It’s well known that the Queen never leaves the house without her patent black Launer handbag, however, that isn’t the only thing Her Majesty can’t be without.
Former Royal Chef Darren McGrady, who cooked for the royal family for 15 years, has revealed that, much like the rest of us, the monarch is always careful to travel with a snack.
In an interview, McGrady revealed that the Queen always keeps her favourite chocolate biscuit cake close at hand.
The cake is regularly made at her home in Buckingham Palace, and Her Majesty enjoys a piece every day, according to the chef.
In fact, the queen is so fond of the pudding she takes a supply with her while travelling - for example if she is going to Windsor the monarch will ask for a senior chef to accompany the dessert on the train journey up.
And it isn’t just the Queen who is a fan of the chocolatey pudding, with both Prince William and Prince Harry also said to enjoy the snack.
Former chef to Prince Charles and Princess Diana Carolyn Robb revealed that she used to make the treat for the young princes.
Robb said: ’It was a firm favourite in the royal nursery; so much so that, many years later, Prince William chose to have chocolate biscuit cake at his wedding for the groom’s cake.
