It's True: Rumor That Royals Aren't Allowed To Eat Garlic Confirmed By Camilla, Duchess Of Cornwall


Finally, Camilla Parker Bowles, the Duchess of Cornwall, revealed the truth behind garlic, allegedly something that cannot be eaten by the royal family including Meghan Markle.

News surrounding everybody's beloved garlic started circulating in June, just as news articles about the newly minted Duchess of Sussex being a foodie were re-earthed. People started to get worried for Markle, who might still be trying to fit in the royal family, as she has a lot of royal protocols to follow.

Logical Reason

At first glance, royals prohibited from eating garlic sounds unreasonable, which underlines the many eyebrow-raising strict rules to be adhered by them. It may make one rethink wishes of becoming a part of the influential monarchs, especially since there are a lot of no-nos.

However, as much as banning garlic is unusual, it does have a logical explanation to it. Prince Charles' wife confirmed during her guest stint at the MasterChef Australia that the said rule was legit, and there's no denying that.

"I hate to say this, but garlic. Garlic is a no-no," she downright said.

Apparently, garlics are never seen in royal events because, as anybody would have guessed, it has something to do with meeting and talking to hundreds of people. Admit it, while it is an essential element in making dishes delicious, it has the capacity to make anyone's breath stink.

Just imagine talking to the former Suits actress and she has bad breath, and one may just remember her for that: a royalty that has poor oral hygiene. Of course, the royal family has a lot of things on their plate most times (no pun intended), and they probably don't need another ridiculous news about their breath.

Come to think of it, the garlic protocol may just be a safer move for the royals. Moreover, Queen Elizabeth II was reportedly not a fan of it, as per the account of the chef at the Buckingham Palace.

"The Queen would never have garlic on the menu," chef Darren McGrady revealed, and added that dishes shouldn't have too much onions as well.

The garlic issue is finally laid to rest, and is just one of the most unusual rules of the royal family. Another one is that colorful, bright, and popping nail polishes are a no-no.

Queen Elizabeth is reportedly a fan of Essie's Ballet Slippers shade and not of bright fluorescent ones, not even the classic red. She reportedly opts for nude and neutral, so other royals may want to stick with the 92-year-old's preference.
