Queen Elizabeth II Has Been Revealed As A Binge Drinker- She’s Not Planning To Slow Down At 91

At the ripe old age of 91, Queen Elizabeth II is showing no signs of slowing down which, according to some reports this week, also stands true for her drinking habits.

The internet was sent into a flutter after an interview surfaced which seemed to suggest the Queen fell into the category of “binge drinker” by British government standards, downing multiple tipples a day.

It was widely reported Her Majesty begins her day with a gin and Dubonnet before lunch, a wine with lunch, followed by a glass of champagne and a dry martini in the evening.Image result for queen elizabeth a binge drinker

That would amount to six standard drinks a day, double the recommended maximum intake.

But former royal chef Darren McGrady, whose interview was behind the media fluster, has since explained he was misunderstood.

Mr McGrady, who worked with the Queen from 1982 to 1993, told CNN his heavy accent and quick speaking was to blame.

“Gin and Dubonnet” was mistaken for “gin in the morning”, and through Chinese whispers resulted in reports of “a gin and Dubonnet in the morning”.

“She’d be pickled if she drank that much…She doesn’t wake up in the morning and have a large gin and tonic,” he said.

“She certainly doesn’t drink four glasses a day.”

However, Mr McGrady told CNN she does enjoy a wine with dinner every now and then – just with a little more moderation than some first believed.
