Prince George's Favorite Meal Is Not What You'd Expect

Everyone knows that Prince George is adorable. While his little sister, Princess Charlotte, may steal the spotlight sometimes, Prince George, son of Prince William and Kate Middleton, once met President Obama in his pajamas and robe. Beat that Charlotte! If that wasn't cute enough, Prince George also has some very grown-up taste when it comes to his favorite meal. You might expect a seven-year-old to ask for macaroni and cheese or pizza when requesting their favorite food, but not Prince George. According to celebrity chef Aldo Zilli, Prince George likes spaghetti carbonara (via Delish).

Chef Zilli is an ambassador for Centrepoint, a youth homeless charity, and Prince William is a patron of the organization. Over the years, Zilli and Prince William have chatted several times, and Zilli said the Prince always talks animatedly about his three children, most recently revealing Prince George's favorite meal of spaghetti carbonara. Zilli says he is waiting for the royal call to cook the dish for Prince George (via Daily Mail).

How to make spaghetti carbonara

If you want to feel like a prince, try making spaghetti carbonara in your own kitchen. The creamy, cheesy, comforting pasta will leave you asking, macaroni what? While recipes can vary, this basic recipe from the New York Times requires just a few simple ingredients: spaghetti pasta, eggs, pancetta or bacon, Parmesan cheese, pecorino romano, and olive oil. Cook the pasta and meat separately. Mix eggs with cheese, stirring and cooking with the pasta after it's been cooked and drained. Add additional Parmesan, to taste.

Remember the macaroni-and-cheese and pizza mentioned earlier? Those are two of Princess Charlotte's favorite meals, and she even helps her mother make the sauce, according to Cheatsheet. Another clue into why Prince George may love spaghetti carbonara: His mom Kate has been making pasta fresh during the coronavirus lockdown, and the children have helped deliver pasta to vulnerable and at-risk people in Norfolk (via Marie Claire).
