Twitter isn’t very happy with Prince Charles right now! The future king of England made a guest appearance on the episode of Masterchef Australia that aired on Wednesday, July 4, but the royal didn’t exactly make a great impression on viewers.
In fact, even though he was ostensibly there to taste and weigh in on the food prepared by several home cooks, the cameras seemingly didn’t catch Prince Charles actually eating anything over the course of his stint on the reality competition show. And this was despite the fact that the 69-year-old’s wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, guided the contestants through the heir to the throne’s likes and dislikes.
“I hate to say this, but garlic. Garlic is a no-no,” the duchess advised Masterchef Australia judge Gary Mehigan, according to the Huffington Post. She did, however, detail her husband’s love of “local cheeses” and eggs. “Anything with eggs with a bed of local vegetables of some kind, he’d love that,” Camilla explained.
Although some viewers have suggested Prince Charles abstained from eating any of the food prepared for him because of certain rules and regulations that pertain to the royal family – such as the reported secret mandate that forbids royals from eating on camera – Twitter wasn’t exactly cutting him any slack.

Everyone seems to be eating while Prince Charles is still chatting. Maybe waiting to see if someone else would throw up before he tries those canapés. All looked yum though!. #MasterChefAU
