Queen Elizabeth’s belated birthday lunch
Queen Elizabeth enjoyed a birthday meal at an exclusive men’s club last week.
The 90-year-old monarch – who reached the milestone age in April – visited White’s in London with her husband Prince Philip for a belated celebratory lunch, the Daily Mail reports.
Although women are banned from the club, they make an exception for the monarch, whose son Prince Charles and grandson Prince William, are members.
While Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip enjoyed the belated birthday lunch, no doubt her beloved corgis were chowing down on some delicacies of their own as it was recently revealed that the pampered pooches have their own menu.
The monarch’s former chef, Darren McGrady – who worked for the royal for 11 years – has revealed the canines are extremely well looked after, so much so he would have to cook up special meals for the mutts on a daily basis.
He said: “When I worked at the Palace, we actually had a royal menu for the dogs.
“It would be chosen and sent to us in the kitchen every month by Mrs Fennick, who took care of all the dogs at Sandringham.
“It would list each day what the dogs were to have. One day it would be beef, the next day chicken, the next day lamb, the next day rabbit and it alternated through those days.
“The beef would come in, we would cook it, dice it into really fine pieces and then we did same with the chicken. We’d poach them, and again chop them really, really small to make sure there were no bones so the dogs wouldn’t choke.”
