According to OK Magazine, Her Majesty was advised to stop drinking altogether as she rests up on the advice of doctors. The Queen spent one night in hospital as a precautionary measure earlier in the week and is currently recuperating at Windsor Castle.

While the Palace has been keen to play down fears for the Queen’s health one royal insider told the Sunday Times the ageing monarch is “knackered” and has “given up lunchtime gin and evening martini”.

Rather than drinking gin at lunch, Her Majesty is instead understood to sit and watch television with her friend Mabel Anderson.

Mabel is a long-time friend of the Queen and was previously a royal nanny who looked after her children.

Mabel and Her Majesty both are the same age.

A source told the Sunday Times: “The Queen rings her up sometimes and Mabel goes and watches television with her.

“They are very cosy.”

According to an insider, the Queen was tired out after “a constant flow of lunches and dinners with family and friends, because the Queen does not want to dine alone”.

The source added: “She is fine, but needs the rest – she is saving her energy for Cop.” 

The Queen – along with the rest of the senior royals – have been preparing for the upcoming COP26 summit.

The summit, which is taking place in Glasgow, will occur between October 31 and November 12.

As well as the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William will also be in attendance at the upcoming event.

But the Queen was caught discussing who was going and who was not going to the summit.

In the recording, it was fair to say the Queen was confused as to who was going to be in attendance from world leaders.

Her Majesty was caught saying: “Extraordinary, isn’t it.

“I’ve been hearing all about Cop… still don’t know who is coming. No idea.

“We only know about people who are not coming…”
