One youngster asked if the Queen ever eats pizza, and Kate admitted that she wasn’t sure
‘The Queen didn’t even have it on the menu when we were in Palermo, Sicily on HMY Britannia. The chefs had to go ashore after royal dinner to try it.’
McGrady did say, however, that two of her grandsons were huge fans.
He added: ‘I didn’t start really cooking pizzas until I moved to Kensington Palace. William and Harry would have had it every night if Nanny had let them. They loved it.’
Buckingham Palace declined to comment.
Kate however, admitted to indulging in the treat revealing that she prefers to have bacon as a topping rather than ‘spicy pepperoni.’
She made the comments while visiting the King Henry’s Walk Garden to see how its brings members of the local community together through gardening and growing food.
While the Queen is apparently not a fan of pizza Her Majesty’s more unusual eating habits have let slip over the years.

Mr McGrady, who now runs his own catering company, has previously revealed how the Queen would be presented with a ‘menu book’, which was sent to her two or three times a week for the coming days.
Speaking in an interview with FEMAIL, he said: ‘The menu book was sent up to her and she’d put a line through the ones she didn’t want
Explaining how the monarch played an even bigger parts in state banquets, he said: ‘She’d oversee the full menu, choose what she wanted – do we have enough pheasant, grouse, partridge?
‘She loved food from the estate and to see her own produce on the menu.’
He added: ‘She loved the hosting side of the event. Garden parties were huge we’d have to do so much food, scones and pastries, ice cream made fresh. ‘
