Forget the tight-lipped tradition of past royal family members; Prince Harry tends to be an open book. He’s brave enough to get real about tough issues like coping with his mother’s death, for one. Plus, he is certainly not shy about showing affection for his girlfriend—and rumored future fiancée—Meghan Markle. But a recent revelation has us second-guessing everything we thought we knew about the fifth in line for the throne.
Truthfully, there is a lot we don’t know about this fiery-haired royal. (Including the fact that Harry’s not actually his real name!) But when it comes to his taste in food, even enthusiasts would have never guessed his one controversial preference.
During a trip to a nature reserve in the English county of Lancashire, Prince Harry watched a group of teens participate in several classic camping activities, including roasting marshmallows over a campfire. However, the royal declined making one for himself. “I’ve never toasted marshmallows over a campfire. They’re too sweet for me,” he admitted.
How could this be? We have one guess: His mother might have something to do with it. Princess Diana was known for her commitment to healthy eating, former royal chef Darren McGrady revealed last year. Perhaps she kept a few sweet treats off of her kids’ plates—including these sugary puffs. (Find out how Princes William and Harry are keeping their mother’s legacy alive.)
This isn’t the most controversial stance Prince Harry has taken, though. According to Prince Harry, none of his family members truly want to be king or queen.
