Queen Elizabeth II has been the reigning monarch of the United Kingdom for almost 69 years now, and she’s 95 years old. This lady still looks amazing for her age and still remains in power. Up until the pandemic hit she was still doing all of her royal duties and royal visits. It’s kind of incredible how Queen Elizabeth has been around for so long, perhaps her diet is the secret to her longevity and health? Let’s take a look at exactly what the Queen eats. We bet you’re going to be surprised by her royal meals.
People have a lot of weird misconceptions when it comes to royal diets. Some believe that royals probably overindulge on a daily basis because, you know, they can. Others think that royals eat healthily but extravagantly because they have personal chefs. A lot of people imagine royalty eating caviar, exotic meats, and seafood and some of the most indulgent desserts on the daily. Perhaps that is true for other royals, but Queen Elizabeth’s diet is far from that. In fact, the Queen has a perfect discipline and eats very healthy meals, one might even consider her eating habits to be quite strict.
The Queen always starts her day with a nice cup of tea. She doesn’t add milk or sugar to her tea, she just Earl Grey tea and a couple of cookies (or as the Brits call them — biscuits). You might think biscuits are a treat, but considering she could have French toast, croissants, or anything else in the world, biscuits seem a rather reserved option.
Speaking of pastry, many would imagine the Queen being a fan of scones. After all, they are a very traditional British pastry, but the Queen never eats it. In fact, she often feeds the scones to her beloved corgis, under the table.
Her choice of breakfast will surprise you too, the Queen loves cereal. And as much as we’d love to imagine Lizzie munching down on some Lucky Charms or Fruit Loops, she prefers a low-calorie Special K. On some days the Queen treats herself to toast with some marmalade. And whenever she has a guest over for breakfast she will go for scrambled eggs with salmon.
