Princess Beatrice is switching to a plant-based diet, according to reports.

The Mail On Sunday reported that the royal is planning to throw a plant-based dinner party for her 31st birthday next month.

“She is making the switch and is now doing her research,” a source told the newspaper.

Plant-based food and the royal family

Plant-based food is becoming increasingly popular with younger members of the royal family, according to reports in the mainstream media.

Both Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reportedly eat plant-heavy diets, but there is no evidence to suggest that Markle is herself is actually vegan. Instead, it appears she is flexitarian – she revealed in a 2016 interview that she eats a ‘part-time plant-based diet’. She said: “When I’m filming, I’m conscious of what I eat.

“I try to eat vegan during the week and then have a little bit more flexibility with what I dig into on the weekends. But at the same time, it’s all about balance.”
