Since Queen Elizabeth ruled England for 70 years, everyone in the Buckingham Palace kitchen was well-aware of her particular dietary requirements.

+ + +

McGrady told Vanity Fair that the queen liked strawberries with chocolate mousse or ice cream and ate pears with a spoon.

+ + +

However, these were not the only fruits for which the Queen had specific eating habits; she also had a very specific style of eating bananas.

+ + +

Queen Elizabeth would use a fork and knife to eat a banana rather than peel it and hold it in her hand.

+ + +

McGrady told RecipesPlus that she would remove the banana's bottom, slice it lengthwise, and then chop it into bite-sized pieces that she would eat with a fork.

+ + +

Royal dining regulations include how silverware is handled, according to etiquette expert William Hanson.

+ + +

Knives must be held on the right since that's how a sword or dagger is held; after eating, place your cutlery at 6:30 with the fork facing up.

+ + +

It would have made logical to link this to the way Queen Elizabeth eats bananas, but there is no such connection.

+ + +

According to what was said in McGrady's book, the reason was that she merely did not want to appear "like a monkey."
