McGrady also emphasized the Queen’s appetite for fresh strawberries from the Balmoral Castle garden, eating them for up to 4 nights a week. However, she always has a way of knowing if the berries are freshly picked or out of season. Even with her age, no one dared to try to offer her strawberries that were out of season.

Furthermore, he speaks about the order in which the Queen desires her toppings; the jam comes first, then the clotted cream. McGrady aired the Queen’s love for gin and the Dubonnet Cocktail with lime and ice and how she likes to sip some champagne while relaxing in the afternoon.
