The royal family’s favourite drinks

30th November, 2012 by Andy Young

Can you guess which member of the royal family has Boddingtons as their favourite drink, or who likes a cocktail called a ‘crack baby’?

British Royal FamilyThe House of Windsor was founded in 1917 when King George V changed the name from the German Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.

Queen Elizabeth II was born just nine years later in 1926, ascending to the throne on 6 February 1952. The Queen recently celebrated her Diamond Jubilee, marking 60 years on the throne.

But what drinks will have been served at such regal events? You might not be surprised to learn gin and tonic is a popular choice, and it is usually served at Balmoral on Christmas Day.

But Guinness, sambuca and premium vodka are also favourite with certain royals.
