Tightening over-drinking rules by Her Majesty is one of Her Majesty’s many ways of curbing the late night culture prevalent in the British capital
It’s a culture rampant in the UK and the UK, in fact, is the only country in the world where drinking does not end at midnight.
So Queen Elizabeth has made it clear that the traditional drink with a bloody eye will be limited in her patronage of top London clubs — dooming it to midnight stocking.
The Queen is not alone in using the authorities to control the night-time commercial activity in the streets of London. A number of other globally famous royals — including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Queen of Denmark — have also taken notes and adjusted their club patterns.
There have even been instances where Queen Elizabeth has intervened to give outright warnings on alcohol and bust further excesses.
It’s certainly one way of ending late night partying with a flourish, but it’s likely also another example of the priorities which the monarch has to juggle — between duties and charities, as well as ensuring the healthy and well-being of her citizens.
The broader nation seems to get along without a hangover of alcohol-fuelled bedlam. The late-night style makes for standout business opportunities for London’s unregulated night crawlers — a growing London pop-up club scene whose only objective is to stay open until dawn.
