According to Oliver, the queen and Prince Philip regularly eat their meals with notepads so they can send their suggestions back to the kitchen. This time, however, it was less of a suggestion and more of a threat.
“Once, on a torn-off top sheet the footmen found the dead body of a slug,” Charles wrote, adding that Queen Elizabeth wrote a small note next to the little body that read, “I found this in the salad—could you eat it?”
Talk about a royal burn.
“Mostly, the book remains blank, as the Queen is not fussy about food,” Charles added about the tiny dinner side notebook. “However, when she has a guest to an informal lunch and they reveal definite likes and dislikes—such as an objection to fried potatoes or Brussels sprouts—the queen will make a discreet note for future reference. This is duly recorded by the kitchen and remembered, should the guest come again.”
