What Kate Middleton and Prince William Avoid on Royal Tours

Because the British royals can seem almost impossibly perfect—no strand of hair or piece of fabric out of place—it can be hard sometimes to imagine them dealing with any sort of actual earthly concern. Does Kate Middleton ever get a headache? Does Prince Harry ever accidentally spill ketchup on his shirt? They must, though how can we really know!??!

A new report, per OK! Magazine (via Elle U.K.), reminds us though that the royals must eat and drink and consider bodily functions and scents and all of that stuff, too. When they are on trips overseas, the royals reportedly avoid . . . shellfish. Sure, that makes some sense—we might avoid shellfish, too, if we knew we were going to have to make seven different appearances at which we were going to be extensively photographed the next day in an unfamiliar country. Additionally, Kate and William and the rest avoid rare meat, tap water, and garlic when they are on their out-of-town voyages.

Carolyn Robb, a Kensington Palace chef who worked with the royal family in the days of Princess Diana, told the magazine that the reason for this is, well, basically what you’d expect: “The reason . . . was that they obviously did a lot of public engagements and were in close proximity to people and never wanted to have garlic.”

However, while the Queen—who we know is very strict when it comes to her eating and drinking habits—reportedly avoids these foods diligently, it is said that Kate and William and the other younger royals do make exceptions here and there. So if you’re an Australian who has been spending months devising the perfect garlic-encrusted crab dish for the next time Kate and William visit, do not lose hope! There is still a small sliver of a chance they’ll give it a taste.

For her arrival in Berlin, Kate went with one of her favorite designers, Catherine Walker. (And she has a great kind of “shades of blue” matching thing going on with Charlotte.)
