Queen news: Clockwork self-care schedule includes Earl Grey and auction TV | Royal | News (Reports)


The 94-year-old usually has a busy schedule which includes overseas tours and official visits. But her evening habits are not dissimilar to those of others around the nation – though she does enjoy eating alone in the evenings, according to The List.

She also enjoys a cup of tea at the same time every day – 5pm – and also makes them for her visitors if she has any at that time, an etiquette expert told .

If she is not busy with any evening receptions, the Queen is said to relax by watching TV – and is partial to shows such as Antiques Roadshow and Antiques Road Trip.

She even appeared on the former in 2014 and said she would watch the episode at Balmoral when it was broadcast.

The monarch is also reportedly a fan of comedy from decades past, such as Jeeves and Wooster.

The Daily Mail previously claimed Her Majesty “spends most time” during her Balmoral summer break catching up on TV.

When it comes to bedtime itself, the Queen has one particular rule in place – no-one should go to bed before she does.

In any case, the royal “never goes to bed with a glass of bubbly,” The List reports.

The Monarch is due to turn 95 this year, while husband Prince Philip is set to turn 100.

While the Queen has her own lifestyle habits, Prince Charles is said to be the royal with some particularly fussy routines.

Paul Burrell, a former butler to Princess Diana, once revealed in a documentary that the Prince goes so far as to request that his shoelaces are ironed.

Appearing in Amazon Prime documentary ‘Serving the Royals: Inside the Firm’, Mr Burrell said: “His pyjamas are pressed every morning, his shoelaces are pressed flat with an iron, the bath plug has to be in a certain position, and the water temperature has to be just tepid.”
