The Queen has given up martinis and gin on medical advice to watch TV with her friend Mabel, according to reports.

She is still undertaking light duties, but is reported to be “knackered” and has “given up lunchtime gin and evening martini” after receiving the advice from her doctors, it's claimed.

Earlier this month OK reported she had been asked to give up her tipples.

And now sources tell the Sunday Times she will instead watch TV with her friend Mabel Anderson,.

She is said to enjoy spending time with fellow 95-year-old and royal nanny who looked after the Queen’s own children.

A source said: “The Queen rings her up sometimes and Mabel goes and watches television with her. They are very cosy.”

It’s been a tough year for the monarch who was isolated at Windsor during the pandemic and earlier this year lost her husband the Duke of Edinburgh, who had been her companion for 73 years.

It also said Queen Elizabeth wants to “keep busy but dry” and has ditched her lunchtime gin and Dubonnet and evening Martini on medical advice.

The source said: “She is fine, but needs the rest – she is saving her energy for Cop.”

Cop26, the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, is being held at the beginning of next month in Glasgow and the Queen is expected to attend the event which will be attended by world leaders.

The Queen was reportedly recently advised to go easy on the martinis after doctors advised her to only drink on special occasions.

The move, according to OK, was to ensure she stays as healthy as possible ahead of her Platinum Jubilee celebration in June next year.

The Queen rarely drinks in public but is said to enjoy a drink during her evenings at home.

Buckingham Palace has been contacted by the Daily Star for comment.
