Queen Elizabeth II, who will mark 63 years of reign on Sept. 9, loves her cereal breakfast. She has cornflakes with her husband Prince Philip, 94, in the morning. Her daily routine is very normal. After waking up, she has a cup of Twinings English breakfast tea served with milk and no sugar along with some Marie cookies.
Since the past 63 years of being a sovereign, her daily routine has remained unchanged. Elizabeth wakes up at 7:30 a.m. and listens to her vintage Roberts radio tuned to BBC Radio 4’s “Today” program. Then she has tea, after which she has a bath and then eats cereals that are kept in Tupperware containers for breakfast with her husband, People reported.
“She loves to hear British politicians being grilled by the presenters,” Brian Hoey, author of "At Home With The Queen” said. She also reads newspapers, but first she flips through Racing Post, which covers her favorite pastime horseracing.
Meanwhile, Elizabeth loves to watch “Downtown Abbey”. She knows the historic locale where the series is filmed, Highclere Castle, inside and out – and relishes spotting things that may be amiss.
She also has a sweet tooth. The British monarch, who will turn 90 years in April 2016, loves all things sweet like chocolates and pudding.
The royal also has a great sense of humor in spite of being deadpan, said her cousin Margaret Rhodes. She is good at mimicking and can even mimic an aircraft.
When it comes to music, Elizabeth does not like opera or ballet. She likes musical theatre by Rodgers and Hammerstein, like “Carousel”, “Oklahoma” or “South Pacific”.
She is about to break the record set by her great-great grandmother Queen Victoria for the longest-reigning British monarch in history on Sept. 9. A 30-minute flotilla will sail down the River Thames to celebrate the occasion.
The celebrations will start at Tower Bridge at midday with a number of historic vessels, leisure cruisers and passenger boats sounding their horns for one minute before passing under the iconic bridge and making their way towards the Houses of Parliament.
As the procession passes by HMS Belfast, a four gun salute will sound and the fireboat Massey Shaw will shoot jets of water into the air. Crowds are expected to line the river and cheer as boats including the Queen’s row barge Gloriana and the steam ship SS George Stephenson sail by.
