Celebrated royal chef Richard Corrigan has cooked for the Queen as well as other members of the Royal Family, many of which have enjoyed his food free of charge. However, the owner of Mayfair Restaurants Bentley’s and Corrigan’s doesn’t appear keen on the idea of slaving away over a hot stove for Meghan.
He told Richard Eden, Daily Mail’s Diary Editor, that while some royals have enjoyed his food for free, some will have to pay.
In an article, Mr Eden said: “Celebrated chef Richard Corrigan has prepared food for the Royal Family, but does not appear keen to toil over a hot stove for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
“Asked if he’d cook for Meghan, the owner of Mayfair restaurants Bentley’s and Corrigan’s tells me: ‘I cooked for the Queen free of charge, of course. And I’ll cook for anyone, but let me just say, some people will have to pay.
“I’d let her in the restaurant, for sure, but the Queen had the red carpet rolled out. Would Meghan? I don’t think so.”
Now it is being reported that the acclaimed chef, who also previously acted as a guest cook on the South West round of the Great British Menu, has come under fire for his remarks from Meghan and Harry fans.
Mr Eden tweeted that the celebrated restaurateur had dealt with “a weekend of online abuse and accusations of racism”.
He added this was “for daring to say he wouldn’t want to cook for the Duchess of Sussex free of charge”.
He added: “What is wrong with #PrinceHarry and #Meghan’s fans?…
