WHEN you are the Queen and live in a castle, life is certainly not normal – and that includes the way Her Majesty eats her sandwiches.
Former royal butler Grant Harrold revealed the correct way is to actually use cutlery.
Speaking in a video, he explained: “Ladies and gentlemen, please remember that when you are presented with a sandwich as beautiful as this, it can be quite substantial and we are not anacondas.
“So therefore you pick up your knife and cut a little bit off and that bit is easier to manage.”
This is also the case for burgers.
He explained: “When eating a burger we use a knife and fork.

“We never use our hands, unless, of course, you are Fred Flintstone.”
He also advised to eat cake with a fork as we are “not vultures.”
Grant worked for Prince Charles from 2004 until 2011 and is now a regular guest on TV shows such as This Morning and Good Morning Britain.
The former butler brands himself as Britain’s leading “Royal etiquette expert” and he trains butlers and housekeepers in the UK.

On his website, Mr Harrold describes “The Royal Butler” as a “persona” which he uses to teach people how to behave and act as ladies and gentlemen.
He cites appearances on the Real Housewives of Cheshire and The Miss Holland Show as uses of this character on TV.
