Finding things in common with members of the royal family is a difficult task, but you may be surprised to learn that they have guilty pleasures just like the rest of us. From Kate Middleton’s love of Indian food to Princess Eugenie’s obsession with Beyoncé, here are all of the royal family’s guilty pleasures revealed.
Middleton’s love for curry runs deep. In a recent interview, the Duchess of Cambridge admitted that her top choice for take-home is curry, despite the fact that Prince William cannot stand it.

At the start of #ChildrensMentalHealthWeek The Duchess of Cambridge visited @AlpertonCS to meet the UK’s first winner of the Varkey Foundation Global Teacher Prize, Andria Zafirakou, and find out more about the programmes the school runs to support both students and teachers with their mental wellbeing. The Duchess joined a roundtable discussion with teachers about students’ school readiness and teacher welfare, and joined students taking part in the Random Acts of Kindness Club, and dropped in on an art class to hear how the school uses art to enhance children’s confidence and creativity.
William apparently does not enjoy eating spicy foods and instead prefers either pizza or Chinese food.
Princess Eugenie, meanwhile, may be Beyoncé’s biggest fan. In 2018, Eugenie and James Middleton attended Beyoncé’s concert in London.
Eugenie, of course, landed front row seats at the concert and even had the opportunity to sing part of a song with Beyoncé herself. Although Eugenie froze in the moment and forgot the lyrics, she clearly had an amazing time.
As the newest member of the royal family, Meghan Markle might have one of the most common guilty pleasures: French fries.
According to Hello Magazine, the former actress has admitted that she could easily chow down on these golden treats all day long. The only thing that stops her is an iron will and a desire to stay in top shape.
When she is not thinking about French fries, Markle is pretty big on red wine. In fact, she even named her old blog after a variety of red wine called Tignanello. She also enjoys sipping on Pinot Noir, Malbec and French Cabernet.

"You do not have to be defined by your injury or disability. You may not realise or appreciate it yet, but do not underestimate the incredible impact you are having on those around you, by simply being yourself." — The Duke of Sussex, as he and The Duchess attended the #EndeavourFundAwards. The Duke presented Shaun with the Endeavour Fund Henry Worsley Award — swipe to watch Shaun’s story. Shaun Pascoe was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress after numerous tours around the world with the @RoyalAirForceUK Medical Emergency Response Team. He has now set up the Forces’ Sailing Charity @TurnToStarboard, providing more than 1200 sailing opportunities to service personnel and veterans. The Endeavour Fund Awards celebrate the achievements of wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women who have taken part in remarkable sporting and adventure challenges over the last year to help with their recovery.
Out of all of the royal family’s guilty pleasures, it is hard to beat out Queen Elizabeth’s love for chocolate. Her Majesty’s former chef, Darren McGrady, once called her a “chocoholic” before revealing how Elizabeth rarely tries new things when it comes to food.
Prince Philip, on the other hand, has quite the adventurous palate.
Kate Middleton and Prince William have been making the rounds this week to promote Children’s Mental Health Week.
