Foie Gras

Foie Gras is a french food from a specially bred goose’s heart, making it larger than a common goose’s. The reason behind Foie Gras prohibition is not about health concerns; instead, it is caused by animal welfare. Foie Gras was officially banned at the British Royal Palace in 2008 by King Charles III who was then still the Prince of Wales. 


Queen Elizabeth II and the royal family avoid eating onions. The reason is very simple, it is because they often greet the guests and we all know that onions cause bad breath. It would be very impolite for the royal family to have bad breath while having a conversation with the guests. This statement was also confirmed by Camilla Parker Bowles when she was on MasterChef Australia a few years ago.
