The Sneaky Way a Royal Chef Got Prince William and Prince Harry to Eat Their Veggies Will Make You LOL

Just because you’re a prince doesn’t mean you don’t crave chicken nuggets and pizza for dinner.

According to Darren McGrady, a former private chef to Queen Elizabeth and Princess Diana and author of The Royal Chef at Home: Easy Seasonal Entertaining, he had to get extra clever if he wanted William and Harry to eat their veggies at every meal.

His tactic? McGrady said he would mash up broccoli and hide it in the boys’ mashed potatoes. It was a method highly endorsed by Princess Diana since, while she was often cool with relaxing the rules when it came to her kids, she did prefer that they eat the same thing the grown-ups were having by default, McGrady explained. (Hey, how else are you going to raise adventurous eaters, right?)

The method worked—in fact, he said it’s the fastest way to get kids to ask for a second helping. Now, the question remains: Do you think Prince William tries this same approach with Charlotte and George?
