Kate Middleton and Prince William's favourite takeaway and 'unique' food rule

Prince William and Kate Middleton have a unique takeaway privilege that other members of the Royal Family don't. Like many Brits, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoy tucking into a delicious takeaway now and then, with Indian and Chinese dishes being their top picks for a relaxing night in.

Yet unlike other royals who have to pick up their food themselves from the Palace gates, William and Kate have someone deliver it straight to their door. Back in 2017, the Royal couple confirmed to BBC Radio 1 host Scott Mills that they are "absolutely" allowed to order a takeaway, with their regal status posing no barriers to a cheeky treat when the occasion calls for it.

During the interview, Kate confessed her favourite is a "curry, definitely", while William admitted he's "not so good with spice". The Duke of Cambridge then revealed that their food gets picked up for them.

In a second appearance, this time on BBC Radio Five Live's 'That Peter Crouch Podcast', William did elaborate further on his meal choices, and shared that despite not being a fan of spice, he does enjoy a chicken masala from time to time as he is "not a vindaloo man".

In contrast, Princess Eugenie has previously disclosed that they have to collect their food from the Palace gates - sometimes even in their pyjamas. On the Table Manners podcast earlier this year, Eugenie said: "So last night we got a curry, which I never do," reports the Express.

"I never eat them! Jack and I were literally sitting for an hour on Deliveroo, like what on Earth does this mean?"

Eugenie, a doting mum to two adorable sons, was quizzed about how the logistics of ordering in, as many listeners were perplexed by how the delivery drivers gain access to the Palace, given it's tight security. She then revealed that they actually go and collect it themselves.

The 34 year old shared: "We ring down and say, 'There's a Deliveroo coming', and then we'll get in our pyjamas and drive down and go pick it up."

When questioned about the inconvenience of it, Eugenie admitted they could walk, but she doesn't fancy being outside in her PJs. In response to whether they couldn't just have it delivered straight to their door, Eugenie confessed that this isn't an option for her and her family.

It's not just the Cambridges and Eugenie who enjoy a takeaway; other Royals are fans too, including Queen Camilla who is partial to a classic British dish - traditional fish and chips!

A former Royal butler also spilled the beans that the late Princess Diana would often treat Prince William and Prince Harry to a McDonalds.
