The Queen's favorite chocolates have been revealed and her fans are delighted that HRH seems to keep the three brands within reaching distance!
Fans noticed the boxes of chocolates in adorable snaps in photos taken during an official engagement at Windsor Castle. Her Majesty received Rear Admiral James Macleod and Major General Eldon Millar—the soon-to-be-former Defence Services Secretary and his successor.
One Twitter user commented, "I can’t help being nosy and seeing that her Majesty is well supplied for chocolates there, including #fortnumandmason champagne truffles and #Bendicksmints."
Another added, "So nice to see, that her Majesty obviously loves spring and the Bendicks Mint Collection!"
Although it's unclear whether she shared any of her confectionaries with the gentlemen, what is clear is the common thread between the brands of chocolates.

One Twitter user spotted that all three iconic brands have received Her Majesty's personal, and official seal of approval! Two boxes of @Fortnums chocolates. Centre box of Bendicks (Mayfair) Ltd Mint Chcolate. 1 (white with blue ribbon) box of @Charbonnel confectionary. All have royal warrants by ‘Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen’ 👑 of🍫."
According to the Royal Family's website (opens in new tab), "A Royal Warrant of Appointment is granted as a mark of recognition to people or companies who have regularly supplied goods or services to HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh or HRH The Prince of Wales or their Households."
The ultimate Royal seal of approval! However, they also assert that these warrants can be removed if the brands/companies in question don't keep their output up to scratch.
So if you want to indulge in sweet treats fit for an actual Queen—treat yourself to a box of one of Her Majesty's favorites.
