for their vegetarian cuisine and so I only hope that Queen Sofia manages to find something good to eat!
