“Yes, sometimes… but at Balmoral she’d eat fruit from a plastic yellow Tupperware container.” He also revealed that she’d usually have a “simple” breakfast of Kellogg’s cereal from a plastic container, along with a cup of Darjeeling tea.
Likewise, people ask, does Elizabeth use Tupperware?
The Queen uses tupperware
That’s right — while Her Majesty has been known to eat off diamond-encrusted or solid gold plates, she also totally gets the practicality of tupperware. “At Balmoral she’d eat fruit from a plastic yellow tupperware container,” said McGrady.
Just so, does the queen ever eat out?
Yes, the Queen gets the occasional takeaway! According to The Sun, the monarch is rather partial to fish and chips and sometimes treats herself to dinner from the local chippy when staying at Balmoral. A footman is reportedly sent to pick up her meal from nearby town Ballater.
Does the Queen have a sweet tooth?
The Queen is partial to chocolate biscuit cake and is thought to snack on a small piece each day. This means that wherever she goes, the cake tin comes too! “I used to travel on the train from London to Windsor Castle with the biscuit cake in a tin on my knee. It was half eaten”, Darren told The Huffington Post.
Her majesty’s former chef Darren McGrady spoke of the monarch’s breakfast preferences to The Telegraph back in 2015, revealing that she likes cereal, usually Special K, with fruit. Special K is made by Kellogg’s and is a combination of crunchy rice, wheat and barley flakes. WATCH: The Queen’s favourite foods!
The Queen of thrift
Growing up during the Great Depression and the Second World War left Queen Elizabeth II with a “make do and mend” attitude. Whether it’s taking the train, re-wearing an outfit or turning off the central heating, Her Majesty shows that it’s possible to be thrifty and still live like a queen.
Forbes magazine estimated the Queen’s net worth at around $500 million (about £325 million) in 2011, while an analysis by the Bloomberg Billionaires Index put it at $425 million (about £275 million) in 2015.
House and Garden reported that the Queen starts her day with Earl Grey tea – minus milk and sugar – and a side of biscuits alongside her corgis. She then takes her main breakfast in her private dining room in Buckingham Palace; cereal, yoghurt, toast and marmalade are said to be the mother-of-four’s favourites.
The royals make concerted efforts to avoid eating shellfish while dining out or visiting foreign countries since it can carry a greater-than-normal risk of causing infection and illness. They usually stay clear of prawns, oysters, crab, lobster, scallops, crayfish and others.
The Queen wakes from her slumber each morning at 7:30 am. She stays in bed for a few minutes, listening to the “Today” program on BBC Radio 4.
And, like us common folk, the Queen also enjoys her breakfast cereal. “Breakfast was very simple for Her Majesty. Some Kellogg’s cereal from a plastic container, which she’d serve herself.
