Queen Elizabeth II, merely has whole wheat toast with some light marmalade, and tea. Where Prince Philip has a much heartier meal because he likes a full British breakfast include eggs, bacon, toast and kippers.

Breakfast is served at 8:30 sharp in the Queen’s private, first floor apartment overlooking the Buckingham Palace gardens. Half an hour after breakfast is served, the Queen and Prince Philip are entertained by bagpipes. It is the continuation of a tradition started by Queen Victoria and which has continued uninterrupted (with a brief exception of WWII) until this day. In fact, it “is the principal duty of the Queen’s Piper to play every weekday at 9am for about 15 minutes when she is in residence at Buckingham Palace, Windsor, Edinburgh’s Holyroodhouse Palace or Balmoral Castle in the Scottish Highlands. The Queen is very knowledgeable about the pipes and notices the subtleties and any variations in the music.” See, “All in a Royal Day,” supra.

John Gorton, 19th Prime Minister of Australia, would enjoy a rather interesting breakfast. Peels and slices ripe juicy oranges, fries crisp and brown as many slices of lean bacon as needed. Each slice is broken in half. Then the bacon and orange slices are piled on hot buttered toast and a little of the bacon fat poured from the pan over each serving.
