As a child of the British royal family, you’d expect the seven-year-old future king to have rather traditional tastes when it comes to food. Roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, perhaps, poached salmon (one of his great-grandmother’s favourite meals) or something like beef Wellington or even good old bangers and mash.

Not Prince George. The eldest child of Prince William and Kate Middleton likes nothing better than tucking into a bowl of spaghetti carbonara.

Italian celebrity chef Aldo Zilli, who’s worked alongside William with the youth homeless charity Centrepoint, made the revelation, adding it’s certainly not what one would expect from a seven-year-old.

“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,” he told the Daily Mail. 

He added that future king would not be able to resist his special take on it.

“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 seems all three Cambridge children are partial to Italian fare. Kate has previously shared that George, Princess Charlotte (5) and Prince Louis (2) sometimes help her to making their favourite cheesy pasta recipe.

She also says her eldest two love to make pizza dough and Charlotte is also a big fan of another Italian staple – olives.

In June during lockdown the family extended their love of food by delivering homemade food parcels, which included their own homemade pasta, to the elderly in their area.
