I was wondering if Will went home and asked the cook (I cannot remember her name right now) to fix fried chicken for supper!

Yes, I know it's not at all healthy but once or twice a year I fix real fried chicken.

Her name is Antonella Fresolone and she is from Italy.



Thank you! I remembered that she was from Italy and makes homemade pasta for them.

I love the idea that as thin as Kate is she enjoys a bit of pasta. I mean if you have an Italian cook they probably have nice typical dishes mixed in with English fare and the usual hybrid stuff we all seem to be eating these days.

Americans have a love-hate relationship with carbs and completely ignore the fact that europeans with their staple foods of bread (every time I consider low carb I change my mind in a german bakery!) and pastas and potatoes, have less problems with obesity than americans.
I adore italian food. The vegetables are devine, olive oil, antipastas: just gorgeous.
I bet that the italian chef has recipes galore that not only fill you up nicely, but also have a plethora of fantastic veggies and tastes..

they are likely a lot more aware of proper portion size and exercise.  Something that is sorely lacking in this country (US).

Exactly, I noticed when traveling in Italy, the restaurant meals were fantastic but the serving was for normal people not giants!

I've read stories of homeowners of older homes (Pre WWII) who complain about how narrow their kitchen cupboard shelves are and that the plates won't fit. The shelves didn't shrink in width, our plates became larger along with our waistlines.

I have to eat GF, but I definitely love carbs. I also work my ass off on the elliptical.  Sadly not many of my fellow countrymen do.

I laugh when people tell me about fat Italians. My Italian relatives are mostly normal weight, and eat lots of fruit and vegetables along with reasonably sized portions of pasta. They also have salad last, and seldom eat a heavy dessert. Last time I was in Italy, I marveled at the older women in heels with normal sized ankles. This might seem like a strange observation, but when you look at many older Americans, ankles and calves are swollen and mobility is compromised. I have to think it’s lack of activity and the ensuing diseases that makes them this way. It’s very sad and pretty much of an epidemic here.

Anyway, I hope the Cambridges enjoy lots of good Italian meals and the occasional fried chicken treat.

Talking about housekeepers...seems like Antonella is getting an assistant.  I'm actually really happy about this as I've always felt that they understaff of what is needed to keep their homes running and "allow" them to be FT royals.  IIRC this will bring them up to 6 domestic staff (2 housekeepers at each property, a gardener at Anmer, and Nanny Maria).  I would like to see them add possibly 3 more...another nanny so they can operate a Rota system which would allow for more travel (especially last minute) without requiring Mike and Carole's involvement*, possibly a valet for William, and possibly a dresser for Kate.  Depending on who does their garden at KP this would bring them to 9 domestic staff (10 with a KP gardener)...a perfectly reasonable number given their position.

*Not that they're not welcome but William and Kate's childcare shouldn't be overly reliant on their support...especially as William and Kate take on more duties...and as Pippa/James and James/Alizée grow their families possibly needing Mike and Carole's support...and as Mike (currently 71) and Carole (currently 65) age.

That’s so cute.  Just to note that the kids started their term break last Friday so they probably did this from Anmer Hall.

Very true, but not only that. I have neighbours (pre-corona) that would have driven into the supermarket across the street if they could have to buy groceries. It's daily exercise as well, and I don't talk about the gym.

I also think it has to do with if you live in an area where you walk everywhere. I noticed that people in Edinburgh and Glasgow are thinner than those who live in Inverness. If you mainly use your feet as transport, you'll naturally be thinner. I didn't notice a big diff between British serving sizes and American. I've never been to Italy (want to!) so can't speak about that.
