Foie gras translates as “fatty liver” in English. The gourmet dish, which is made as a result of a liver disease called fatty liver, is widely known as one of the most expensive delicacies in the world.

Carolyn Robb, a former royal chef, spoke to Channel 5 about why the then-Prince Charles banned the divisive dish.

She said: “Foie gras was something we never served in the royal household, [Prince] Charles is very interested in promoting good animal husbandry.

“Obviously he was very much against the way Foie Gras is produced. All those things that involved any kind of cruelty or mistreatment of animals.”
