[size=18]Coronation Chicken[/size]

Coronation chicken is a combination of herbs and spices, with precooked cold chicken meat and a creamy mayonnaise-based sauce. Normally a bright yellow colour, Coronation Chicken is traditionally flavoured with curry powder or sauce. It is generally used to fill sandwiches and rolls in the United Kingdom.

It was first created by Constance Spry and Rosemary Hume for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. After the Coronation on 2 June 1953 a Coronation Banquet was held at Buckingham Palace. This dish was amongst those served, and the name and recipe are still in popular use.

[size=18]Jubilee Chicken[/size]

A dish which mixed the chicken in mayonnaise and curry. It was prepared for the silver jubilee of George V in 1935.
Furthermore, following in this pattern, for the Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee in 2004, another celebratory dish was devised, also called Jubilee Chicken.

[size=18]"The Royal Disease"[/size]

Haemophilia was once popularly called "the royal disease" because it figured prominently in the history of European royalty.

Queen Victoria passed the mutation to her son Leopold and, through several of her daughters, to various royals across the continent, including the royal families of Spain, Germany and Russia.

The particular way of wearing a small, pointed beard is called an Imperial, after Napoleon III. Maybe our beloved Grand Duke would be so kind as to regale us with a photo?  :D

Well you really do live & learn. It sounds horrendously painful for everyone - the more so the more you think about it (perhaps it's best not to   :o )
Surely it wasn't named after THE Prince Albert who is my idol...No, never... :-/

(Thought I'd better change that!)

[size=18]Prince Albert Piercing[/size]

It is a form of body piercing that pierces the penis from the outside of the frenulum and into the urethra.

The Prince Albert piercing is apparently named after Queen Victoria's consort Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. It is alleged that he wore a ring attached to his penis which was then strapped to his thigh, in order to maintain the smooth line of the tight trousers that were in fashion at the time.
It is very difficult to ascertain the validity of this story. No contemporary account of him adopting the practice has come to light, and many suspect that it was a myth invented by Doug Malloy who was chiefly responsible for popularising body piercing in the USA.
It has also been suggested that the name actually refers to Queen Victoria's grandson Prince Albert Victor. This theory probably stems from attempts to link Prince Albert Victor with the Jack the Ripper murders.

[Of course, I can't post a photo of it - Forum rules!]

No no no! Not EDDY! Anyone with even the remotest idea of his character would know it clearly wasn't him. And since he's my favorite, I have to stand up for him! Love Eddy....

Esteemed Grand Duke, thank you for posting this information about the piercing! Fascinating!

[size=18]Prince of Wales Check[/size]

The original of which was made for Edward VII when he was Prince of Wales. It is actually a very large check with a repeat of nine inches in bold red or brown on a cream ground with a grey overcheck.
However, a misunderstanding arose when Edward, Duke of Windsor, became the Prince of Wales and he favoured a black and white Glen Urquhart check and the two designs became confused in many people's minds.

Omniscient & indescribably lovely Grand Duke (swoon icon  ;)) PLEASE alter your, 'I AM SAD' to 'I AM ADORABLE.'  It would be much more apt.
Did you find any more out about the potatoes & cigars? (I'm still recovering from my beloved Prince Albert's alleged piercings! More appropriate to the previously mentioned Peter, surely  :-/ )

I found the potatoes and cigars pictures but nothing about why they were named for. I will search more...
