Queen Elizabeth is said to follow in the footsteps of her great-grandfather King Edward VII with a list of favourite chocolates from Charbonnel et Walker. The sweet treats were revealed on Billion Pound Bond Street as shoppers were taken behind the scenes of one of the most expensive streets in London.
On Thursday’s episode of Billion Pound Bond Street, Adam Lee, chief chocolatier at Charbonnel et Walker divulged: “The Queen does have a list of favourite chocolates with us.
“But I’m not allowed to divulge that directly to you, however, I can just say that she has very floral tastes, which may become evident if we look at the chocolates a little bit later, but maybe we should start with our two most popular chocolates which are rose and violet creams.
“I never said a word, never said a word.”

Adam went on to share secrets about how their best selling confectionery was made with one treat including a £280 box of chocolates.
“King Edward VII, who is our current queen’s great-grandfather…his favourite chocolate was made by Madam Charbonnel in Paris and he persuaded her to come over here,” the expert revealed.
“He was rather well known for having beautiful mistresses and we like to think that maybe that was another side of the story of why she came over here to see him.
“We are so lucky to have Her Majesty’s Royal Warrant.
Store manager Christopher Watney of the flagship Christian Dior store added: “We offer drinks to all of our clients. Any client that comes into the House of Dior.”
As the pandemic put shopping on Bond Street to a stop, the stores are now trying to make as much money as possible to survive and meet the high rents.
Michael Wainwright, who runs British jewellers Boodles, revealed he took a 50 percent pay cut due to the impact of Covid on profits.
Hoping to get profits back up, the company purchased a stunning pink diamond weighing over 10 carats with a value of £3.2million.
