Queen Elizabeth II, 94, has travelled around the world countless times representing the UK during state visits. Though her schedule is often jam-packed with people to meet and events to attend, she makes sure not to miss out on her all-important sleep.
With so much travel, jet lag can also be a headache, particularly with an itinerary as busy as the Queen’s.
Luckily, she has a nifty travel trick to beat this too.
Though many people may reach for over-the-counter medications to help side-step international time zones, the Monarch prefers more natural remedies.
These include basic “homoeopathic medicines” and “barley sugar”.
Queen Elizabeth also ensures she has plenty of her home comforts with her while travelling, to further enhance the experience.
Insiders say she always packs her own supply of Earl Grey tea and personal monogrammed kettle with her.
As part of Channel 5 documentary ‘Secrets of the Royal Flight’, royal correspondent Emily Andrews said: “She loves afternoon tea, it’s her favourite meal and she only drinks Earl Grey.
“So if you were the chef on board the Royal Plane you would definitely make sure that you had an entire supply of Earl Grey. Not just for the plane journey but wherever you were going on tour on tour.“
