The Queen has launched her own line of condimentsa tomato sauce and a brown sauce, which will be sold in Sandringham's gift shop. 

If you've ever wondered what the Queen eats, her latest line of condiments could give you a clue. The gift shop at the Queen's Sandringham estate has just announced two new additions to their offerings—a royally approved tomato ketchup and a brown sauce.

The sauces come complete with a royal estate logo on them, plus a hefty price tag.

Last year the shop launched its Sandringham gin, with botanicals from the Queen's garden. While the shop also sells a variety of other foods—including jams, ciders, and biscuits. 

However, this is the first time the shop has sold the royally approved ketchup and brown sauce—perfect for a fry-up or bacon sarnie. The label of the tomato ketchup calls it 'a real family favorite' and 'vibrant and fruity' - while it also notes that it has a light spice to it. 

Despite the Queen's very surprising dinner table rule she is said to enjoy a venison burger occasionally - so maybe this is the ketchup or brown sauce she likes to add to it. 

However, the sauces don't come cheap, so you'll have to use them sparingly - with both the tomato ketchup and brown sauce priced at £6.99 for a 2.95g glass bottle of the sauce.

The Queen has never revealed her favorite meal but is said to enjoy the traditional English takeaway of Fish and Chips now and again, especially when she is staying in Balmoral, with a footman ordering them from a local town. 

However, there are a few things that the Queen doesn't eat. Royal chef Darren McGrady, who worked at Buckingham Palace for more than 15 years confirmed that Her Majesty doesn't enjoy eating garlic or onions. While her Her Majesty doesn't eat too much pasta or rice or potatoes as she prefers to stay away from starchy foods.
