There are so many interesting countries to visit in Europe, and Britain is one of the best. Not just a matter of building or a row of world-class football clubs, but also the royal life that is unique and inviting curiosity. Now, talking about the British empire is not only about Kate Middleton or Prince William, but also the British official. Yup, Queen Elizabeth.
This figure is indeed very iconic with England and indeed is so respected there. This 89-year-old woman is also very good temperament and friendly to anyone. But behind what we know about Queen Elizabeth, it turns out that the granddaughter of Queen Mary has unique facts that not everyone knows. For example, it turns out easy to get angry, unique object collectors, as well as many others. Following the review.
1. A kindhearted queen who can sometimes get angry
As good and polite as any manner of a nobleman, she is also an ordinary man who can be angry when there are various things that are not in accordance with her wishes. Something like this has also been shown by the queen. Several times she was caught on camera throwing shoes to threaten someone.
But of all these things, there is one exciting event that many people will remember about the queen’s anger. At that time, there was a photo session with the leaders of the countries at the G20 meeting in 2009. The queen, who was sitting in the front row, was very disturbed when Silvio Berlusconi suddenly shouted “Mr. Obama ” right behind her. Queen Elizabeth chimed in by shouting also like this, “Hey, should you scream like that?”. This incident was viral and invited a lot of responses.
2. The Queen Eats the Same Breakfast Every Morning
Imagine every day you have to eat fried rice or instant noodles, and you must be bored to death even though it tastes good. You are even more willing to skip breakfast if the menu is the same from yesterday. This is very different from the habits of Queen Elizabeth. Believe it or not, she has been eating the same breakfast menu, perhaps since she was young.
I don’t know what caused it, but the queen would never miss her favorite oatmeal cornflakes or porridge and orange jam bread. Hmm, even though she is a royal family who has more than enough wealth to provide a better and varied breakfast menu than this. But, the queen certainly has her own reasons. Maybe one of them is to save the royal budget.
3. Ever Received Prizes in the form of Unique Animals
Being a noble, let alone the most respected person in the kingdom, of course, Queen Elizabeth often receives gifts. But not only luxury items, the queen often receives gifts in the form of unique and unusual animals. For example, such as in 1968, when she visited Brazil, the local government gave her two slow lorises, which she finally placed in the London zoo.
Before giving these two cool animals, the queen had also received a Jaguar from Brazil, two black otters from Canada, and the most eager was an elephant from Cameroon. Unfortunately, the queen did not make Elizabeth Zoo even though armed with all these animal gifts she could make her own zoo.
4. Queen Has 30 Corgi Dogs
Corgi is a breed of dog with elongated body stature, but all four legs are short. This dog is known to be very spoiled and naughty. Even so, the queen really likes this type, and now she has about 30 tails. The first Corgi dog was given by her father, George VI, in 1933.
The queen’s attention to her dogs is really big. Even once when she learned that one of the royal workers did not treat her pet well, the queen cut his salary. At that time, the worker deliberately put the Corgi dog food in a tray filled with water while laughing.
