A very special piece of paper: Prince Harry's note from Princess Diana

In an interview with the Sunday Times, Carolyn Robb (53), who worked as a personal chef for Princess Diana at Kensington Palace from 1989 onwards, revealed that Prince Harry was allowed to eat mini treacle tarts for breakfast when he was young. As Harry loved the tarts so much she used to keep a back-up batch in the freezer at all times for him. One day, Harry visited the kitchen asking for a treacle tart bearing a note written by Princess Diana stating, "Mummy says it's okay!".

Carolyn also revealed in the interview that both Prince William (36) and Prince Harry (34) were "very easy to cook for" as they "loved simple things" like salads and shuffles. However, they also both had a very sweet tooth and so she would sneak biscuits and flapjacks into their school lunchboxes.
