When members of the royal family go on tours, members of the press go with them.

The journalists are there to cover the tour by reporting on the engagements being carried out and other work being done as well as making sure they get plenty of photos showcasing the purpose of the trip. But after a long day of work and travel, some reporters try to unwind and enjoy themselves while abroad.

But as a royal correspondent recalled, there was one boozy night when some had a little too much fun while on tour with King Charles and their antics got the monarch pretty angry when they disrupted his routine. Here’s more on that, plus how the late Queen Elizabeth II handled things when her staffers got drunk while partying at Buckingham Palace.

Queen Elizabeth once had to deal with noisy, drunk people as well but it wasn’t on a royal tour; it was in her home.

The late queen had almost 200 staffers who worked in the royal household at Buckingham Palace.

But according to Queen Elizabeth’s former press secretary, Dickie Arbiter, when those employees couldn’t handle their liquor and got too loud their boss made the decision to close the bar down.

In the documentary Secrets of the Royal Palaces, Arbiter explained the staffers got “too worse for wear” and unlike her son, the queen wasn’t going to lose sleep so she “had to get rid” of it....Continue The Full Reading.>’.
