The Queen once did something seriously shocking for a Buckingham Palace builder
It has been reported that a builder working in Buckingham Palace was once left stunned when the Queen made him a cuppa.
In an upcoming Channel 5 documentary, Secrets of the Royal Palaces, royal upholsterer Kevin Andrews describes the moment Her Majesty personally made the hot beverage for the workman who was doing some hard graft in her home.
The builder is said to have been dismantling a desk when he heard a well spoken woman offer him a cup of tea, before answering, “Yeah, in a mug. Two sugars. Builders’ tea.
“I don’t want any of that nonsense I had the last time I was here, all that fine china and all that saucer stuff.”
Moments later he was told, “I’ve put your tea on the table here.”
He then looked up and was greeted by the sight of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth.
The hilarious anecdote comes days after it was claimed that the 93-year-old monarch loves tucking into Fray Bentos tinned pies during flights.
Her former pilot reported that she and other Royal family members enjoyed the long life snacks back in the 90s, explaining: ‘Do you know, they used to love it. I think it’s such a lovely change from all that fancy food which comes first class.’
The meaty treats are available in Steak and Kidney, Minced Beef and Onion and Chicken and Bacon flavour and can be bought for a seriously budget price of £2.50.
Maybe Queen Liz isn’t so different to us after all!
