These are the foods Kate Middleton & Meghan Markle can't eat now they're royals

It's no secret that those in the royal family have to obey some pretty strict rules when it comes to living their life.

In a recent documentary that followed the Duke and Duchess's royal tour to Africa, Meghan Markle tearfully revealed just how hard it can be.

And while when it comes to following royal protocol we often think about the clothes they wear and the general etiquette rules, no one ever really imagines the strict royal rules around eating.

As it turns out, when Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle joined the royal family, there were certain foods in their diet that they had to cut out.

The Duchess of Cornwall revealed that when on official engagements, she's not allowed to eat anything that is heavy on the garlic.

"Garlic is a no-no... You always have to lay off the garlic," she said, while appearing on Australian Masterchef last year.

This rule was also confirmed by a former royal chef, Darren McGrady, who said that the palace chefs have to avoid too much garlic or onion.

Shellfish is also off the menu for immediate members of the royal family, due to the risk of food poisoning.

Foie Gras was also banned from the palace in 2008 by Prince Charles over his concerns for animal welfare.

On another note, Queen Elizabeth apparently hates her meat to be cooked rare, and always as her's well-done.
