One of the queen's favorite dishes was ordinary burgers. Her chef Darren McGrady told a British media outlet about it. But he did not use buns. He also added a delicious cranberry sauce. According to People, such an exclusive dish even had its own name - "Maamburger".

The woman never ate with her hands, because it was not a proper way for a real lady.
