Earlier this year, former chef Darren McGready hit back at claims that he had suggested his former boss drinks four alcoholic beverages every day.

“She’d be pickled if she drank that much,” Hello! magazine quoted.

“All I said was she likes a gin and Dubonnet. That’s her favourite drink.

“She certainly doesn’t drink four glasses a day.”

Why has she been told to stop?

Now, a royal family friend told Vanity Fair that docs have told her to stop drinking unless it’s special occasions.

“The Queen has been told to give up her evening drink which is usually a martini,” the source said.

“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.”

Another source told the magazine: “The alcohol has gone, her doctors want to make sure she is as fit and healthy as possible.”
