As a former royal cook, I can tell you that the Queen’s food is always X-RAYED before she consumes it at feasts.

You don’t have to be a royal expert to realize that throwing a state banquet takes a LOT of time and effort.

The Palace must not only perfect the all-important guest list, but also put on a spread worthy for a Queen.

But there’s one thing we hadn’t considered: the security procedures that must be taken while hosting some of the world’s most powerful people.

Former royal chef Graham Tinsley described to Hello! how security is routinely stepped up before of a feast.

For royal engagements in Wales, a satellite kitchen was generally set up in the grounds of Caerphilly Castle, and food was then transported to the hall by foot, according to the expert.

When prominent heads of state were in attendance, however, everything changed, and catering personnel were granted a police escort to the venue.


And, just to be cautious, everything the caterers were holding had to be signed off as well.

“For higher-level banquets, we’re required to run all of our food, containers, cutlery, and kitchen equipment through an X-ray machine before being driven inside the castle on motorbikes,” Graham explained.

Day-to-day dining in royal houses is, of course, far more casual.

Another former royal chef, Darren McGrady, explained how he would deceive The Queen into choosing Princess Diana’s favorite pudding in his most recent YouTube video.

He stated, ” “I always recommended two desserts for the menu: one that Diana liked and one that the Queen didn’t, so I knew the Queen would choose the Bread and Butter Creme souffle.

“It always worked, and the Princess received it whenever she went to see the Queen.

I had to keep the chefs from diving into the tray when it returned to the kitchen, so I put it in the warmer and waited.”

Ex-royal worker Darren said in an interview with Marie Claire that Her Majesty is quite down-to-earth about how her dishes are served.

“People usually remark, ‘Oh, the Queen must dine off gold plates with gold knives and forks,'” the cook explained.

Yes, on occasion… She ate fruit from a plastic yellow Tupperware container at Balmoral, however.” In other Royal Family news, Kate Middleton revealed a rare look inside her everyday luggage, and it’s shockingly ordinary.

And the Queen’s granddaughter is expected to turn down the opportunity to become a working royal.

During her COP26 speech, the Queen also delivered a charming hidden gesture in honor of loving Prince Philip, according to a royal expert.
