Bananas for Prince William

By Autumn Brewington

People magazine posted a few tidbits from a former chef of Princess Diana's -- and the skinny is that Prince William is a fan of banana flan.

Darren McGrady tells the magazine that when he prepared private lunches for the princess and her two sons, "[t]wo or even three slices of banana flan were perfectly okay as long as 'my boys' are happy -- that was how the boss thought."

People includes a recipe for the dessert -- which is sort of like banana cream pie -- adapted from McGrady's "Eating Royally." Last month, McGrady theorized about the menu at the reception following William's wedding to Kate Middleton -- and mentioned that the prince's "all-time favorite" was cottage pie, a concoction of ground beef, brown sauce, mashed potatoes and cheese.

There's no word on whether either will be served at William and Kate's breakfast reception or wedding-night dinner.

W/all due respect to Mr. McGrady, there is a big difference between the 'all time favorite' of a teenage boy & a 28 year old man on his wedding day.
