What does the Queen eat for breakfast? You WON’T believe the answer
Queen Elizabeth II is a creature of habit, following a strict schedule when it comes to her food, drink and work. But what does the Queen eat for breakfast?
The Queen enjoys a well-scheduled routine, starting the day early and following a pattern when it comes to foods. As the Queen, some might expect her to enjoy lavish dining with expensive ingredients. However, the monarch often opts for foods readily available in the average supermarket – so what does she eat for her breakfast every morning?
What does the Queen have for breakfast?
According to BT, the Queen starts her day with a freshly brewed pot of Earl Grey tea, with no milk or sugar in a bone china cup.
This is accompanied by a few biscuits.
Then after a bath, the Queen is served her breakfast which usually involves cereal and fruit.
According to The Telegraph, her cereal of choice is Special K, which is stored in plastic yellow Tupperware as the Queen believes it to keep cereal fresh.
The Tupperware is even delivered to the Queen on her breakfast tray so she can pour her bowl of Special K herself.
While the Queen enjoys her cereal Prince Philip likes to listen to his Roberts radio during his breakfast that includes two types of marmalade – light and dark – as well as a carton of yoghurt.
Former Royal Chef Darren McGrady told Marie Claire: “Breakfast was very simple for Her Majesty.
“Some Kellogg’s cereal from a plastic container, which she’d serve herself. And some Darjeeling tea.”
Kellogg’s, Quaker Oats and Weetabix all hold royal warrants.
A royal warrant is issued by members of the Royal Family to products or businesses that supply to the royal family for more than five years.
British products of high excellence and quality place the royal coat of arms of whichever member of the royal family awarded it onto their packaging.
This honour isn’t just awarded to food; clothing shops, tradesmen, and entertainment businesses can also be granted a Warrant.
Among food brands with a Royal Warrant are luxury chocolate makers Charbonnel et Walker, and pantry staples Heinz.
Occasionally the Queen chooses to have toast and marmalade or scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and truffle.
Although only brown eggs as according to The Guardian, she believes they taste better.
Every afternoon the Queen also takes afternoon tea, served with fingers sandwiches such as cucumber, smoked salmon, egg and mayonnaise, or ham and mustard with the crusts removed.
She also enjoys jam pennies — tiny raspberry jam sandwiches cut into circles the size of an English Penny.
It also comes with McVitie’s rich tea biscuits, scones, and cakes – the Queen’s favourites being honey and cream sponge, ginger, fruit, and chocolate biscuit cake.
For dinner, the Queen often dines on fillets of beef or venison, pheasant, or salmon which are brought from farms in Sandringham and Balmoral.
