A Channel 5 documentary titled “Inside Fortnum And Mason: The Queen’s Grocer”, reveals how Queen Elizabeth gave back to British troops.
In 2012, while celebrating her Diamond Jubilee (60 years on the throne), the Queen sent 15,000 tins of tea and biscuits to troops around the world.
Fortum and Mason is nicknamed “The Queen’s Grocer” as they hold the royal warrant to supply tea and other grocery items to Buckingham Palace.
“The Queen likes Earl Grey tea, she has Earl Grey in the morning,” former press secretary Dickie Arbiter said. “But the Assam tea is also available in Buckingham Palace.”
Queen Elizabeth’s next jubilee will be her Platinum Jubilee in 2022 (70 years on the throne) when she is 96-years-old. The celebration is expected to be the biggest one yet.
