While he explained that the late Princess “wasn’t a big drinker”, she did fancy herself a tipple of Chardonnay here and there.
“Puligny Montrachet was the wine we served the most at Kensington Palace,” he told the publication. And while she occasionally reached for that Chardonnay in particular, she steered clear of champagne, red wine and cocktails.
“I remember in the kitchen one day she came in, and there was an event going on. She was talking about the drinks and said ‘I can’t take champagne, it just gives me the giggles so I have to stay away from it’,” McGrady recalled.
“She also couldn’t drink red wine as it gave her the most awful headache, and Diana would stay away from cocktails—they would zap her out completely,” he added.
And while alcohol wasn’t a treat that Diana typically reached for, she did enjoy snacking on Cadbury’s Twirl chocolate bars, lychee fruit and cheese.
“I would keep a bowl of lychee fruit in the kitchen all the time. Diana would come in, pull up a chair and just chat while eating fruit and cheese like a squirrel,” McGrady explained, adding, “she would leave the kitchen covered in shells and stones.”
There you have it, Diana's favourite snacks are not only relatable, but eating like the late Princess is as easy as a trip to your local supermarket.
