Queen Elizabeth knows the secret to longevity. The 91-year-old monarch hasn’t worked a day in her life. And she drinks “four alcoholic beverages a day.”
Her former personal chef is sharing the Queen’s drink preferences. Around Buckingham Palace it's always 5 O’clock.
After breakfast Darren McGrady poured her a gin cocktail. He said that she enjoyed wine with lunch. Then chased it with a dry martini.
Queen Elizabeth had strict dietary rules for dinner: No starches and no garlic. She rarely drank at dinner, but was served champagne with dessert. Her sweet tooth is notorious.
