He said of meeting the monarch: “Apparently once a month they do it. They pick random people, some in the public eye, some not.

“There was only eight of us for lunch; it was magical.

"I have total respect for the Queen and the royal family. Would you want to do it? No, would you hell. I wouldn't want to do that in a month of Sundays. 

“The only thing I regret is that my grandmother wasn't alive to witness it because she was a huge fan,” the chef added to Hello Magazine.
