The Queen's favourite chocolates have been revealed as the floral creams from posh chocolatier Charbonnel et Walker.

In the new ITV documentary Billion Pound Bond Street, Adam Lee, chief chocolatier at Charbonnel et Walker can't help but let out the sweet secret.

He says: “The Queen does have a list of favourite chocolates with us.

"I never said a word, never said a word."
