Queen Elizabeth the II is a binge drinker: report

Queen Elizabeth II downs 4 drinks per day.

The 91-year-old British sovereign’s day of tippling begins in the morning, when she downs a gin and Dubonnet cocktail with lemon and ice, former royal chef Darren McGrady said, according to Travel+Leisure magazine.

Next, the queen enjoys a glass of wine or champagne with her lunch — which is usually a fish dish, such as grilled Dover sole with spinach, or a simple piece of grilled chicken, according to reports.

“She loves it,” McGrady said of the champagne, according to the magazine.

Her Royal Highness again hits the bottle at the end of the day, as she unwinds in the evening with a dry martini and a glass of champagne, the queen’s late cousin Margaret Rhodes has said, according to Travel+Leisure.

The four drinks technically add up to six units of alcohol, which makes the queen a binge drinker by British “government standards,” according to The Independent.
