The Royal Family’s Diet Secrets Will Surprise You Guess who’s the “foodie?”

Princess Diana
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. Our daily dose of Prince George and Princess Charlotte cuteness doesn't hurt things either, but beyond the scandals, the fashion, and the history, the food is actually pretty interesting, too. 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. And given that he served the Queen for 11 years, you're going to want to hear what he has to say. Wh

Kate wants George – and later Charlotte – to have the same school experience that she did as a child

Prince George
Only last month, the Duchess of Cambridge told a fellow parent that she would "see them at the school gate," and it appears that Kate is keen to keep her word. The Duchess will take it in turns with her husband Prince William to do the school run when their son Prince George starts at Thomas's Battersea in September. The couple will continue to be hands-on parents, with the intention of dropping off and picking up George from school every day. The south-west London school is about a half-hour drive away from Kensington Palace. William, 34, and Kate, 35, could have chosen the Kensington sister branch of Thomas's but they are believed to have been drawn to the "village" feel Battersea provides. Like fellow parents, they will face the London rush hour and not make use of a police escort, w...

Duchess Catherine
Prince Charles and Princess Diana‘s seemingly fairytale beginnings was anything but, and now a new book claims the royal hoped he would “learn to love” his future wife, Princess Diana, when he decided to propose. Charles wed Diana in July 1981 in a lavish royal ceremony after a whirlwind courtship that started barely a year earlier. Astonishingly, the couple only had around 12 dates between the summer of 1980 and when he popped the question in February 1981, according to Sally Bedell Smith, the author of the biography, Prince Charles: The Passions and Paradoxes of an Improbable Life. Diana immediately accepted his proposal and Charles thought that he could make the union work. “He was obviously anguished, and he said she was someone I could learn to love,” Bedell Smith tells PEOPLE. “

Prince George
From the moment they welcomed their first son Prince George into the world, Prince William and Kate made it clear that they would be modern, hands-on parents. The couple have carved their own paths as 21st century royals, while also bearing in mind the importance of royal tradition. William and Kate have taken decisions that suit both them and their young children, but also William's grandmother the Queen. When it comes to parenting, they have done things their way, but have been mindful to keep within the boundaries of royal expectation. The first sign that Prince George and Princess Charlotte's upbringing would be slightly different to their dad William's was at their birth. In keeping with tradition, Kate chose to follow in other royal mums' footsteps by having her children at the ex...
