Notwithstanding that divinity which doth hedge a monarch, loyal subjects cannot but take an interest in royal kitchens and royal cooks. The public are, of course, not admitted to the Kitchen at Windsor Castle, and must therefore rest content with the view given above. The Kitchen is under the control of the Board of Green Cloth in general, and of the Master of the Household in particular and there are a chief cook, a first master cook, a clerk of the kitchen, etc. As needs must be, when the number of those belonging to the Royal Household is remembered, the Kitchen is of noble size, and a glance at our picture is enough to show how admirable are its appointments.
