    Or at any other shop for that matter, like online or anything. If so, does she get MAJOR discounts? Or is everything free?

    Does she ever nip down to the corner shop? I've just been so curious, no joke

    :stupido3:
    It's not the Queen, but he is Royal - Prince Charles has been seen a number of times shopping at Waitrose in Cirencester, sometimes with Camilla.

    William and Kate have been seen in Tesco at Bangor, North Wales and at Spa in Holyhead, Anglesey.

    It really wouldn't be Harrods, given the events of '97/98!
    What happened in Harrods in 97/98?

    She probably doesn't do anything herself as she clearly thinks she's superior to everyone else! She should wipe her own bum though haha

    Princess Diana? Suspicious death? Relationship with the foreign son of the former owner of Harrods?

    Princess Diana and her partner, Dodi Fayed, the son of Mohammed Al-Fayed who owned Harrods at the time were both killed in a car crash together. Mohammed Al-Fayed accused The DofE and Prince Charles of killing Diana and his son. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mohamed...Dodi.27s_death

    I've always thought the Queen shopped at Fortnum and Mason's. I say "Shopped" but I think she just writes out a list and one of her staff go and get it.

    3663, Fortnum & Masons are the two biggies.

    There are a lot of companies who supply the royal households directly mind: http://www.royalwarrant.org/rwha-search

    She doesn't shop there herself normally, but does make the odd visit to Fortnum & Mason which normally gets some media attention

    You're jealous of the Queen? Who has to go on working (for example standing in freezing weather for hours watching ships go by) into her 80s and presumably 90s?

    Well she obviously thinks she's still up to it.

    If not, she could just abdicate.

    Well, whatever. I hardly think she does it for the glamour of having servants and chauffeured rides though.

    They often prepare their own food, but I doubt they shop for it. The royals are famous for their BBQ's when in Scotand,and the Queen is known to cook decent scrambled eggs, if that counts as cooking.
    When Maggie Thatcher used to go to Balmoral once a year, they would have dinner in a little wooden hut in the castle grounds and then have an argument about who would do the washing up! No joke, it was on a channel 4 documentary the other day.
