THE Queen has 20 cooks who travel around the country with her, according to former royal chef Darren McGrady.
Darren hosted a Q&A session on his YouTube channel, for fans to find out what really goes on behind palace doors, and gave the insight about her staff.
A fan asked Darren how many people worked in the royal kitchens on a daily basis.
The culinary professional answered in the video: “When I worked at the palace, the Queen had 20 chefs in the kitchen.
“They were needed because they travel all around the country to the different residences and all over the world too.”
The fan also asked whether Her Majesty, 94, has a royal menu to choose from at Buckingham Palace.
Darren, who worked for the royals for 15 years, answered: “Yes the Queen had a menu, the chefs would suggest the food and the Queen would select what she wanted each day.”
Previously, Darren also lifted the lid on The Queen’s eating habits.
He said she avoids pasta, potatoes or garlic at dinner – unless she is at a state banquet.
Instead she prefers healthy, low-carb plates featuring grilled fish or chicken with veg and salad.
Darren said: “We can never serve anything with garlic or too much onions.
“We also couldn't serve meat that was rare, as she liked her meat more well done.”
Despite her healthy diet she does indulge in the occasional treat and loves a chocolate biscuit cake baked by her chefs.
Darren previously shared how the Queen’s corgis had their own ‘a la carte menu’.
We shared how the Queen may never return to royal duties as she won’t be safe in public ‘for years’ due to coronavirus.
