And no, tea and scones did not make the list.

The Duchess of Cornwall revealed her husbands favourite foods, during their joint appearance on Masterchef Australia last night.

MasterChef judge Gary Mehigan managed to get a few moments alone in the kitchen with Camilla where she spilled the beans on Prince Charles’ most treasured treats.

The Duchess gushed that her husband was a ‘huge cheese fan, anything to do with cheese he’ll love,’ she said.

It’s no secret that for more than four decades The Prince of Wales has used his unique position to champion action for a sustainable future. So it’s no surprise that Camilla also confessed that the Prince loves local produce and environmental sustainability.

Probing for a little more information on foods the Prince can’t resist, Gary continued to get the scoop from the Duchess.

‘Anything with eggs, and a bit of local vegetable, he’d love that,’ the Duchess of Cornwall admitted, ‘You’d definitely see a smile.’

Camilla also gave a bit of insight into what her grandchildren love to eat. Revealing that she keeps ketchup in her fridge especially for the little ones she said, ‘My grandchildren are rather addicted to ketchup.’

The Duchess of Cornwall went on to reveal a few more food dos and don’ts, saying that she couldn’t live without olive oil and even fresh tomatoes. She then went on to admit that garlic has to be avoided when it comes to royal dining, ‘I hate to say this… but garlic is a no-no.’
