The Queen refused to eat potatoes, rice and pasta

The late Queen of Great Britain  Elizabeth II was selective about the food she was served. The ruler tried to eat a minimum of carbohydrates and warned other family members against it.

Former Buckingham Palace chef Darren McGrady told the Express about Her Majesty's preferences and the foods she asked not to use in her dishes. According to him, the Queen "ate to live", unlike her husband, Prince Philip, who "loved delicious food and could talk about food all day".

Darren McGrady revealed that Elizabeth II was against potatoes on the table and urged all family members to give them up. She also disapproved of rice and pasta.

Her Majesty avoided large amounts of carbohydrates, so these products never appeared on the evening menu.

"When she ate alone, she was very disciplined. No starch was the rule," said the chef, who was responsible for the royal family's meals from 1982 to 1993.

According to him, the monarch preferred grilled fish or meat with vegetables or salad. The ruler also liked to eat chocolate, although she was picky about sweets.
