Charles III bans foie gras from his royal residences

Charles III bans foie gras from his royal residences

No more foie gras in Buckingham: King Charles III banned the dish from the tables of royal residences, according to a letter from the palace sent to PETA.

Charles, who has long advocated nature protection, organic farming and combating climate change, is said to have been a staunch opponent of foie gras.

“Thank you for your letter about ethical issues related to foie gras,” the master of the King’s house wrote to the PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) association, in a letter, a copy of which was obtained by AFP on Friday.

Sir Tony Johnston-Burt continued in this letter dated 10 November: “I can confirm that foie gras is not bought by the Royal Family or served at the Royal Residences and that this policy is not expected to change.”

Buckingham Palace did not respond to requests from AFP.

Elizabeth II, who died on September 8, greatly appreciated foie gras. Duck liver was served at a state dinner in Paris in June 2014 with former President François Hollande.

As a thank you to the king, Pita sends him a box of foo gras, served at vegan chef Alexis Gauthier’s London restaurant. PETA “encourages everyone to follow the King’s example and not eat foie gras on and after Christmas,” the association wrote in a statement.

Foie gras, considered a delicacy and often eaten at Christmas, can currently be imported and sold in the UK, but is not produced in the country.
