The late Duke and the Queen would enjoy a special drink at lunchtime and in the evening when they were together. It has been speculated that the Queen has since stopped drinking alcohol since the death of her husband in April. Prince Philip died in Windsor Castle, aged 99. 

Julia Hartley-Brewer spoke to royal expert Angela Levin on talkRADIO about the Queen and Philip.

Ms Hartley-Brewer asked: The Queen did apparently decide to give up alcohol after the death of Prince Philip in April.”

“It seems to me if she enjoys a nice little tipple of an evening she should carry on doing that.”

“What’s the point of giving up a nice glass of booze of an evening at the age of 95?”

Ms Levin stated: “I think there’s an emotional attachment to that to.”

“She used to have Dubonnet with various mixtures and it was always Prince Philip’s duty to do it at lunchtime and the evening if they were there together.”

“It was part of their relationship, and I think it no longer has the same taste because he’s not there.”

“He used to get the amounts absolutely spot on.”

Ms Hartley-Brewer joked: “I want a Dubonnet now and it’s only 8:44 in the morning.”
