Before that biopic of Princess Diana Spencer Released in late 2021, there are few questions about the much-loved Princess of Wales.Although podcasts, books, musicals and documentaries — many of which have been released in the past five years — insist Can’t wait and more to learn about one of the most overt women in pop culturepretty much everything we know about the People’s Princess already exists, especially the fact that she loves to wear bike shorts and sweatshirts.

Still, Kristen Stewart movies tend to spark interest because Kristen Stewart is in them, and Spencer More of a psychological hallucination than a historical artifact, there appears to be a new addition to Diana’s canon that appeals to many American audiences — mostly to watch Spencer Blindly criticizing Kristen Stewart’s British accent – caught off guard.

Why are there so many repeated references to organic food?

Another question you may have is “Why does someone write Spencer Now, a few months after the movie came out? The answer is that the Oscars are this Sunday and Kristen Stewart is nominated for Best Actress. Now back to organic vegetables.

Much of the film takes place in and around the kitchen at Queen’s Sandrigham Palace, where the royal family was spending the 1991 Christmas break. Deliberately focusing on Diana’s eating disorder, and the callousness with which the royal family treated her (about that and everything else). She finds friendship in her royal dresser and kitchen chef Darren McGrady, who lashes out at his kitchen staff throughout the film Promotes wartime clichés and lists all the delicacies the royal family will eat for dinner.

“Organic carrots. Please be careful which box we get the carrots from because he’ll check,” McGrady told the staff, where “he” was Prince Charles. “Parsnips – organic again. Finally, a selection of sweet and savory organic cookies. Organic cookies from…?”

“Highgrove, cook,” the staff replied.

To the average consumer, especially in the U.S., the word “organic” feels like it’s only been in the past decade or fifteen years that it has become a popular part of the food lexicon. It turns out: According to a paper published by Oxford University’s Institute for Social and Cultural Anthropology, between 2001 and 2011, the amount of farmland dedicated to organic farming increased 2.3-fold globally. While he cannot take full responsibility for global development, Prince Charles was one of the early adopters of organic farming. You bet he’ll check those carrots.

In 1985, exactly six years before Stewart’s Diana eats a bowl of pearls at a Christmas dinner (we hope only in the movies), Charles converted his Principality Manor farm at Highgrove Estate to be all organically grown method, sparking controversy and contempt for the British public, media and farmers who see him as a retrograde Luddite. (His statement about talking to plants was torn up by the tabloids.) More than two decades later, when organic farming and food became more accessible and a more popular eco-conscious option, Charles had time in the sun to say “I Told you” to all his early skeptics:

“Hundreds of varieties have been lost,” Reuters 2007 report An interview with the BBC. “…the wonderful things that our ancestors worked so hard to develop, and in many cases, resistant to all sorts of prevalent diseases.

“That’s why I’ve been laughing at the importance of protecting and preserving rare native breeds of cattle, sheep, pigs and chickens all these years.

“And sure enough, now, amazingly, they’re starting to come back. But the madness we’ve done with the world — madness.”

It’s not clear why it’s so important to have Charles’ focus on organic food in a film where he’s not the focus (perhaps to showcase another type of food stress that Diana struggles with). But it does reveal another thing about who Princess Diana dealt with during her marriage: someone who was very right about something — and then liked to act unimpressed about it. It’s a universally relevant thing, whether you’re a princess or a pauper.
