Her Majesty's a Pretty Nice Girl

Her first drink... enjoyed shortly before lunch, is a gin and Dubonnet with a slice of lemon and a “lot of ice.”...
Then, during lunch, she’ll have a piece of chocolate and a glass of wine at meal’s end...
O.K., then, also at lunch, the Queen drinks a dry gin martini....
Her final drink of the day?... a glass of Champagne before bed.
Champagne before bed? That's just silly.
She's 91, and it's working out fine for her. But what about the rest of us? I'm seeing: "Moderate and heavy drinkers had 2-fold higher odds of living to age 85 without cognitive impairment relative to non-drinkers."
In a statement, the university said that, “By its (federal) definition, moderate drinking involves consuming up to one alcoholic beverage a day for adult women of any age and men aged 65 and older; and up to two drinks a day for adult men under age 65.
“Heavy drinking is defined as up to three alcoholic beverages per day for women of any adult age and men 65 and older; and four drinks a day for adult men under 65. Drinking more than these amounts is categorized as excessive.”
So by the "federal" (i.e., U.S. government) definition, the Queen is an excessive drinker.
Sort of puts a different light on this photo:

"the Queen is an excessive drinker"

If you had Charles as a son, you'd drink too.
