Spare, Prince Harry’s memoir, is most known for spilling the beans on the Royal Family and exposing previously unknown facts regarding his childhood and time as a working royal.
But, among the drama, Prince Harry revealed to royal fans some of his favorite meals and how he and his wife, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, have a passion for all things culinary.
In the book, Harry describes how, in the early days of their relationship, Meghan had to teach him how to make one of his favorite delicacies, roast chicken.
Meghan later said that the couple got engaged as Harry was returning the favor by serving his wife a roast supper.
She said: “[We were] trying to roast a chicken and it just — just an amazing surprise, it was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got on one knee.”
Prince Harry is said to enjoy chicken so much that it was one of his go-to meals even while his wife was in labor.
The Duke of Sussex describes being in the hospital with Meghan as she prepares to give birth in Spare.
While waiting for labor to be induced, Harry decided to “optimize” his wife’s peace of mind by ordering from Nando’s and having the dinner delivered by bodyguards.
Prince Harry, like his late mother Princess Diana, has a sweet appetite, noting in the book that one of his favorite sweets is bread and butter pudding.
Eton College hosted a celebratory party for Harry’s 13th birthday in 1997, complete with some of his favorite treats.
He was given a choice of two flavors, with the prince recalling that he chose a blackcurrant and mango-flavored dish, which he claimed was also a favorite of his mother, who had died only two weeks previously.
Meghan also shared her daily eating habits in 2016, claiming she avoids binge eating and follows a vegan diet during the week.
Her “kryptonite” was French fries, but she also enjoys pasta, stating, “Who doesn’t love a carbohydrate?”
She continued: “But of course, when I’m filming, I’m conscious of what I eat. I try to eat vegan during the week and then have a little bit more flexibility with what I dig into on the weekends.
She added: “But at the same time, it’s all about balance. Because I work out the way I do, I don’t ever want to feel deprived. I feel that the second you do that is when you start to binge on things. It’s not a diet; it’s lifestyle eating.”
