Kate Middleton Had The Best Reaction When A Child Asked If The Queen Eats Pizza

The answer is rather surprising

Being a mother-of-three young children, one can only assume Kate Middleton has become an expert at answering all sorts of questions.

The Duchess of Cambridge put those skills to the test visiting King Henry’s Walk Garden in Islington on January 15.

As the royal, 37, helped prepare pizzas to be made in the outdoor oven, one little girl wasn’t afraid to ask the big questions.

“Has the Queen ever had pizza?” 8-year-old Nadirah inquired, according to People.

Kate was stumped.

“You know, that’s such a good question. I don’t know,” the royal responded. “I don’t know. Maybe next time I see her, shall I ask?”

Darren McGrady, who previously served as a personal chef to the 92-year-old monarch, told the Telegraph that Her Majesty sticks to a strict diet and isn’t one to experiment with different flavours. 

“Sadly, the Queen is not a foodie,” he said. “She eats to live, unlike Prince Philip who loves to eat and would stand and talk food all day.”

He added, “No starch is the rule. No potatoes, rice or pasta for dinner. Just usually something like grilled sole with vegetables and salad.”

On Tuesday’s visit, Kate met with volunteers to discuss the benefits of the urban green space. 

She toured the allotment plots to see the impact that can be achieved in small gardens. The royal also took part in a winter planting workshop, bird box building and pizza making in the garden’s kitchen area.

“George and Charlotte would love to be learning outside the classroom,” Kate said of her two eldest children. “It’s still fun inside, but it’s much better outside.” 

She also admitted that her children would be jealous to find out that she spent the day making pizzas while they were in school.
