There are people who think so. But royal jelly and honey are completely different things.

Royal jelly is produced in the body of worker bees using pollen, nectar and honey as ingredients, and is then secreted as food for the queen bee. The color is milky white and has a strong acidity.
The Queen bee and the worker bee are genetically the same at the larval stage.
Their food is also the same up to three days after hatching.

Even after becoming a queen bee, she will receive royal jelly from young worker bees by mouth to mouth.
