Caroline Stanbury Opens Up About Growing Up in Boarding School: "It Is Traumatic"

Caroline often referenced her strict upbringing on Ladies of London, and now she's revealing more about how it affected her in the long run.

On one episode of Ladies of London, Caroline Stanbury revealed a surprising eating habit at a posh dinner party. "I have one rule: no fruit," said the native Londoner, who's now living in Dubai and newly engaged.  

She then elaborated on her aversion to apples, oranges, and their ilk. "I don't eat fruit," she told the table. "[It's] probably a mental thing. I went to boarding school and they made us eat fruit for breakfast. You couldn't leave your table till you ate the fruit. And so, I used to sit there and gag on my fruit. Ever since then, I've never eaten fruit."  

More recently, Caroline sat down for a Life After Bravo interview, exclusive to Bravo Insider, and shared more details of her "traumatic" time at boarding school. "There are some shocking stories," she says in the video above. "Like, we lined up in the morning to go down to breakfast where the whole school would wait while I ate my fruit, and I'd sort of, like, choke on it because I couldn't bear the fruit they'd given me."
