Breakfast is dubbed the most important meal of the day, and it seems some members of the Royal Family take their first daily meal very seriously. From classics like eggs and porridge to some more divisive choices, here is what the royals are thought to eat for breakfast.
As a member of the British Royal Family, it is particularly fitting that Charles is thought to love a cup of tea like swathes of his future subjects.
Charles is said to love a cup of Darjeeling tea with milk and honey instead of sugar.
And when it comes to his brekkie, Prince Charles’ ‘breakfast box’ is thought to include key items like muesli and some special additions.

As per MyLondon, chef Graham Newbould said: “Prince Charles has a healthier option. He’d have homemade bread, a bowl of fresh fruit, and fresh fruit juices.
“Wherever the Prince goes in the world, the breakfast box goes with him. He has six different types of honey, some special mueslis, his dried fruit and anything that’s a bit special that he is a bit fussy about.”
Charles is thought to love eggs, with some reports indicating he has a soft-boiled one for breakfast every day.
The future King has also been rumoured to skip lunch completely to help him fit in as many engagements as he can during the working day.
Kate, Duchess of Cambridge
Kate, Duchess of Cambridge doesn’t publicly comment on what she eats, but with three children and a busy royal schedule, porridge is thought to be a firm favourite.
Reports have also indicated Kate favours a healthy smoothie, combining kale, spirulina, matcha (green tea leaves), spinach, romaine, coriander leaves and blueberries.
Kippers are thought to have been a firm favourite with the Queen for decades, although their strong odour might not appeal to some.
Former royal chef Darren McGrady also previously told the Telegraph the Queen is a fan of cereal band Special K with fruit.
Scrambled eggs and smoked salmon also top the Queen’s list of beloved brekkies, with a special truffle topping making an appearance around Christmas time.
