With regular visits to towns with local parlours and events hosting ice cream vendors, some could even argue it's a perk of the job. While one would assume finger food is not very royal, even the likes of the Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Beatrice, and the Duchess of Cornwall have been known to tuck into a Mr. Whippy.

Whether you call it a '99', a 'Mr Whippy' or a 'cornet', there's no denying this is an elite summer treat. Along with her love for fish and chips by the seaside, Duchess Camilla can often be seen tucking into a Mr. Whippy on a hot day.
