Queen Elizabeth II is following a strict schedule and diet when it comes to her food and drink.

The monarch starts her day with a pot of Earl Grey tea with tea biscuits. She partakes in this the moment she's up. Queen Elizabeth II drinks her tea without sugar but doesn't mind adding a little milk on it.

For her breakfast, she joins Prince Philip at the Buckingham Palace every 8:30 a.m. The Queen usually have cereal and fruit. Her cereal of choice is Special K, which is stored in a plastic yellow Tupperware as the Queen believes it to keep cereal fresh.

The Tupperware is delivered to the Queen on her breakfast tray so can pour the cereal to her bowl herself. Occasionally, Queen Elizabeth opt for a toast and marmalade or scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and truffle. 

For eggs, she only eats brown eggs as they taste better. On the other hand, the Duke of Edinburgh listed to his Roberts radio and usually prefers two types of marmalade - light and dark and a carton of yogurt.

"Breakfast was very simple for Her Majesty," royal chef. Darren McGrady said (as quoted by Express).

Every afternoon, the monarch takes her afternoon tea, served with finger sandwiches such as cucumber, smoked salmon, egg and mayonnaise or ham and mustard with the crusts removed. She also enjoys jam pennies - tiny raspberry sandwiches cut into circles the size of an English Penny.

It also comes with McVite's rich tea biscuits, scones and cakes. Among Her Majesty's favorites are honey and cream sponge, ginger, fruit, and chocolate biscuit cake.
