Queen Elizabeth II is 91 years old, and she looks pretty damn good for 91. Turns out there may be a reason why The Queen doesn’t look a day over 86, and it could be that her insides are preserved like an expertly aged jar of pickles from all the booze she drinks. Based on zero research, of course. I’m just going with what I know: that wine is basically a health elixir, and that a human gut can only take so many cream-based party coolers (those do no favors for no body).
Business Insider (via Travel + Leisure) has a list of all the things The Queen likes to eat and drink in a day. She eats normal British stuff: tea and biscuits, toast and marmalade, tea sandwiches. If her daily diet was one of her grandkids, it might be Prince William. Her daily cocktail list on the other hand is a little more Prince Harry.
According to the report, The Queen has four drinks a day. The Queen allegedly starts before noon with a Dubonnet and gin with a slice of lemon. Booze on booze? What a champ. Then she has a glass of wine at lunch. Then during lunch she has a dry gin martini. I’ll be honest, it sounds like The Queen has three drinks at lunch. Get wild, QEII!
After dinner, she has a glass of champagne. I knew The Queen was classy, but champagne after dinner every night of the week classy? Goodness gracious, no wonder she wears a crown and pearls when she leaves the house.
What the report fails to mention is how many drinks The Queen slams back after Prince Philip does something embarrassing. Or maybe she takes care of that by summoning a corgi to fetch her best bong.
