No more cookies and fresh fruit for Camilla Parker Bowles. When the Duchess craves a little snack, she opts for a very surprising food. Visiting Ivydale Primary School in London on September 8 for International Literacy Day, Prince Charles’ wife revealed to young children what she used to nibble on when hunger strikes , namely: raw peas.
An amazing, yet healthy alternative to cakes and other treats. “I’m telling you what I really like – eating peas straight from the garden. If you take them straight from the pod, they are delicious and really sweet,” said Camilla Parker Bowles. A practice to which she also initiated … her grandchildren! “I take all my grandchildren to the garden and they spend hours and hours eating peas,” she said. We now know the little one in the preferred case of Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who are also followers of this practice, says Hello.
Windsor fans of organic vegetable gardens
Very attentive to what goes on their plate, Camilla Parker Bowles and Prince Charles are fans of fresh and organic produce, and cultivate their own vegetable garden at Highgrove House in Gloucestershire. A practice now widespread within the royal family, since when they settled in Frogmore Cottage, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry also grew their own vegetables, while Kate Middleton manages that of Kensington Palace, in which she grows his children’s favorite vegetables. And especially beets, which Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are very fond of.
