The Queen once made a ‘brutal’ remark to the Royal chefs after ‘finding a slug in her dinner,’ according to the book ‘Dinner at Buckingham Palace’.
Charles Oliver, a former servant under Her Majesty, revealed in his novel that she had a funny response after having an uninvited guest at dinner with herself and Prince Phillip.
According to The Mirror, he wrote in his book: “[The Queen and Prince Phillip] would keep a notepad next to their plates so they could make notes about the meal and give their feedback to the chef.”

The former chef continued: “Once, on a torn-off top sheet the footmen found the dead body of a slug,” Oliver added that on the note The Queen had written, ‘I found this in the salad—could you eat it?’.”
During her 70-year-reign, The Queen has gained a reputation for her dry sense of humour and other staff members who have worked under her during this time have shared times she has been a bit of a joker.
In a documentary aired for Royal’s 95th birthday, presenter Alexander Armstrong revealed she used to send letters to one of the royal staff member’s dogs.
However, she would pretend to be her famous corgi dogs, Monty, Willow, and Holly, when sending these letters.
Armstrong explained: “He would write these letters from their Jack Russell to the corgis and the Queen would write these letters back.
“And they put this series of letters up, and they are so funny. I wish I could remember them.
”I remember holding my stomach, howling with laughter because they are wickedly funny.’
