queen fears


The Queen has a quirky habit when enjoying her afternoon tea and reportedly absolutely refuses to eat “pointed-edged” food. The 95-year-old monarch has a strict diet and has certain times her food must be served and reportedly pays close attention to the shape of her food as well.


A former royal chef revealed Her Majesty refuses to eat pointed-edged food due to tradition. Due to this, all of the Queen’s sandwiches must be square shaped, former royal chef Graham Newbould explained.

Speaking to Hello! Magazine Mr Newbould explained the true reason behind the quirky tradition. He said: “The royals never have square sandwiches because tradition has it that anyone presenting them with pointed-edged food is trying to overthrow the throne of England.”



However, another theory explaining why the monarch prefers round sandwiches is because Prince Albert, husband to Queen Victoria, reportedly believed it was unlucky to eat coffin-shaped food.
