    Behind palace walls: Diana and Charles’ former chef talks press intrusion, hiding William and Harry and celebrity guests

    Life at Kensington Palace was full of ups and downs in the late eighties and early nineties. The royal residence’s key occupants, Prince Charles and Princess Diana, were struggling with a marriage breakdown in the public eye while raising two young children. But, within palace walls, everything was kept as normal as possible. According to Carolyn Robb, the couple’s former chef, the pair were “very professional about everything and kept everything normal for the sake of William and Harry.” Robb, who worked for Diana and Charles in Kensington Palace for eleven years, has nothing but praise for her former employers. In an exclusive interview with royal reporter Omid Scobie for Yahoo UK, Robb talks about what life in the palace was really like for the Wales’. Life was “normal” when the family was at home, recalls Robb: “We had the equipment we needed but it was by no means the latest induction hob.” The kitchen was “the gathering place,” Robb explains. “Everybody popped in and out. There were always other people in the kitchen, usually protection officer drinking cups of tea. And certainly there were occasions, particularly if Princess Diana was at home on her own in the evenings, she’d say: ‘just leave a plate of food in the fridge for me’. I think it was nice for her to be able to just pop into the kitchen and help herself and have things a little more informal at times.” Harry and William would “fly in and out” of the kitchen, hiding from their nannies in the cupboards. “Usually Harry’s giggling gave him away,” says Robb. Robb didn’t just cook for the family: she was responsible for feeding visiting diners, including A-listers such as Elton John, Emma Thompson and Barbara Streisand. She even once cooked for the Dalai Lama during a visit to Kensington Palace.

    The Queen, Charles and William 'always travel with a bag of their own blood'

    The Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William always take a vital essential on their royal tours with them - a supply of their own blood. The Sun’s former royal editor Duncan Larcombe tells Yahoo UK’s ‘The Royal Box,’: “If it’s the Queen, Prince Charles or Prince William, they’ll have the royal physician with them, with a bag full of their own blood, just in case something happens.” With Charles and Camilla going to New Zealand, Kate and William set to travel to Pakistan and Meghan and Harry heading to Africa this autumn - who is in their royal entourage? The Sunday Times' royal correspondent Roya Nikkhah explains: "It tends to be between 12 - 14 in the entourage. It tends to be three press secretaries, a private secretary, sometimes an assistant private secretary will go as well, a hairdresser, a valet, a digital person who assists with communications."

    The huge problem facing the Royal Family when the Queen dies

    The Royal Family face a problem when the Queen dies and it’s all to do with the popularity of the monarchy, according to one royal expert. Tim Ewart, ITV News’ former royal editor tells Yahoo UK’s ‘The Royal Box’: “The reality for the monarchy is that when the Queen dies, one of the reasons for the monarchy’s popularity will be gone. “A large part of the popularity of the monarchy is based on the popularity of the Queen. Will that transfer to her son? Open question, we don’t know, but there are suggestions that he’s not as popular as she is.”
