11 Small Things the Queen Does Every Day

11 Small Things the Queen Does Every Day


You ever wonder why Queen Elizabeth II is
in such good shape? It’s a secret: She does Cross Fit! Yeah you should see this 93-year-old gal do
a clean and jerk! Unbelievable! …Okay not really. But, let’s face it, for a woman in her 90’s,
she just looks amazing. She also works every single day, and it seems
like she won’t retire any time soon. So you wanna know the real secret behind her
incredible health and endurance? #1 She has really good genes – no not Levi’s
Biologists say that in no small measure, the genes you have influence your life span. Well, there’s no denying that the Queen
is pretty lucky on that front. Her own mom, the Queen Mother, lived to the
impressive age of 101. So it’s only logical that no one expects
anything less from Elizabeth herself. But the one thing that may be even more significant
than DNA is lifestyle. But more on that later. #2 She’s happily married
If the royal experience teaches us anything, it’s that it’s pretty helpful to have
a loving partner at your side. Elizabeth II married Prince Philip in 1947. Their love story’s been going on for over
70 years now! For all that time, he’s been her greatest
support. Surely, they had their ups and downs just
like everybody else, but that seemed to only strengthen their marriage. Together they raised 4 children, let alone
all the challenges their regal duties brought upon them. In the Queen’s own words, “He has, quite
simply, been my strength and stay all these years.” #3 She knows how to manage stress
Being Queen isn’t as easy as you’d imagine. Elizabeth II is not only the monarch, but
she’s also the Supreme Governor of the Church of England, and of course the head of the
British royal family. So her life, by definition, can’t be stress-free,
due to her many obligations. So, dealing with the pressure was the best
way to go. As her former spokesperson Dickie Arbiter
says, “she can get angry if something doesn’t go right, but as it’s often out of her control
there is no point becoming stressed about it.” And when the Queen can be in charge, she’s
handling it perfectly; especially at her own home. I’ll get into that in a bit. #4 She sticks to healthy food
Though the Queen can order absolutely anything, she prefers to eat simple and healthy meals. She’s all about self-discipline when it
comes to food; she actually controls all the recipes herself. Her favorite dishes on a normal day are grilled
fish or chicken with fresh veggies. And if there’s meat on the menu, she likes
it well-done. She also has a few rules that all her chefs
have to follow. She doesn’t eat starches, if she dines alone,
of course. That means no pasta, rice, or potatoes for
her Majesty. And she’d never tolerate out-of-season fruits. So even if she loves strawberries in summer,
she won’t get caught snacking on them during winter. But with all this, you’d be surprised what
she usually has for breakfast. It’s just a regular cereal and she eats
it… from a plastic container! Her chefs say that the monarch’s shy about
requesting expensive products like truffles, and she saves them for Christmas. So she’s much closer to us commoners than
it seems. #5 She has regular medical check-ups
Let’s be honest, sometimes it seems like there’s no time or need to go to the doctor
if you’re feeling ok. But that’s not the case for Her Majesty. She’s in excellent health, thanks in large
part to the preventive screenings she has at least once a year. She’s very disciplined regarding her well-being,
as always. She knows that going to the doctor for a routine
check keeps her on track, so she never avoids it. And that’s really practical too. Minor problems are always easier to sort out,
so the Queen sticks to diagnostics. Doctors monitor her cholesterol and blood
pressure and analyze her diet. And when her vitals are good, she can go about
her daily concerns in good spirit. #6 She works out. Really. If you think that her royal duties keep the
Queen sitting all day long, let me correct you. Throughout her life, she’s traveled more
than any other ruler in the world. And though she may leave her country less
frequently now, she’s in excellent shape. Maybe it’s the numerous state visits and
