Revealed: The 1 Thing Kate Middleton Doesn’t Know About the Queen

The royal family is extremely close. After all, nobody knows what it’s like to live a life quite like that one, so the royals need to stick together. And there aren’t too many things they don’t know about each other. However, Kate Middleton recently spent the day with some young children, which prompted her to reveal one thing she doesn’t know about the queen.

Kate recently cooked pizzas with young children

Back in January, Kate met with several young children at King Henry’s Walk Garden. Kate helped prepare pizzas with the kids, which were then cooked in an outdoor oven. Everyone discussed how fun it is to learn outside. Plus, Kate was asked several questions about her own life while meeting with the kids. She revealed what her family loves to eat and said pizza was one of her favorite things to make. She also mentioned how much George and Charlotte love to cook; the kids prepare cheesy pasta and salads together all the time. Kate revealed that Charlotte’s favorite food is olives; she also revealed one thing she doesn’t know about the queen.

Kate revealed that she doesn’t know whether the queen has ever had pizza

While Kate was bonding with the children, one of them asked her whether the queen had ever tried pizza. It took Kate back a bit, not because it was a random question but rather because it was one to which she did not know the answer. “You know, that’s such a good question. I don’t know,” Kate said. “I don’t know. Maybe next time I see her, shall I ask?” It’s unclear whether Kate actually followed through and brought the question to the queen, but it probably made her stop and think for a moment.

The queen’s former chef said she ‘eats to live’ and was never much of a foodie

As surprising as it may seem to think there is someone in this world who has never tried pizza, the queen may actually be that someone. According to her former chef, who did an interview with The Telegraph, the queen is not very into food. “Sadly, the Queen is not a foodie,” the chef said. “She eats to live, unlike Prince Philip who loves to eat and would stand and talk food all day.” They say opposites attract, so it makes sense that the queen isn’t a big fan of food yet Philip is.

The queen has several strict rules for her dinner  

Besides likely never having tried pizza, there are other bizarre food-related things to know about the queen. She has several food rules, and one of those is she doesn’t like carb-filled foods. (This may explain why there was some doubt in Kate’s mind that the queen has tried pizza.) Queen Elizabeth feels that foods such as pasta and rice are too starchy, so she doesn’t like them to be on the menu. She also supposedly banned garlic from Kensington Palace, most likely for its strong smell and taste. And shrimp are off limits, too. It seems that she is a simple, clean eater.
