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.
