There are some reports going viral that suggested that The Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth consumes up to four drinks a day. Also which would definitely put in her excess of the two to three drink recommended daily limits set by British and American health authorities.
The 91-year-old Queen, Britain’s longest serving monarch, was said to start her drinking before lunch with her favorite cocktail. It’s a gin and Du bonnet. Queen Elizabeth usually then have a glass of wine and martini with lunch and then have a glass of champagne before bed.
It seems that these reports were just rumors and not the truth. Chef Darren McGrady, who worked at Buckingham Palace from 1982 through 1993, said: “there’s no way Queen Elizabeth drinks so much”.
“She’d be pickled if she drank that much. The Queen, after all, maintains a quite hectic schedule. She at least carries out more than 300 engagements in a year. But when Queen Elizabeth drinks, it’s a glass of German sweet wine with dinner or the gin and Du-bonnet with a lemon twist”.
The stories are on the nose about The Queen’s overall diet, which is described as a model of moderation. Queen Elizabeth doesn’t deny herself the pleasure of sweets, but she’s pretty restrained in other ways. Like saying no to potatoes, rice, and other starches with lunch and dinner if she’s dining alone.

According to the reports, Queen Elizabeth is very disciplined like that. She can have anything she wants, but it is that discipline that keeps her so well and so healthy. There are also some reports that say that The Queen is not a fan of garlic. Basically, The Queen’s no foodie.
The Queen is not really bothered about food. All she cares about are her horses and dogs. She eats to live, unlike Prince Philip who loves to eat and would stand and talk food all day.