ceremonies that keep her physically active. Even at her age, she can spend hours standing. And let’s not forget the Queen’s love
for horses. Of course, she doesn’t race anymore; after
all, she’s in her 90s. But that doesn’t mean she’s slowed down. She still finds time to ride now and then. And when she can’t, she walks. #7 She keeps her mind occupied
The Queen’s always been a dedicated lady who took her responsibilities very seriously. Her working routine still includes checking
a huge amount of paperwork in the famous red boxes she gets day after day. She meets the Prime Minister once every week. Apart from that, she regularly visits with
quite a few politicians, diplomats, and people of arts. But continuing her long-time work is one thing,
and finding interest in something new is another. Unlike many people of her generation who choose
to stay away from modern technology, she’s curious about it. In 2008, she visited the Google office in
London. Since then, she’s sent her first tweet and
an Instagram post. One year, she actually decided to broadcast
her annual Christmas message in 3D. And she loved it! #8 She gets enough sleep
The Queen’s everyday schedule is pretty rough, and she’d never accomplish so many
things during the day if she didn’t have a good night’s rest. She needs about 7 hours of sleep, so nothing
unusual here. But did you have any idea that Her Majesty
is actually a night owl? Sometimes she stays up till past midnight,
and only then she hits the sack. That’s one thing that can be pretty annoying
for her family. Apparently, it’s considered bad manners
to go to bed before the matriarch. And she’s really original, not only in her
sleeping habits, but also in the way she wakes up. Instead of a regular alarm clock, she gets
up to… nothing other than bagpipe tunes under her window! Yep, the Queen’s quite a fan of this Scottish
instrument. #9 She helps others
Another thing we could all learn from Queen Elizabeth is her devotion to charity. She’s a patron for over 600 organizations
of all kinds, including hospitals, schools, art institutions, and sports associations. She supports the British Red Cross and cancer
research, as well as organizations which provide service for disabled people. The Queen’s work is yet another reminder
that charity can be both kindness and fun. Some of the projects she helps reflect her
own hobbies, such as Dogs Trust or the society promoting classical bagpipe music. Which, as you know, is also Her Majesty’s
favorite way to start the day. #10 She drinks plenty of tea
One of the Queen’s secrets to a long and healthy life is drinking tea. She wouldn’t be a British monarch if she
didn’t enjoy this centuries-old practice, right? She can’t live without a cup of tea and
cookies in the morning. She usually takes it with milk and no sugar. And by tradition, she always takes a sip of
her favorite Darjeeling in the afternoon, followed by a couple of sandwiches. But it’s not only the taste and scent of
it that Her Majesty likes so much. It’s also good for her health. Tea’s full of antioxidants; which can lower
the risk of cancer and lower blood pressure. One mug is just what she needs, and she can
get back to saving the world. #11 She enjoys life
Elizabeth II definitely knows how to keep a cool head most of the time. But she also doesn’t forget that enjoying
yourself is very important for feeling good. Despite her pretty strict diet, she treats
herself every once in a while. Surprisingly, she does have a sweet tooth. She especially loves dark chocolate, but her
all-time favorite is a chocolate biscuit cake. Sometimes she’ll just ask for one and eat
it day by day until there’s not a single bite left. The same thing goes for her social life. At times when the Queen’s not busy with
her garden parties and meetings, she hangs out with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Besides, she adores taking care of her horses,
and her love for dogs and corgis, in particular, has always been beyond compare. I guess that’s her main secret to remaining
as sharp and active as ever: it’s happiness. So what qualities do you admire about Queen
Elizabeth II? Let me know down in the comments! If you learned something new today, then give

