When it comes to eating habits, the King Charles III (like all of us, after all) has its own. According to his former press officer Julian Payne, she has a “strict breakfast routine” regarding her plums. Are you curious to know what it is? According to former royal chef Darren McGrady, the ruler is a fan of this fruit and has a ritual dedicated to enjoying plums over breakfast.
In the documentary “Secrets of the Royal Kitchen”, chef Darren McGrady said he served King Charles III (who was still the Prince of Wales at the time) two plums poached with a drop of juice every morning. But strangely, one of the plums was always sent back. McGrady always kept the leftover plum in a jar. One day he thought it would be wiser to serve King Charles one plum instead of two because he would send one back anyway. He didn’t expect what would happen next. “Those present said, ‘His Royal Highness can he have two please?’” He recalled. McGrady resumed serving two plums.
King Charles III it is very important to the provenance of its plums. They are picked from his Highgrove garden because the monarch prefers organic produce. Moreover, his love for nature and his sensitivity to green issues is known. As part of her breakfast she likes muesli, a cup of tea with honey or a seasonal fruit salad. Since he skips lunch, breakfast is truly the most important meal of the day for him. “So, one of the first lessons I learned when I was traveling with him was to have a big breakfast or bring some snacks with me to get by for the day,” his former secretary told The Mirror, as Mashed reports. com.
