    Prince William tops his burger with a fried egg, mint sauce, and paprika Fri, Jul 24, 2015

    During his recent service at the Royal Air Force Valley, The Telegraph reported that Prince William’s favourite snack was a lamb burger. According to chef Gareth Matheson, the ‘Royal Welsh Lamb Burger’ is a 450 calorie, half-pounder burger made with only local and fresh produce including Snowdonia cheese, bacon, a fried egg and a dash of mint sauce and paprika. "It was William’s absolute favourite,” Matheson claimed. “He liked the idea that we were using all local and fresh produce.” Upon learning of the prince’s penchant for lamb burgers, fast-food giant Burger King decided to make their own version to be sent to Kensington Palace which, was aptly named the ‘Prince William Whopper,’ the Mirror reported. Though not as fancy as Matheson’s Royal Welsh, the burger featured a lamb patty with cheese, bacon and egg. Burger King told the Mirror they were bringing “a taste of our kingdom to the future King of England.”  Anwar Hussein/ Prince William isn’t the only royal with cravings. More »
