Old Queen Lady Immortal Haha
She Will Outlive All Of Us
At 93 years old, the Queen Elizabeth II is considered a high-risk patient for contracting a virus just like her husband prince Philip who retired three years ago. Variety reports that the Queen is now relocated from Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle. Her support staff has also been reduced while the royal staff are told to work from home.
The Queen last met virus-positive Prime Minister on the 11th of March, and saw Prince of Wales briefly on the 12th in the morning. Fortunately, the Buckingham Palace reports that she remains in good health. “Her Majesty The Queen remains in good health. She is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare."
The Queen has always had immaculate health despite her hectic royal duties and strict daily schedule. Some believe that a disciplined diet is key to her longevity.
Former royal chef Darren McGrady, who worked for Elizabeth and the royal family for more than a decade, confirms that. “She could have anything she wanted, but it is that discipline that keeps her so well and so healthy."
In fact, you could still spot the pots from the 19th century in the royal kitchen. “They're still using pots and pans from the 1800s, with the Queen Victoria stamp on them,” explained the chef. The Queen pays much more attention to horses, dogs, and long walks in nature than food.
