Like millions of people across the country, the queen loves to watch television. We are all familiar with the concept of staying up late to watch one more episode, and it seems the monarch is the same.
The queen’s love of watching television has even led her to develop a very identifiable dining habit.
So while she is completely unique in her circumstances, the Queen is like everyone else for this amusing reason.

When you imagine the way the Queen sits down to eat her food, you’d probably assume that she eats from gold plates and uses the best silverware, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
The Queen is known for enjoying the simplest things in life and that is certainly made clear in a surprising revelation on where she sets up for dinner.

Speaking during the documentary ‘Secrets Of The Royal Kitchen’, royal biographer Lady Colin Campbell detailed that the queen likes to catch up on her favorite shows while eating.
Lady Campbell said, “She has her dinner on a tray watching TV. She likes it. It’s homey and cozy and it’s comfortable.”
Earlier this year, the queen’s hectic schedule and late-night fondness for late-night TV led her into a bind when she fell ill and was told to rest, according to palace sources in a report from The times .
The report suggested that the queen was “devastated” and that is what led to her being hospitalized overnight in London for “preliminary tests”.
Fortunately, the Queen seems to be feeling much better now and royal fans were delighted to find that the Queen’s television habit is incredibly relatable.
According to the article, the queen’s favorite shows to watch are Line of Duty and tennis during the summer.
It was previously reported that the Queen had also watched Netflix’s The Crown, the multi-award winning show based on the lives of her and her family.
The queen is believed to have watched the series after she was encouraged by her son and daughter-in-law, the Earl and Countess of Wessex.
A source said: “It has been a long-standing arrangement that they drive to Windsor on the weekend to meet the Queen for a casual dinner while watching TV or a movie. They have a Netflix account and they urged her to watch it with them.
They added: “Happily, she really liked it, although there were obviously some reenactments of events that she found too dramatized.”
