Now that Meghan Markle is a member of Prince Harry’s family, the Duchess of Sussex is banned from eating garlic in public and the ingredient is forbidden from being put in any of the foods eaten by the Royals.
As well as this, Meghan is no longer permitted to travel abroad frequently or eat seafood, in order to avoid the risk of food poisoning, especially during an overseas tour.
The Queen is known to hate garlic and has none of it in her food. But why is Meghan Markle banned from eating garlic in public?
As reported in the Express, Meghan Markle is no longer permitted to having foods with garlic when eating abroad at state banquets and events to avoid bad breath.
Royal Chef at Buckingham Palace, Darren McGrady, said: ‘We can never serve anything with garlic or too much onions. The Queen would never have garlic on the menu.'
However, one of Meghan’s favourite dishes is Filipino-style chicken adobo, which contains the ingredient.
‘It's so easy - combine garlic, soy (or Bragg Liquid Aminos), vinegar, maybe some lemon and let the chicken swim in that sauce until it falls off the bone in a Crock Pot,’ she said to Today.
Meghan will be allowed to enjoy garlic in her meal when eating privately, however.
Ahead of her Royal Wedding, pornstar Simon Rex revealed that she had dumped him because he had garlic breath when they kissed at the end of their date.
However, the Scary Movie actor also said that Meghan may have found out about his foray in the adult movie industry.
'It’s possible that she found out afterwards. There’s so many questions I don’t know the answer to about why we never went on a second date.’
'But I’m blaming it on the garlic noodles. To this day that’s like an ongoing joke — don’t order the garlic noodles that ruined my chances,’ he said.
The new Royal will also have to say goodbye to seafood now that Meghan has to abide by the many strict guidelines. Royal Butler Grant Harrold explained that this is a sensible choice.
'We don't want a member of the Royal family having a serious reaction to food poisoning, especially if she is on an overseas tour. As well as shellfish, it would also be quite appropriate for foods such as foie gras to be avoided,’ he said.
