As Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday approaches on June 8th, it’s an exciting day ahead as the nation celebrates the birthday of the sixth-longest-reigning British Monarch, when she surpassed her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria. With 66 years as Queen, we’ve all got to admit what the Her Majesty’ The Queen’s diet consists of, and what her day-to-day food intake looks like.
As the Queen’s birthday slowly creeps up on our calendar, we at All Eat have found what the daily diet consists of, so if you’re attempting to replicate this, you could also live like royalty.
Prior to breakfast, the Queen starts her busy day off right – Earl Grey tea (without milk or sugar!) and a handful of biscuits. Afterwards, roll on breakfast. This would typically consists of cereal with fruit which Special K, with the Queen taking a liking to have her cereal served in a Tupperware, as it helps to keep it fresh.
At other times, the Queen will opt for toast and marmalade (I don’t blame her, it really is that delicious) which, in my opinion, helps to kick start the morning off right with a naturally sweet boost. Alternatively, Elizabeth has also taken a liking to scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and truffle – if that were me, it’d feel like Sunday brunch everyday (not complaining, though).
Before lunch, the Queen enjoys the odd sip of a glass of gin and Dubonnet (sweet wine-based aperitif), accompanied by ice with a lemon garnish to top it off – sounds great, really.
As far as lunch goes, the Queen has two options: either grilled Dover sole along with wilted spinach or courgettes, whilst the latter option being a simple, yet delicious grilled chicken with salad. The ‘no starch’ rule applies here, and this translates to the elimination of potatoes, rice, or even pasta.
Iconic. The fact that the Queen will make no exception and have Afternoon Tea incorporated in her daily schedule regardless of what’s happening in the world is the definition of Queen. In it, includes fingers sandwiches such as smoked salmon, cucumber, egg and mayonnaise as well as jam pennies (yum). Along with these, choices offered also include tea biscuits, scones and cakes.
This is where we see the Royal Family’s culinary prowess in action. Brace yourselves. For dinner, the Queen enjoys fillets of beef or venison, pheasant or salmon come from farms in Sandringham and Balmoral. Served in a mushroom, cream and whiskey sauce, the Queen also enjoys a typically well-made Sunday roast, when served well done.
But most importantly, the Queen enjoys a glass of Champagne to call it a day and honestly, I admire that.
