Meghan Markle once admitted that one of her favourite recipes involved a very "filthy and sexy" pasta made with courgettes.
But during her brief stint performing royal duties, she had to avoid adding another much-loved ingredient to her spaghetti.
Prince Harry's wife was reportedly banned from eating shellfish while on the road.
And the rule will have come as bad news for the self-proclaimed foodie who once cited seafood as one of her favourite dishes.
While working as a professional actress, Meghan told The New Potato magazine her "ideal food day" would involve seafood pasta while slurping on a gin, vermouth and Campari cocktail.
“A leisurely dinner of seafood and pasta, and a negroni to cap off the night," she said.
Before joining the Royal Family, Meghan liked to share her recipes on her lifestyle blog The Tig. The former Suits actress said she was a dab hand at cooking seafood dishes "to please most palates".
But sadly those meals will have had to stay on the back burner after she married Prince Harry.
Royal butler Grant Harrold said the family do not eat seafood out of fear of getting food poisoning.
He told the Express: “It is a very sensible move to abandon having seafood when out and about on public duties.
“We don't want a member of the royal family having a serious reaction to food poisoning, especially if she is on an overseas tour.”
The Duchess of Sussex, 38, now lives miles away in Los Angeles with Harry, their son Archie Harrison, and daughter Lilibet Diana.
And after the couple's much-publicised split from the royal family in 2020, seafood will no doubt be back on the menu.
But only on a weekend.
Meghan told Best Health in 2016 that she tries to maintain a vegan plant-based diet during the week before treating herself on a weekend.
One of her recipes involved slow-roasting courgettes into a "filthy, sexy mush" for her pasta.
"The sauce gets so creamy, you'd swear there's tons of butter and oil in it, but it's just zucchini, water and a little bouillon," she told Delish.
Meghan also doesn't deny herself the odd plate of chips and loves a good red wine. Avoiding caffeine in the afternoon, she prefers a green juice for an energy boost.
She said she's normally hungrier at lunchtimes, so typically enjoys a heavier meal then, followed by a lighter dinner. Some of her other favourite lunches include sashimi and salads.
She was lso reportedly banned from eating garlic before seeing the Queen. But as well as seafood she's now presumably also free to eat the stinky herb to her heart's content.
