Queen nut eating: Guards to keep fingers out of nut bowls, treats are for guests

Queen Elizabeth has given a nut eating restriction for Palace guards, as she wants them to stop sticking their fingers in the nut stuffed bowls set across the royal grounds. These treats are apparently for guests only, and the British queen is a bit miffed that they’ve been eating so many of them behind her back, eCanadaNow reveals this Friday, Dec. 13, 2013.

The Queen nut eating decree is an issue going on at Buckingham Palace, which is well-known for its tradition of setting out nuts dishes for welcomed guests so they can have a convenient bite or two of the salty snack. Yet the royal family leader let out a formal memo after learning that police guard members may be sticking their fingers into nut bowls to chow down instead of protecting Her Majesty and the Palace grounds.

The reason for all of this nut eating on the Queen’s watch, reasonably enough, seems to be that the guards are simply too hungry all the time on long watches. The queen released a formal memo to her police force, saying that guards must keep their hands away from the bowls, as those nuts are for guests only on the grounds.

According to a statement on the Queen nut eating policy, as given by the source:

“The problems regarding unchecked nut consumption at the Palace recently came to light during the trial of certain News of the World editors and the stories they were working on in 2005 when the incident occurred. The nuts are specifically intended for guests. Editor Clive Goodman told his boss Andy Coulson about the incident in anemail about possible stories he was working, prosecutor Andrew Edis told the jury before reading them the message.

“’(There is) something about the behavior of the police which has upset the Queen, who are apparently helping themselves to the nuts and the like that are left out at the Palace,” Edis quoted the email as saying.’”

Maybe this memo will put an end to the Queen's nut eating issues she's been facing lately.
