95-Year-Old Queen Elizabeth ‘Ordered to Quit Drinking’
Royal doctors have ‘ordered the Queen to stop drinking.’
Her Majesty, who is in good physical health and has been seen using a walking stick during recent engagements in Wales for no apparent medical reason, has allegedly been advised to limit her consumption of alcohol to special occasions due to her busy autumn schedule.
Doctors have also offered the advise ahead of the king’s Platinum Jubilee festivities next June, according to two individuals close to the monarch published in a magazine.
‘The Queen has been told to give up her evening drink which is usually a martini,’ a family friend is said to have told Vanity Fair’s Katie Nicholl. ‘It’s not really a big deal for her, she is not a big drinker but it seems a trifle unfair that at this stage in her life she’s having to give up one of very few pleasures.’
The monarch is rarely seen drinking in public but according to palace sources, just like her son Prince Charles, her alcoholic beverage of choice is often a dry martini.
The 95-year year-old is also believed to enjoy a glass of sweet wine with dinner, while her late cousin Margaret Rhodes once reported she was known to drink a glass of champagne before bed.
‘The alcohol has gone, her doctors want to make sure she is as fit and healthy as possible,’ a second source was quoted as saying by the magazine.
Dubonnet and gin, the Queen Mother’s favourite tipple is also believed to be a choice often requested by Her Majesty.
