One of the queen’s relatives has blurted out that the monarch has a secret “liquor tunnel” under a royal palace.
Princess Eugenie’s husband Jack Brooksbank let news of the secret tunnel escape at a party. The party, sponsored by Brooksbank’s own liquor brand Casamigos, brought together many prominent Londoners, including the Royal Daily Mail editor-in-chief Richard Eden. Maybe a few drinks had already been drunk when Brooksbank revealed the details of the secret tunnel to Eden?
Eden claimed that Brooksbank said: “There is one at the Dukes Bar at St James’s Palace. I haven’t used it yet, but would like to check it out.”
The Dukes Bar is one of the tallest bars in London, located in the Duke Hotel, in the illustrious suburb of Mayfair. The bar is said to make a pretty good martini, a fact that would please Queen Elizabeth II, who enjoys one of James Bond’s favorite drinks most nights.
The tunnel to Dukes isn’t the Queen’s only secret passage. A segment on Good Morning Britain a few years ago revealed that the mirror in the white living room of Buckingham Palace is actually a door, behind which is a tunnel leading to the Queen’s private bedrooms. It seems the queen likes to use the tunnel to make a surprise entrance.
This weekend, the Queen attended the official opening of the Sixth Session of the Scottish Parliament. She was joined in Edinburgh by Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, who in Scotland are known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay. During the ceremony, the Queen reflected on the “deep and lasting affection” she and her late husband, Prince Philip, shared for Scotland.
