The Duchess of Cornwall (aka Camilla, Prince Charles’ wife) has revealed to the world her royal husband’s favorite food, and in particular what he looks for in a canapé – and it’s all very Wallace and Gromit.

Yes, that’s it: Cheese!

"He loves local cheeses. He’s a huge cheese fan," Camilla said during an appearance on MasterChef Australia. "Anything to do with cheese, he’ll love."

The prince is also a fan of "anything with eggs," his wife shared, perhaps "with a bit of local vegetables of some kind."

"You’d definitely see a smile," if you served him that, she said.

That smile would turn upside down if you tried to serve Prince Charles anything with garlic, though.

"Garlic is a no-no," Camilla said, because it impedes socializing. "So you just have to lay off the garlic."

Good info to have for the next time you have the royals over for a cocktail and canapé!
