It's Going to Be a Very Vegan Christmas for the Royal Family
Consider this a happy, healthy holiday for Kate and Wills.
One might consider a royal Christmas dinner as pretty hearty, full of roast-laden platters. This year, though, that's not necessarily the case (when it comes to dining with in-laws!)
Prince William and Kate Middleton tend to trade off holidays, spending some with the royal family and some with Kate’s parents. This year, they are expected to be spending Christmas dining with the Middletons. The meal may be a bit different than previous years though, because Carole Middleton, Kate’s mom, has just gone vegan!
The Duchess of Cambridge’s mother revealed she’s now a vegan in a recent interview. “Or maybe that should be flexitarian. If I go to someone’s house for dinner, I’m not going to make a fuss. For Christmas, I’d probably have two options — very traditional and something vegan.”
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their family will be in good company: British supermarket chain Tesco recently published a report that revealed one in five Brits are eating vegan this Christmas — royals included, it seems.
Luckily, there’s lots of ways to do Christmas dinner healthy and vegan without compromising flavor, such as Roasted Cauliflower Steak and Tuscan Vegetable Soup.
Of course, there’ll still be some regal fun going on. In the same interview, Carole Middleton revealed that for lunch, she’ll serve a (non-vegan) snack of "champagne and smoked salmon," along with the "essentials" that include mulled wine and mince pies.
