‘Her secret weapon’: Queen Elizabeth uses ‘interesting’ treat to beat jet lag

Queen Elizabeth has spent a huge part of her time as Monarch travelling around the world representing the UK. As a result, she is no stranger to the usual burdens of international travel, including jet lag.

However, thanks to her experience as a global Jetsetter, Her Majesty is said to have come up with a few clear ways to make the travel experience more comfortable.

When it comes to jet lag, experts say she has her own “secret weapon” which apparently cures jet lag.

It is reported that Queen Elizabeth is a huge fan of barley sugar, which she consumes in the form of hard-boiled sweets.

The Monarch is said to swear by these traditional candy shop treats for helping with time zone changes.

He compared the Queen’s tip to adjusting meal times to match the destination a traveller is in.

This can, in turn, help aid a bedtime that is also in line with the time zone.

“Carrying out your daily habits like eating and sleeping in line with your new destination’s time zone – both en-route and on arrival – helps re-synchronise our body clock to our new environment,” added Mr Knight.

Queen Elizabeth’s jet lag tip isn’t the only way she ensures comfort while travelling.

Speaking as part of the Channel 5 documentary, Mr Laurie said: “Do you know, they used to love it,” said Mr Laurie.

“I think it’s such a lovely change from all that fancy food which comes first class!”

The Monarch is said to request Malvern bottled water wherever she goes.

Former royal spokesperson Dickie Arbiter revealed: “The only thing the Queen requests to have wherever she is is Malvern Water.

“She likes Malvern water, it’s refreshing and they usually take lots of it with her.”
