Camilla Parker Bowles Has to Eat This Food Every Single Day for a Tragic Reason

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and her husband, Prince Charles, are known for having some pretty high-maintenance food requests and demands. The royal couple sends notes to their hosts when they travel abroad about what they would like to eat and prefer not to eat during a dinner party. They even have food shipped to their location to ensure it’s organic. And at home, the Prince of Wales’ staff wastes over three dozen eggs a week just to get one right for his breakfast each day.

But there is something Camilla makes sure she eats every day in order to avoid what she witnessed with her mother and grandmother years ago. Find out which food the duchess incorporates in her daily diet so what happened to them doesn’t happen to her.

What Camilla’s daily diet includes

Camilla has spoken about her diet in the past and explained that she tries to eat as many good fats as possible for lunch including avocados, fish, and almonds. For dinner, the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall have some type of meat which could be anything from lamb to roast chicken to steak from the local butcher.

Prince Charles and his wife love eating eggs for breakfast. They even keep their own chickens at their Highgrove residence and as Hello! Magazine noted, the duchess’s son, Tom Parker Bowles, said that his mother “is a huge fan of scrambled eggs.” 

But there is another thing Camilla makes sure to incorporate into her meals on a daily basis.

In addition to proteins, Camilla always includes dairy in her daily diet for a specific reason. Her dairy intake can come from a number of sources and according to her son, one way is in a dish she loves to make.

In his cookbook Let’s Eat, Tom revealed the recipe for his mom’s baked eggs.

“This is one of my mother’s ‘signature’ dishes, although she’d be perplexed as to what a ‘signature’ dish is,” he wrote. “When we used to arrive home, late, from holiday, the house would be cold and dark, the fridge bare. But my sister and I would collect the eggs, and my mother would break them into ramekins, [splash] in a little cream from the top of the milk bottle and dot with butter.”

The duchess and future king are known to be fond of cheesy baked eggs as well, which of course adds more dairy to the meal. So just why is it so important for Camilla to consume dairy products?

The Duchess of Cornwall became the President of the Royal Osteoporosis Society in 2001. She has worked tirelessly with the organization for years after her grandmother and mother both died as a result of the condition in which bones become weak and brittle.

Camilla has been candid about what her mom, Rosiland Shand, went through and the pain she was in before she passed in 1994 as well as what her own children had to see.

“They worshipped her,” Camilla said (per The Express) of how her two kids felt about their grandmother. “Suddenly they saw this tiny woman stooped in agony. It is something they will remember for the rest of their lives. But people who haven’t seen their parents or grandparents like that will think: ‘We’re never going to get that.’ It’s the immediacy of youth.”

The duchess also warned people against fad dieting saying it’s “the worst thing to do…cutting out dairy and all the things that are good for your bones.”
