While most eight year olds would probably brand the likes of chicken nuggets, pizza and chips as their favourite foods,Prince Georgeapparently has a more sophisticated palette.
According to celebrity chef Aldo Zilli, Prince George is quite fond of Italian food but a classic Margherita pizza isn’t his go-to meal, like most eight year olds.
Aldo has spoken to George’s dad Prince William on several occasions, and over the course of their conversations has learnt of the young prince’s love of spaghetti carbonara.
"[William's] amazing — I'm waiting for the call because apparently, his little boy's favourite is spaghetti carbonara, so I'm waiting for the call to go and cook it for him,” Aldo told Femail.
“If George has my carbonara, he will never have another one, so I need to go and make it, let's get the ball rolling, send me to the palace to cook!”
It’s no wonder George has such a mature palette, as his £18,915 a year school gives its students an array of worldly meals; a far cry from the tray bake cakes and fish fingers and chips most of us will have had as kids.
According toMyLondon, the Prince and his fellow students are treated to meals such as vegetable and bean jambalaya, Spanish omelette and a Mexican rice wrap, as well as cheddar and caramelized red onion quiche served with new potatoes.
Carbonara isn’t the only surprising thing George's sophisticated palette has attempted — he’s also been challenged by Bear Grylls to eat an ant before.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain last month,Bear recalled the moment he met the young Royal.
“We were chatting and just as we were chatting a stream of ants went across his feet,” Bear explained.
“He looked at me with those amazing little wide eyes and I said, ‘come on, we’ve got to eat one!’
“He said, ‘Really?!’ And then he ate one."
Bear went on to describe it as a “privilege to give the future King his first ant”, and described the eight year old as a “hero”.
As to what ants actually taste like, Bear explained: “They’re a little zingy but that’s a formic acid in the stomach and it’s all Vitamin C so it’s ok.”
