As reported by Daily Mail, Queen Elizabeth II, who started to undertake public duties during the Second World War, once found a dead slug in her salad.

She reportedly tore off a page from the remarks book intended to be used to send her appreciation - or distaste - to the chef.

The 92-year-old then put the dead slug on the page before writing "I found this in the salad - could you eat it?" and sending it back to the kitchen.

The Queen, who is the sixth-longest-reigning monarch of all time, is said to appreciate a pure taste in food, Mirror reported.

McGrady, who worked as a royal chef for over a decade, stated supper would be game or fish from one of the royal estates. He added that Her Majesty adores white peaches from the greenhouse at Windsor Castle.

Though the Queen isn't thought to cook for herself, she’s not very regal to wash up.
