The Queen Had a Very LOL Comeback After Finding a Slug in Her Salad

 In a book released at the end of last year, Long live the Queen: 23 Rules for living from Britain, by lifestyle and British-culture researcher, Bryan Kozlowski, it's alleged that Queen Elizabeth is generally a very easy person to cook for.

 It also claims that in spite of this, she still keeps a notepad on the table at mealtimes, just in case she has any feedback to pass on to the Palace chefs.

Cooking for [her] is no trouble at all," Charles Mellis, who had a twelve-year stint in the royal kitchens, is quoted as saying. However, Kozlowski adds that there was one particular incident that left Her Royal Highness less than impressed—but which also presented her with the perfect opportunity to prank one of her members of staff.

"There was the odd moment, years ago, when a footman found a torn off page from the notepad, concealing a squashed slug inside," he writes. Shocked? Same—as was Queen Elizabeth, one might imagine. Kozlowski continues: "'I found this in my salad,' the Queen had scribbled on the pad. 'Could you eat it?'"

Now, the book is in no way authorized by Her Majesty or her royal team—so make of that tale what you will—but considering it gave us a good chuckle in lockdown, we're really hoping it's true.
