Princess Diana used to take Prince William and Prince Harry on ‘secret’ trips to McDonalds for Happy Meal toys

SHE might have had access to the world’s top chefs – but when Princess Diana wanted to treat her sons, she’d simply take them to McDonald’s.

According to former royal chef Darren McGrady, Diana would regularly take Prince William and Prince Harry out of Kensington Palace for Happy Meal.

Speaking to Marie Claire, Darren tried to explain that he could make them burgers and fries for them to enjoy in Palace grounds.

But the mum-of-two insisted that her boys loved the toys that came in Happy Meals and enjoyed taking them on the “secret” trips.

He said: “I remember the Princess came into the kitchen one day and said, ‘Cancel lunch for the boys I’m taking them out, we’re going to McDonald’s.

“And I said, ‘Oh my god – your Royal Highness, I can do that, I can do burgers.’ And she said, ‘No, it’s the toy they want.”

He continued: “The boys loved McDonald’s, and going out to pizza, and having potato skins—sort of the American foods.

“They were royal princes but had children’s palates.”

What’s more, the royal’s s former butler Paul Burrell has previously revealed that a trip to McDonald’s was Diana’s “Saturday night ritual” with the boys.

Paul told the Mirror: “The three of them would nip to McDonald’s for a Big Mac and fries before coming back to watch Blind Date.”
