Mr Corrigan, owner of Mayfair restaurants Bentley’s and Corrigan’s, told the Mail about the time he provided Her Majesty with a meal for free.
He said: "I cooked for the Queen free of charge, of course. And I’ll cook for anyone, but let me just say, some people will have to pay.
“I’d let her in the restaurant, for sure, but the Queen had the red carpet rolled out. Would Meghan? I don’t think so.”
One Twitter user said: “As if Meghan would want to forgo California cuisine for some British food! I'm not sure if the idea of a “British Chef” isn’t an oxymoron.”
As another commented: “Here is an unprofessional chef, saying the only member of the RF he would not cook for is Harry & Meghan.
"Let that sink in!!!!! WHY? Did they ask for a free meal? Does he feel they can't pay for their meal? I'm sure there are better restaurants for Harry & Meghan to frequent.”
