Queen sends wry message to royal kitchen staff after finding dead slug in salad

The Queen gave a cheeky message to the royal kitchen staff after finding a dead slug in her salad.

If a dish doesn't come up to standard it could even risk receiving a note from the Queen herself to communicate her displeasure, though sometimes with a little humour thrown in.

This, allegedly, is what happened when the Queen discovered an unwanted guest in her salad, the Mirror reports.

On this occasion, she reportedly tore a page from the comment book used to communicate her appreciation or distaste to the chefs.

After tearing out the page, she allegedly then placed a dead slug on the page before writing: "I found this in the salad, could you eat it?", before sending it to the kitchen, the Daily Mail's Weekend magazine reports.

Nonetheless, the Queen reportedly has simple taste when it comes to food.

One of her former chefs Darren McGrady revealed that she enjoys "clean and simple" meals such as grilled dover sole on wilted spinach.

The Queen selects her meals from a red leather-bound book, the contents of which is assembled by the chef.

She marks out her choices in pencil, crossing out dishes she doesn't want, and occasionally writing in suggestions.

In the week, the Queen wakes up at 7:30am and takes a cup of Darjeeling tea from her chambermaid while listening to the Today Programme on Radio 4.

At breakfast, cereals are presented in Tupperware containers.

She also reportedly likes yoghurt and marmalade on toast, sometimes giving the crusts to her dogs.

At afternoon tea, which is usually held at 4pm, she has a selection of sandwiches with the crusts cut off, as well as a selection of cakes including chocolate, ginger, and fruit cake.

McGrady also revealed that dinner would usually be game or fish from one of the royal estates.

The Queen is also fond of white peaches from the greenhouse at Windsor Castle.

Though not thought to cook for herself, she is nonetheless said to be more than happy to help with the washing up.
