Last month, Queen Elizabeth II celebrated 65 years on the throne. That’s more than enough time for anyone to get settled into a job—let alone into a routine. So it’s no huge surprise that when it comes to food, the 90-year-old Queen of England knows what she likes.
For breakfast, the Queen generally eats cereal, according to an article published in The Telegraph. She particularly likes Special K and Corn Flakes, and usually dines alone at 9:00 a.m. The Queen sometimes adds macadamia nuts or dried fruit, like apricots, into her cereal as well. Other days, she’ll opt for toast with marmalade instead.
Despite this carbohydrate-heavy start to the day, Queen Elizabeth eschews starches like potatoes. For lunch, the Queen often dines on a light meal of grilled fish over a bed of spinach. Dinner is usually pretty similar, although game from her various properties is used whenever it is available. Balmoral, one of the Queen’s official residences, is often a good source of venison. More recently, Prince Charles is said to have exposed his parents to the merits of organic food (although his father, Prince Philip, who is of course married to the Queen, was said to be initially skeptical.)
The Queen is also a big chocolate fan, although she tends to indulge in the treat not after dinner, but during what is her third meal of the day—afternoon tea. Her other favorite treat for the daily ritual is a jam penny. (Jam pennies are simply small jam sandwiches cut into the size of an old English penny.) The Queen’s sweet tooth also extends to puddings (white peach pudding is said to be her favorite). She’s also known to request scones, but will often just feed the crumbs to her beloved dogs.
In the evening, the Queen generally enjoys a gin and Dubonnet cocktail. As for whether she enjoys her own sparkling wine, made on the property of Windsor Castle? Well, we may never know.
