Queen Elizabeth II news: Queen’s favourite in-flight meal revealed | Royal | News

According to Graham Laurie, the Queen and other members of the Royal Family would happily tuck into Fray Bentos tinned pies during their journey. Appearing on a Channel 5 documentary the pilot said: “Do you know, they used to love it. “I think it’s such a lovely change from all that fancy food which comes in first class!”

At £2.50 a pie, members of the Royal family may have saved some money on their meals compared to the hefty fees that come with first class.

The pilot did not reveal which flavour the Queen and her family preferred.

The iconic British brand is famous for its steak and kidney, minced beef and onion and chicken and bacon pies.

The Fray Bentos brand was founded in 1865 and is named after a cow-rearing city in Uruguay.

Pies became a staple part of British homes after WWII and the brand moved their manufacturer to Hackney.

They are now located round the corner from the Queen’s Sandringham home in King’s Lynn, Norfolk.

The Queen have never revealed her favourite meal but this latest revelation means it could be a Fray Bentos pie.

Despite travelling to more than 100 countries during her reign, it has not made the monarch an adventurous eater.

The Queen apparently loves the cake so much she makes sure she has a slice every single day and is said to refuse to leave home without it.

Mr McGrady added: “The Queen never was a foodie. She always ate to live rather than lived to eat.”

In addition, the Queen is also a fan of a cheeky takeaway when she heads up to Balmoral Castle.

Royal insiders claim her majesty likes to order fish and chips from local chippies near her Scottish home.

She reportedly only has the dinner on special occasions.

A source told The Sun: “She very occasionally treats herself to fish and chips when at Balmoral.

“A footman is despatched to get it from the local town of Ballater.”

Despite the Queen having access to some of the world’s best chefs, she can’t resist some old fashioned comfort food on the odd occasion.

Outside of royal duties the Queen reportedly has a strict routine when it comes to her eating habits.

This routine includes a pre-lunch cocktail.

Her Majesty’s favourite tipple is said to be a gin and Dubonnet.

Dubonnet is a 15 percent wine based apertif made from a blend of fortified wine, herbs and spices.
