Queen Elizabeth II has eaten jam sandwiches every day since she was a child, according to her former personal chef.

Darren McGrady Claim on his YouTube channel The monarch loves strawberry preserves made from fruit picked at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.

โ€œAs a child, the Queen got jam pennies in the nursery. Sheโ€™s been using them for her afternoon tea ever since,โ€ he said in a recently revealed video released last July. Sandwiches are made with bread with a little butter and jam, then cut into circles the size of an old British penny.

As part of the elegant tradition of afternoon tea, McGrady, who claims to have been a chef before the Queen for 11 years, also revealed the Queenโ€™s solution to a conundrum familiar to British scones lovers: jam or cream?

โ€œThe queen always jams first,โ€ he said in another video. โ€œThe jam continues, followed by the delicious clotted cream.โ€

Aside from the reserve, the 96-year-old monarch has always preferred fresh strawberries. โ€œIf strawberries were in season, the Queen would eat strawberries three or four nights a week in Balmoral,โ€ he said.

"If strawberries are in season, the Queen eats at Balmoral three or four nights a week," Maddie said.  Queen Elizabeth has eaten same thing every day: private chef queen jam 92

But woe to anyone who tries to feed her out-of-season berries. A batch on the dinner table in January will mean โ€œcutting your head off,โ€ McGrady joked.

The Palace does not comment on the Queenโ€™s sandwich preferences.
