Queen cup question

505 5
I have a queen cup with a large amount of royal jelly, does this mean there is an egg or small larvae in there?
The cup looks to be about 1/2 filled with a solid white substance. I cannot see anything else in the cup.

Might want to get you a cheap magnifying glass from the drug store, amazon or walmart, That will help with seeing eggs.
Agree with fivej as well, there may be more qc's in there you missed, they can be harder to spot covered with bees, especially where supercedure cells tend to be mid frame
