As one may imagine, the Queen’s McDonald’s definitely isn’t your typical, run-of-the-mill fast food joint. According to Hello Magazine, it’s decked out with luxurious leather sofas, lavish Eames chairs, pearlescent laminate floors, digital menu boards, and (gasp!) table service. So chic! What better way to enjoy an array of McNuggets and a big ol’ bucket of fries?
Speaking of menu items, McDonald’s restaurants in England offer fare that’s a bit different than items in the U.S. For example, if you ever find yourself in the United Kingdom, you can order Spicy Nacho Cheese Wedges, a banana shake, a Chicken Legend sandwich, or even a chocolatey donut for a sweet breakfast or dessert (via The Travel). McDonald’s UK also offers a variety of vegan options, including Veggie Dippers (via McDonald’s UK). (Hint, hint, America!) Even the portion sizes and European ingredient regulations differ, according to a taste test conducted by Insider.
While Her Majesty is the owner of one of the most upscale McDonald’s on the planet, there is no word on whether or not she is a fan of the chain’s food. And here’s another fun fact: Queen Elizabeth II owns every dolphin in the UK and the swans in the Thames, among other animals (via Travel and Leisure).
