Prince William and Kate Middleton's favorite takeout orders are probably similar to yours

When I'm ordering takeout, it's most likely either done at 2 am on a Saturday night or during a marathon of "The Bachelor." I certainly do not feel like royalty when I'm knee deep in Dominos Pizza, but apparently I'm a little more bougie than I originally though... Prince William and Kate Middleton are also big fans of takeout.

Here's everything you need to know about your favorite royal couples' takeout meals, so you can be a little more regal in your next Postmates order. 

What Do They Order? 

During a BBC Radio 1 Interview, Prince William and Kate Middleton talked mainly about mental health awareness, but they also dished on their favorite takeout orders. Their go-to is curry (aka Indian food in the UK), but don't expect them to order anything too spicy because, as Prince William stated, he's "not so good with spicy food." 

If they're looking for a switch up from their usual order, they struggle to decide between pizza and Chinese food. I'm assuming that their pizza is a bit more classy than my cheese crust order, but I respect that they stick with the basics in their takeout.

THEY MUST ACCEPT ALL GIFTS GRACIOUSLY

While the royal family has to accept every gift that they receive (even if it’s something super lame), it’s up to Queen Elizabeth who gets to keep which gift.

PRINCE PHILIP IS REQUIRED TO WALK BEHIND THE QUEEN

Since their marriage, Her Majesty’s husband must walk a few steps behind her at all times. Who run the world?

THERE’S A STRICT DRESS CODE

Members of the royal family are expected to dress modestly and never overtly casual. (Serious question: Can you imagine a life without sweatpants?) That doesn’t mean that they can’t have some fun, though.

THEY CAN’T JUST PROPOSE WILLY-NILLY

According to the Royal Marriages Act of 1772, royal descendants must seek the monarch’s approval before proposing. (AhemHarry and Meghan.)

TWO HEIRS CANNOT FLY TOGETHER

That’s in case something tragic were to happen. Once Prince George (who is third in line to the throne after Prince Charles and Prince William) turns 12, he will have to fly separately from his dad.

AND THEY ALWAYS TRAVEL WITH AN ALL-BLACK ENSEMBLE

The royal family is nothing if not prepared. A respectable all-black outfit is packed with them on their travels in case of a sudden death and they must attend a funeral.

PDA IS FROWNED UPON

Although there is no formal law that forbids future monarchs from showing affection, Queen Elizabeth II set a precedent that encourages royals to keep their hands to themselves. Which is why you rarely see Prince William and Kate Middleton smooching in public, or even holding hands. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, on the other hand, are not under as much pressure to adhere to this protocol.

NO POLITICS ALLOWED

Members of the royal family are not allowed to vote or even publicly express their opinion on political matters.

WHEN THE QUEEN STANDS, SO DO YOU

And don’t even think about sitting until Her Majesty has done so.

BUT THE QUEEN IS NOT ALLOWED TO SIT ON A FOREIGN THRONE

Even if the throne is from the Seven Kingdoms.

THEY LEAVE THE TABLE DISCREETLY

If a royal must use the restroom during a meal, they don’t announce it to the table. Instead, they apparently simply say “Excuse me,” and that’s that. (If only your toddler would do the same.)

YOU MUST ADDRESS ROYALS PROPERLY

This one’s a little confusing. Apparently, when you first meet the queen, you should address her as “Your Majesty” and then “Ma'am.” For other female members of the royal family, you should use “Your Royal Highness,” and then again “Ma'am” in later conversation. For male royals, it's “Your Royal Highness” and then “Sir.” And under no circumstances should you address the queen as “Liz.”

THERE ARE NO AUTOGRAPHS OR SELFIES ALLOWED

So put that selfie stick away.

TIARAS ARE ONLY WORN BY MARRIED WOMEN

No ring? No tiara.

THEY RARELY EAT SHELLFISH

This isn’t a requirement, but a wise rule that many royals, including Queen Elizabeth, adhere to because of the increased likelihood of food poisoning.

