If you haven’t already heard, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is currently pregnant with her third child. Sure, she may be royalty, but when it comes to pregnancy, she’s just like everyone else: having weird cravings and spats of morning sickness.

At the beginning of her pregnancy, it was revealed that the Duchess suffers from hyperemesis gravidarum (a severe form of morning sickness). Dealing with severe morning sickness isn’t new for her—she’s had to handle severe nausea and food hypnotherapy with her pregnancies in the past. According to SELF, she tries to combat it with a strict plant-forward diet. The diet specifically includes avocados, berries, and oatmeal. These simple foods help soothe her severe morning sickness. Not pregnant or royal? Here are a few reasons you might want to consider a plant-based diet.

But like most pregnant woman, there are always a few odd cravings to deal with, and the Duchess is no exception. At one point, the royal sent her husband Prince William to grab a jar of pickles for her. She specifically asked that the pickles be cut into thin slices and served on well-done toast. The Prince sent for this specific order right away, only to find out that the kitchen didn’t even have pickles to serve! Nevertheless, a quick delivery was made and the Duchess’ pregnancy cravings were satisfied. Here are even more bizarre eating habits of the royal family.

Now, there are only a few weeks left until Kate Middleton will be able to enjoy all of her favorite foods again. Maybe she’ll even join Queen Elizabeth for some of her meals.
