Truly Bizarre Things That Queen Elizabeth II Requires the Royal Family To Do

When you become a part of the royal family, there are some customs that you just have to follow - whether you like it or not. Of course, traditions are passed down through generations, and most of them are pretty logical. But, the queen has made her own set of rules - no matter how senseless they are.

Whether you're hungry or not, the queen is the one who decides when dinner time is over. Once she's taken her last bite, it's absolutely necessary that everyone finishes at the same time.

2. You're not allowed to eat garlic or starches
