The Duchess of Sussex was named as one of Variety’s Power of Women honorees, revealing in her latest tell-all interview that Prince Harry’s ultimate guilty pleasure is a takeout from American burger joint In-N-Out. The restaurant’s menu is surprisingly simple too, with nothing but burgers, fries and shakes forming the Prince’s favourite teatime treat, and all for under $6!

“My husband’s favorite is In-N-Out. There’s one at the halfway point between L.A. and our neck of the woods. It’s really fun to go through the drive-thru and surprise them,” Meghan said.

And for when the sweet cravings kick in, Meghan shared that she and Harry are often “equipped with chocolate chip cookies the size of [their] toddler’s head,” whenever they make the two-hour journey from their home in Montecito to downtown LA for meetings.

“The three of them would nip to McDonald’s for a Big Mac and fries before coming back to watch Blind Date. All three of them would squat on this massive, stuffed hippopotamus Diana had in her sitting room,” explained Paul.
Paul wasn’t the only royal staff member who was surprised by the trio’s antics. Former palace chef Darren McGrady confirmed in an interview with Marie Claire magazine: “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’.”
