While we wait on pins and needles for Kate and William’s first child to be born, pretty much every baby question has been answered — even what the little royal will eat!
Chef Darren McGrady was a Kensington Palace chef who cooked for Queen Elizabeth II for 11 years and Princess Diana, Prince William, and Prince Harry for four more. And if Kate Middleton’s child is anything like her husband, then Darren has a pretty good idea of what the most popular dishes in the palace will be.

“William and Harry were royal princes but they had children’s palates,” Darren told Us Weekly. The chef reveals that the boys loved sweets and simple, down-home meals:
They loved the nursery foods, they loved the comfort foods that their parents had too. Dishes like the English Cottage Pie was one of Prince William’s real favorites…the same thing with banana flan.

But if Kate’s baby’s appetite is anything like William’s was as a child, there’s one dish in particular that will be most popular at Kensington Palace — pizza! Darren has a hilarious story about how the boys tried to swindle him into making them a pie:
I remember one time coming back to work in the evening with plans to roast a chicken with broccoli and cabbage and potatoes for the nursery dinner for William and Harry, and there was a note on the table saying, “Darren, cancel the chicken and broccoli and cabbage tonight and give the boys pizza please,” but it was written by a 7-year-old! It was the boys’ attempt to try and sway me!
But before the newest member of the royal family can start loving pizza, Darren says that the baby will be fed a series of fresh purees: “There won’t be any sign of any Gerber or any Heinz baby foods, it’ll all be fresh foods.”
Only the best for Kate and William’s baby. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
