Like most people, the Queen follows a daily routine, starting and ending almost every day the same way. It is said that she wakes up at the same time every day and her schedule for the early hours is meticulously observed.
However, part of this routine is said to be indulging in a guilty pleasure before breakfast has even started. The Queens The request for food before breakfast is something her great-grandchildren would certainly approve of too. While she may be one of the world’s most traveled nonagenarians and tasted hundreds of different types of food, one would only expect that she found something that is her absolute favorite, reports MyLondon.

And you’d be forgiven for mistaking the Queen’s favorite breakfast for a fussy toddler because, believe it or not, the first thing the Queen eats in the morning is some biscuits. But what kind of cookie does she prefer? Former royal chef Darren McGrady said: ‘When I was there… Chocolate Bath Olivers.
Darren has previously said, “She’s absolutely addicted to chocolate. Anything we put on the menu that has chocolate in it she would choose, especially the Chocolate Perfection Pie,” he added.
The makers of Huntley & Palmer describe Chocolate Olivers on their website as: “Rich dark chocolate, generously coated around a crisp, slow-baked cookie. Chocolate Olivers are the ultimate cookie indulgence, made using from a patented recipe from the 1930s, which includes hops and malt, with the thickest and richest dark chocolate.”
With her cheeky breakfast, the queen will have her first cup of tea. Her Majesty is said to prefer Earl Gray without sugar and with the occasional drop of milk. While it may surprise you to learn of the queen’s obsession with sweets, she’s not the only royal with a love of chocolate.
At afternoon tea time, the Queen will have another cup of Earl Gray tea and taste cakes such as ginger cake, jam pennies and chocolate cookie cake. The chocolate treat is also a favorite of her grandson, Prince William. In fact, he loved the cake so much he had it as his second wedding cake for his 2011 nuptials to the Duchess of Cambridge.
It is well known that Prince William has a sweet tooth like his grandmother. During a video call to school children before Easter a few years ago, Catherine revealed that William couldn’t stop eating their supply of Easter chocolate.
As the couple wished everyone a happy Easter, William reassured them, “There’s going to be a lot of chocolate being eaten here, don’t worry!” Before his wife responds quickly: “You keep eating it!”
Regarding the chocolate biscuit cake, chocolatier Barry Colenso said: “Although McVitie’s Cake Company and I developed it into a wedding cake, we closely followed the guidelines issued by Buckingham Palace for making sure it was perfect. It was rich, indulgent and creamy with a really lively texture that came from the Rich Tea cookies.
When creating the chocolate confectionery, Barry continued, “The Tiffin cake itself was quite simple as the recipe came from the palace, but the extras and decorations were another story. The McVities team and I worked 24/7 for 29 straight days to make sure we were doing something spectacular, and it met Prince William and Kate’s brief.
