Diana, the cook to the Princess of Wales, says The Crown misrepresented Charles

Former head chef to Diana, Princess of Wales, said The Crown misrepresented Prince Charles.

Darren McGrady worked as a cook for the Royal Household for over eleven years.

Working exclusively for Princess Diana for several years, he says the Netflix series received an “artistic license” to portray Prince Charles.

And especially how he treated his first wife, the late Princess Diana.

He says Prince Charles was really happy for the first few years of their marriage.

Speak with US WeeklyHe explained, “You see them arguing and fighting in Australia, but they were happy there. And just like Balmoral Castle when we had the Ghillies Ball. “

Before I explain further, “I remember standing there and watching Prince Charles and Princess Diana dance together and they spun and spun and the princess loved to dance.

“So she took advantage of it and turned the prince faster, and then he laughed louder and louder. And when I see the crown and see that and think, ‘You don’t know the whole truth.’ “

He shared, “I never talked about the dark times when she struggled through bulimia.

“Instead, I focus on the positive side – how her diet has changed and how she is eating healthy.”

She later explained, “When bread and butter pudding was on the menu, it was her favorite.

“She was too scared to ask for seconds in front of the Queen. So she came into the kitchen a little later.

“I always made an extra bowl of it and she was sitting there on the sideboard chatting.”

After admitting he’d never had a baby in hand, she gave him a newborn Prince Harry while she ate her breakfast cereal.