CURTSIES ARE ENCOURAGED

While the official website for the British Monarchy says that there are “no obligatory codes of behaviour when meeting the queen or a member of the Royal Family,” it also states that many people wish to observe the traditional forms. That means a neck bow (from the head only) for men and a small curtsy for women.

WHEN THE QUEEN FINISHES EATING, THEN SO MUST YOU

Dining with royalty? No extra portions for you.

THE QUEEN SIGNALS WHEN A CONVERSATION IS OVER

If you see Her Majesty move her purse from her left arm to her right, then it’s time to stop talking. That apparently signals to her staff that she’s ready to move on.

SIX RAVENS MUST LIVE AT THE TOWER OF LONDON

According to legend, at least six ravens must remain at the giant fortress or else the monarchy will fall. But no one actually believes that, do they? Well, apparently so, since there are indeed seven (one spare) birds living at the Tower currently.

ROYAL WEDDING BOUQUETS CONTAIN MYRTLE

This tradition started with Queen Victoria and continued with the Duchess of Cambridge's marriage in 2011. This pretty flower symbolizes good luck in love and marriage. Aww...

THEY’RE NOT ALLOWED TO PLAY MONOPOLY

When the Duke of York was presented with the board game, he revealed that it’s forbidden in the royal household because “it gets too vicious.” Royals—they’re just like us.

How Exactly Do Royals Order Takeout? 

The royals sadly do not have the luxury of being able to order takeout straight to their door. I guess Kensington Palace can't register as a destination for UberEats. I mean, can you imagine dropping off someone's takeout and having to go through like six rounds of royal security? 

In order to get their food, Prince William and Kate Middleton usually pick up their food from outside the grounds. Sadly, you're most likely not going to see them out on the town in their sweats, though. William copped to not picking up the food himself. 

It's Basically a TV Dinner

Showing their grounded roots, Prince William and Kate Middleton like to eat their takeout while watching the telly. Their favorite shows are "Homeland" and "Game of Thrones." They are certainly more refined in taste than my "Vanderpump Rules" viewing, but I respect the commitment to maintaining a typical takeout experience.

You may not be able to be crowned royal, but by ordering some curry and watching GoT, maybe you can be a little bit more like Prince William and Kate Middleton than you thought. I don't know about you, but I'd still like to know how Prince Harry and Meghan Markle order takeout (I'm willing to place bets Markle orders French fries).

Little-known facts about Kensington Palace

1. It's more than 400 years old. The two-story sprawling residence was built in 1605.

2. It wasn't always a royal residence. In fact, it was originally a mansion called Nottingham House that was built during the Jacobean era (1567-1625) for Sir George Coppin, one of London's wealthy businessmen.

3. But asthma led to it becoming a palace. When King William and Queen Mary assumed their joint thrones in 1689, they began looking for a new place to live: Whitehall Palace was too close to the River Thames, which agitated King William's asthma. They purchased Nottingham House in the summer of 1689 for roughly $24,500.

4. A reigning monarch hasn't lived there in more than 250 years. The last ruling king to make Kensington Palace his primary residence was King George II, who died in 1760.

5. But several ghosts do. The most famous of which is the aforementioned King George, whose ghost is reportedly spotted in the King's Gallery moaning, "Why won't they come?" (his alleged last words).

6. It was almost bulldozed in the 1890s. But the palace—which had fallen into major disrepair—was saved by Queen Victoria, who got Parliament to approve a two-year renovation.

7. More than 1 million bouquets were left at the palace gates when Princess Diana died. They stretched nearly 5 feet deep.

8. And her apartment lay empty for 10 years after her death. No one has lived there since.

9. You can host an event there. Seriously—you can have weddings, galas, charity events, and the like (for up to 2,000 people) at Kensington Palace.

10. Case in point: Nicky Hilton was married there. Her July 2015 wedding to James Rothschild took place in the Palace's Orangery.
