The Queen told off the Queen Mother after she found four empty gin bottles in a drinks' cupboard during an evening at Clarence House, it is claimed.

"To the dear old Queen Mum, flowers are very nice, but at sad times like this we all need a stiff drink!" the accompanying note read.

In a Daily Mail article last year, a former staffer recalled the Queen Mother's daily drinking pattern rarely changed.

“At noon, she had her first drink of the day — a potent mix of two parts of the fortified wine Dubonnet to one part of gin,” wrote Major Colin Burgess.

“This was followed by red wine with lunch and, very occasionally, a glass of port to end it.”

The widow of King George VI would then have an evening drink at 6pm, which she deemed “the earliest acceptable time for an evening drink”.

“‘Colin, are we at the magic hour?’ the Queen Mother would invariably ask, and I’d mix her a Martini,” Burgess continued.

“After a couple of these, she would sit down to dinner and drink one or two glasses of pink champagne.”

The Queen Mother’s love of gin was perhaps rivalled by her fondness for red wine, her former staffer added.

“Particularly heavy clarets ... We must have got through a bottle-and-a-half at that first meeting,” he wrote.

If reports are to be believed, Queen Elizabeth’s everyday drinking routine doesn’t differ radically from her mother’s.

According to the Queen’s cousin - via The Independent - the 91-year-old drinks a gin and Dubonnet with a slice of lemon and ice before lunch.

She then drinks wine with lunch and kicks off her evenings with a dry Martini and a glass of champagne.
