The Queen’s doctors advised Elizabeth II to abstain from drinking alcohol to preserve the good health condition of her Majesty, the sources close to the British royalties told The Vanity Fair.


The doctors said that Queen is in great physical health, but the frequent consumption of alcohol could have a long-term bad influence. At the same time, the Queen was allowed to drink a glass of alcohol on special occasions including her upcoming Platinum Jubilee celebrations next June.

Elizabeth II will be 96 next year and she is expected to travel around Britain to celebrate the Jubilee while her family go on a tour around the Commonwealth. 

The British Queen prefers dry Martini the most which is also Prince Charles’s favorite while she enjoys the beverage in the evenings.

Besides that, the Queen is also fond of Dubonnet and gin, which was the Queen Mother’s favorite drink and she can afford to drink a glass of wine at dinner. She’s also known to drink a glass of champagne before bed.

Previously, the media figured out that the Queen consumed four alcoholic beverages a day.

The Queen has gone through a difficult period of her life after the death of her husband Prince Philip in April and a conflict with his grandchild Harry.

"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," says a family friend.

Harry and his wife Meghan got into a fight with the Queen in January when Harry gave up his royal title and decided to live with his wife in Northern America. Harry's daughter Lilibet didn't appear in the royal line of succession.

The Queen and Harry reportedly might meet each other this Christmas.
