London: Prince William and Kate Middleton recently had a boatful of health food delivered at their island honeymoon hideaway in the Seychelles.

To experience the taste of home food, the royal couple ordered Brussels sprouts, Granny Smith apples, vintage bubbly and quail eggs, packaged ham, Philadelphia cheese, artichoke hearts and marinated anchovy fillets. These were delivered by speedboat to their top-secret getaway.

The arrival of the sprouts could set tongues wagging because girls are advised to eat the green vegetables if they are trying to get pregnant.

To add to the romantic mood, Wills has ordered in a dozen bottles of 1999 Dom Perignon at 120 pounds a pop.

"This is a tropical paradise but both William and Kate wanted to have a taste of home with them - man cannot live on lobster alone,’ the Sun quoted a royal source as saying.

"They asked for some English basics, like the Philadelphia and Granny apples. But they have their luxuries as well," the source added.

The couple has also stocked up on fruit with raspberries, strawberries and blue figs.
