MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Why is garlic off limits on all royal menus?

Lot of talk about the Royal Family this week after Meghan, Harry and Oprah’s big interview Sunday night. There are many unanswered questions about what goes on inside the palace walls. One that I have always wondered is the famous rule that garlic is off limits on all royal menus. Why?

According to a former royal chef who has done multiple interviews over the years, heĀ  admitted that Queen Elizabeth II knows exactly what she likes and doesn’t like. He says
She would never have garlic on the menu. She hated the smell of it, she hated the taste of it,” But all that flavor! They’re missing out on some great garlicky times over there.

One of the things she LOVES though is dark chocolate. I’m with her on that one. He also revealed that she eats Corn Flakes every morning. Yum.
