Everyone's obsessed with the Royal Family right now — from The Crown to Ryan Murphy's upcoming Charles-and-Diana season of Feud, we can't get enough of the British monarchy on our TV screens.

Their dietary habits may not be information you thought you needed in your life, but trust us: you do. We learned last week that Queen Elizabeth always travels with her favorite cake (also, is now our hero), but the monarch's former chef, Darren McGrady, has spilled even more deets on the family's diet.

He was rejected by his distant cousin Amidst his heartbreak over watching his beloved Camilla Shand marry Andrew Parker Bowles in 1973, Charles sought solace in the suggestion of his great-uncle Lord Dickie Mountbatten that he refocus his sights on Mountbatten's granddaughter, the 15-year-old Amanda Knatchbull.

Why Prince William and Kate's marriage is a sign of a modern monarchy Prince Harry's romance with Meghan Markle and Prince William's marriage to Kate would have been "inconceivable" if Prince Charles had not suffered trouble in his first marriage, according to the future King's biographer.
