Royal cuisine

Prince Bertil of Sweden composed Crêpes á la prins Bertil, crêpes filled with Hollandaise sauce mixed with shrimps and dill, and then gratined, and served as a starter dish. The prince was interested in cooking and had taken lessons at the Cordon bleu cooking school in Paris in the 1930ies.

Are there other royals with an interest in cooking? What royals have given name to or inspired chefs to create dishes?

As you all know, Prince Charles grows organic food and presumably eats it. More than that I don't know about his diet.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was said to be eating a moderately high protein, low carb and low saturated fat diet, prior to pregnancy, to maintain her svelte figure.

I heard Princess Anne would rather cook the meal herself than have someone else do it for her.

I know that Queen Sofia of Spain has her cooking maids make healthy food for meals everyday, mostly vegetables, salads, fish... though the King doesn't like much that food and appreciates a good pork beef, fried potatos, etc... but can't eat that at home. (I saw that on a TV program)

According to this site:
http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandsty...e-rachel-cooke

The Prince of Wales was so fussy about his soft-boiled eggs that his staff would prepare up to seven for him every morning in the hope that at least one would be done to perfection. Charles's private chef during his first marriage, revealed that the prince's security detail would inform the kitchen as soon as HRH was on his way home for tea. "His eggs had to be boiled for exactly four minutes".
QEII favours brown eggs, believing that they taste better. Her great-great grandmother, Queen Victoria, ate her boiled egg, served in a golden egg cup, with a golden spoon.
Queen Victoria, who was convinced that "things taste better in smaller houses", favoured plain food. At home, she favoured pies and invalid soups – pearl barley or potato – washed down with her favourite drink, a mixture of claret and whisky.
The Duke of Edinburgh is said to be obsessed with barbecuing in quiet corners of his wife's estates.

More interesting stories about other British royals in that link.

Does NApolean count? Chicken MArengo was create for him with "available rations" prior to the battle of Marengo - chicken, herbs, wine and tomatoes are the main ingredients.

If you are interested in food that the BRF like here is a link to an article by the Queen's former chef.

Also, Princess Anne doesn't drink and hates celery. She also doesn't eat anything too rich in flavour. I read in a book about her that one time she had a sip of something (I forget what, some kind of spirit), and immediately blew into a breathalyzer, sending the meter soaring. She then pretended to be drunk and collapsed into a chair. A few minutes later she took it again and it was almost nullified.

Marie biscuits were named after the Grand Duchess Marie of Russia, the wife of Prince Alfred, Queen Victoria's son.

Both Prince William and Prince Henry have cooked for others while they were in Africa during their gap year.

lol. She's got some little legs on her. She's pretty fit. She's had children and her middle is no worse the wear for it, she kind of has a pear shape, but it doesn't look bad. I do wonder what she eats, she is possibly vegan or vegetarian with a taste for the pasta. She had that girl next door look, everyone's best friend look to her when she was younger, real sporty, smart looking. Looking at her now, her personality seems real fitting for a royal. She is old enough to be slim like she is and it doesn't look disorderly. Oh lol, this is just great. Britain's Princess Anne On Eating Horse Meat: 'I Think It Needs A Debate' and

Horse meat. French attitude towards horse meat is foreign to me.

Perhaps, her diet is an ecological friendly balance of the normal life cycle with a dash of seasoning and a side of meal worms with crickets on the side to accompany a spot of nag. Or not.

lol. Now I read about Elizabeth's left hook and Margret's being known for her bite and the intellectual curiosity between the two as children. With Margret's history with alcohol, abruptly quitting smoking, being agreeable with a sharp tongue liking to play the piano it is no wonder Princess Anne is really insistent about family boundaries.

I can understand being annoyed by alcoholics and just wanting them to hush, quit drinking and remember how horrid cigarettes smelled and how much wanting them to quit smoking impacted me. The thing is I also know how easy it is to light a smoke and take a drink to try and bond with a parental figure that was just so withdrawn as an adult to try and ease their depression about the things they may of done that upset me as a child, like drinking and smoking, too. I personally do not drink alcohol, either.

Princess Anne had to take on more duties when Margret had to have some time to rest in 1985. It is easy to see why those boundaries about family and public are so strong with her, she grew up in a time where alcohol was a significant impact in her part of her family and so was smoking. She knows first hand what happens medically to someone when someone smokes and drinks.

But that one time drinking and taking a breathalyzer could of been enough to create an addiction, apparently according to the book, I haven't read, she didn't. She is either geriatric or close to being and alcohol is bad for people over a certain age. Newer health story about it. Alcohol Consumption Linked to Heart Damage in Elderly Heart damage can result.

So celery, is it, how about that, she doesn't like celery. lol.

Now it starts by talking about Prince Charles and his eggs in this one bit I am reading.

Really when it comes down to what Royals eat, it's all about longevity, especially when associating England Royals, I am only curious about what they eat because they do age gracefully and really do seem to be the epitome of health.

Sure we read about how the Royals feel about their food, but really it is about health with them, look how healthy they are. There was a story about how the officers in one of the palaces were eating up the Queen's snack bowl hors d' oeuvre, lol, why do you think that is? Nutrition. Plain and simple. Look how big boned literally big boned the men are and tall in the Royal Family. They didn't just get that way eating salad. Look how strong the women of the family are. They don't stay that way just eating beans and rice.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...d_after_people

specifically: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fillet..._Prince_Albert
Fillet of Beef Prince AlbertQueen Victoria's Consort Prince Albert (1819–1861). Also named for him: an English white sauce, the pea and apple varieties, Coburg Soup (brussels sprouts and smoked bacon) and probably Albert Pudding.

another one: Christian IX cheese – honoring King Christian IX of Denmark (1818–1906), this is a caraway-seeded semi-firm Danish cheese.

Neither of which I can say I have tried.

lol!!

Queen Mother's Cake – in the 1950s, Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother (1901–2002) was served this flourless chocolate cake by her friend Jan Smeterlin (1892–1967), well-known Polish pianist. Smeterlin had acquired the recipe in Austria, and the Queen Mother's fondness for the cake produced its name, via either Smeterlin, food writer Clementine Paddleford or dessert maven Maida Heatter.



Prince William Cider Apple – Created to celebrate the 21st birthday of Prince William. It was named the "Prince William" after he said in an interview that he was a cider drinker. Large, robust yet mild in nature with a red flush and will make a cider of fair complexion, well balanced with much character. The "Prince William" will be the first of more than 360 varieties of traditional English cider apples grown over the centuries to be given a royal name.


  • Crepes Suzette – said to have been created for then-Prince of Wales Edward VII on 31 January 1896, at the Café de Paris in Monte Carlo. When the prince ordered a special dessert for himself and a young female companion, Henri Charpentier, then 16 (1880–1961), produced the flaming crepe dish. Edward reportedly asked that the dessert be named after his companion (Suzette) rather than himself. However, Larousse disputes Charpentier's claim.
I can't find any recipes on Prince Henry. So Prince William drinks cider, that is an alcoholic beverage.


How does that old historical saying go? Was it, let them eat cake? http://www.history.com/news/ask-hist...-them-eat-cake
