The news was announced on the Royal Family’s Instagram account. The quiche shall be known as ‘Coronation Quiche.’ The dish is quite simple, with a mix of spinach, broad beans, cheese and tarragon.

The King and Queen Consort personally chose the recipe and are encouraging the public to prepare for the street parties on May 6 for King Charles and Queen Camilla’s coronation. However, it would seem that not everyone is feeling the joyous occasion and have various complaints, similar to when King Charles' coronation invite.

A quiche is not a good choice for a coronation dish

When the announcement was made, many flooded the comments both on Twitter and Instagram to share their dismay. It seems that for some, a quiche is a poor choice for a coronation dish and rather ‘embarrassing.’

Others have pointed out that the King has chosen an egg-based dish when there is currently an egg shortage in both the UK and the US. As some have pointed out, it appears that the Royal Family is showing a lack of understanding of the public's current situation.
