The Queen eats her burgers during a surprising way – and it's quite posh

The monarch's former chef revealed the fascinating fact

The royalty are said to enjoy a barbecue even as very much like us regular folk, and when the Queen stays at her Scottish summer residence Balmoral during the summer, she is even known to eat burgers.

That's enough of a surprise already, but did you recognize that British monarch eats her burger in an unconventional way?

Her Majesty's former chef, Darren McGrady, previously shared some fascinating information on how the Queen eats a burger, and we're amazed.

Speaking to Insider, Darren said: "Her Majesty's Victorian upbringing dictates that the sole thing you'd devour and eat together with your fingers is tea ." She, therefore, doesn't eat nutriment but does enjoy a burger now and again.

The chef explained how he would make burgers from the deer the royals would shoot at Balmoral, and he would then stuff the venison with other ingredients including cranberries. However, the large difference between how we eat a burger and the way the Queen eats a burger is this: she ditches the bun.

"They would have burgers, but not the buns. in order that they would eat it with their knife and fork," he added.

Well, that's a replacement one. A burger without a bun, and not in one's hand? We're unsure we'd be ready to follow this protocol… unless we were dining together with her Majesty perhaps.

The 'no finger food' rule amongst royalty also causes a problem when it involves fruit. 

Chef Darren, who was head chef within the kitchens of Buckingham Palace from 1982 to 1993, has also revealed how the Queen eats bananas.

The monarch is claimed to chop off the highest and bottom of the fruit, then slice the skin lengthways, before cutting the banana into small pieces to select at together with her knife and fork.

And if pineapples were on the menu at Buckingham Palace , they might need to be "hollowed out" so as to be sliced and inserted back to the pineapple, before being eaten using cutlery.
