Queen begins her day with a cup of tea Earl Grey (without milk and sugar) with a biscuit or cookie.
A cup of tea to the Queen.
Then she usually eat breakfast fruit and cereals (especially indifferent to the Queen Special K brand).
Oatmeal - a royal breakfast.
Sometimes, though, she has breakfast toast and marmalade, or, in special cases, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and truffles. At the same time, Queen Elizabeth prefers brown eggs, because he believes that they taste better.
Before lunch Queen receives aperitif gin and Dubonnet (wine based aperitif) with a slice of lemon and a large amount of ice.

That afternoon tea is most similar to a scene from "The Little Princess". Queen never misses a daily afternoon tea with sandwiches, scones and her favorite cake.
According to McGrady, Elizabeth II usually requires two types of sandwiches with cucumber, smoked salmon, eggs with mayonnaise, ham and mustard. She also loves the tiny sandwiches with raspberry jam.
