Queen Elizabeth II news: Christmas food hamper contains foie gras ‘a sign of class’


Fortnum & Mason’s “Sovereign Hamper” costs an unbelievable £2,500, although not at much as the new product, the Imperial Hamper at £6,000.

Former royal butler Paul Burrell, who worked in the British Royal Household and latterly as a butler to Princess Diana, spoke on Channel 4’s A Very Royal Christmas: Sandringham Secrets.

He said: “The Queen’s royal Christmas hamper, of course, comes from the Queen’s greengrocers, Fortnum & Mason in Piccadilly.

“It’s like an Aladdin’s Cave really.”

He described the famous hamper and said: “There is everything from turkey and ham, and foie gras.”

Foie gras, of course, is controversial because it is made by force-feeding ducks.

Paul added the hamper includes “Champagne and claret” and “chocolates and goodies to eat after dinner.”
