The Queen of England Drinks Champagne Every Day

Queen Elizabeth II, 90, finishes each day with a glass of expensive bubbly, according to a recent investigation

When you’re the Queen of England, you can eat and drink whatever you desire. Never one to shirk her responsibility as representative of the royal palate, Queen Elizabeth II, 90, enjoys a glass of Champagne every evening, according to a recent report by Business Insider. Her preferred brands are Bollinger, Krug, Lanson, and Pol Roger.

As for her other daily dietary concerns, although Her Majesty is fairly disciplined when it comes to her plate (no starch, and she prefers eating salads with grilled fish and chicken), she has a penchant for chocolate (especially chocolate mousse and sponge cake). Unlike her husband, Prince Phillip, Queen Elizabeth II is no foodie, and prefers simpler foods overall.

The nightly glass of Champagne before retiring to her bedchamber is not the only alcohol the Queen indulges in daily — she also reportedly enjoys a gin and Dubonnet (a sweet, wine-based aperitif) with a slice of lemon on the rocks daily before lunch.

The queen is reportedly not a huge fan of wine, but it is kept in the palace, of course.