  1. Anyone could live like her with servants and staff to do everything for you. She has money to spend her time doing what she wants, eating what she wants and working out where she wants. Her staff takes care of the rest.

  2. My mother-in-law lived to 105. An Aunt to 103. 3 other Aunts lived until well in their nineties. One of them had never been in Hosp until the day she died. I think its just a matter of luck really.

  3. I wanna know how Our queen can still stand at 93 and I see 70 year olds in wheelchairs and with walking sticks

  4. 2:12 she doesn’t have to worry about al those things except health, family, maybe the minions (idk what they mean) and maybe career

  5. Hello person scrolling through this thx for taking time for reading this comment btw am a small youtuber can u subscribe to xoxoxoxox have a good day

  6. No secret she lives off us tax payers and has the best private healthcare . The royal family are all parasites .

  7. A lot of sick people comment about Bright Side videos. I'm speaking of the nutso's posting about reptiles and drinking blood.

  8. She procures orphans from the fringe of her reigning dominion and then snacks on them. It’s no secret what she fancies. Juicy children.

  9. Except for be awakened by bagpipes her style is probably a good way to live for most of us but I don't think most people could keep up with the hectic and rigid schedule.

  10. Your parents will die if u ignore:(
    Your parents will live if u like;)
    Press this

  11. Shill alert. This channel has completely lost all credibility. Channels like these produce some good content but also push propaganda after gaining your trust. These "royals" are sick.

  12. Money should be first… you want to eat healthy 7 days a week? have a check-up at the doctor once a year? pay for the pills? you better be rich… and lots of money would bring a smile on everyone's face.

  13. Neither the Queen or any of her family have ever done a proper days work, she has more money than she could ever hope to spend. She has no rent or bills to worry about. She doesn't have to lift a finger at home as she has staff, the tax payer is even having to pay for the repairs to Buckingham Palace. The Royal family may bring a lot of revenue to this country, but they receive a huge salary from taxpayers each year. Royal children have always gone to Private Schools, they never have to run for a bus or the tube. If we all lived like this family we would all look good at 93. The have always had private health care, no waiting 6 months on the NHS for them.

  14. She's very lucky shes a queen and can be happy and healthy and have a perfect family… Something everyone would want

  20. For you people saying drinking human blood obviously your crazy… She eats healthy and only drinks water and babies blood..

  28. 1:35 "Together they raised 4 children"
    looks at top right corner
    Well Philip, I've got some bad news for you buddy

  29. Please!!! Time to get rid of the royal Family, they are just taking tax payers money by doing nothing really useful.

    Rich really rich with tax payers money and not just the queen but all these monarchs that do not work they do nothing but live of the tax payers money.

  30. When the Queen visited Harare in Zimbabwe in 1991, the Buluwayo pipe band dressed in Stuart regalia, snuck onto the runway and as the queen inspected Mugabe's troops, they played her favourite scottish tunes. They were immediately arrested, beaten and expected to spend a couple of days in prison for the prank. Within 6 hours they were out – on condition they play at the formal dinner by despot Mugabe for the Queen. A long article was published in the government owned media. The queen had intervened. The end of a fun prank

    Not so quick – 2 weeks later they were summoned to the Matabeli Government Building in Bulawayo. Could only be very bad news. The British consol was there and handed each a personal letter signed by the Queen thanking them. They also each got a framed certificate outlining their prank.

    NOW THAT IS ONE CLASSY QUEEN! πŸ˜†

  31. I am especially grateful to the Queen for saving the desperately endangered breed of horse, the "Cleveland Bay"! Without her intervention, the breed would be no more.

  32. As an Irishman living in the UK, I am a huge fan of Her Majesty and her family and some of the ways in which she lives her life are things that I could easily put into practice in my own life

  33. Bright Side, are you sure your facts are correct, In the morning she drinks Earl Grey Tea with biscuits, not cookies and I believe she drinks it black with no sugar. She actually does work hard like you say, in her 90's and not yet retired, official duties almost every day.
    There are some truely disgraceful comments on here…

  34. The real reason is, we the tax payers pay for everything. She has nothing to worry about. Everything is free. Imagine the best day you could possibly live. She has that *every day*.

  35. I use to listen to her Christmas message almost every Christmas
    I really enjoy the Queen I find her a delightful person….

  36. How does her majesty keep her connection with her maker which I believe HE IS watching over her affairs no matter how much care she takes to ensure smart living.
