Her Majesty doesn’t possess a passport

Okay, all of us would be immobile without a passport, but that doesn’t apply to the Queen. She can happily travel wherever she likes without needing the booklet the rest of us require to leave our countries.

It says on the royal family’s website that a passport is unnecessary for the Queen and the other family members. However, all other members, including The Prince of Wales and The Duke of Edinburgh, do possess passports. 

The Queen drinks a glass of champagne before bed

We all know the saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” however, Her Majesty has different rituals. According to Margaret Rhodes, her cousin, the Queen drinks a gin before lunch, a glass of wine during lunch, followed by a martini. And she always has a glass of champagne before bed.

If she does this daily, the Queen would be consuming four alcohol units per day. This qualifies her as a binge drinker by many people.

According to IMDb, Her Majesty has been portrayed on screen 100 times, with outstanding portrayals including Helen Mirren, who won an Oscar for her role in The Queen, and Claire Foy, who played her in The Crown

The Queen speaks fluent French

Maybe we don’t envy her for having to follow so many protocols and rules, but the one thing that we truly envy her is the traveling. She is one of the most traveled monarchs in history! So, she visited France many times now, and she picked up the language. The Queen has delivered many official speeches in French, showing off her talent for languages.

The Queen has seen thirteen UK Prime Ministers 

From Churchill to Theresa May, The Queen has seen it all come to power.

And last, you should watch this video. Her Majesty has shared private footage of herself and her sister, Princess Margaret, as children to mark her 94th birthday. Traditionally, a 21-gun volley is fired from either Green Park or Hyde Park, followed by a 62-gun salute at the Tower of London. However, this year wasn’t any birthday gun salutes because the Queen thought it would be inappropriate given the current situation.

Miley Cyrus opens up about her alcohol addiction

The Disney alum has always been open about her experience with alcohol and drugs. And like many people during the pandemic, she has gone through some ups and downs with substance.

In a recent interview with Apple Music, Miley Cyrus has discussed her journey with sobriety, and she honestly opened up about relapsing.

Miley Cyrus opened up about her alcohol problems, saying she stopped drinking again, mainly because she feared she would die at the age of 27. This age was the end for many of her colleagues such as Amy Winehouse, Janice Joplin, and Jim Morrison.

Apple Music’s Zane Lowe asked the singer about her sobriety. Miley Cyrus clarified that recently during the pandemic she had broken her sobriety by drinking alcohol, but at the time of the interview, she was two weeks sober. She admitted that she fell off during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, she has finally realized that she shouldn’t be furious with herself, but ask herself what exactly happened.

This summer, she said that she did not decide to give up alcohol completely. But the singer has since learned that she is ‘not a moderation person’.

That is why she decided to eliminate alcohol from her lifestyle. Miley Cyrus added that she is a disciplined person: That is why it is easy for her to be sober once she decides.

In time, however, she began to wonder where her unhealthy relationship with alcohol came from. The singer realized that the problems in her family played a big part in this. Her parents were divorced and her father took care of her alone, and in the meantime, he had addiction problems.

However, in the last 2-3 months, Miley drank more but began to fear joining the so-called “Club 27”. This refers to a group of musicians who died before the age of 28.
