The Queen has just launched her very own prosecco brand

Now we need to try this.

Everyone seems to be heading into the alcohol industry, Kylie Minogue and Sarah Jessica Parker both have wine, Graham Norton released a gin collection and now The Queen is jumping on the bandwagon.

The head of the British royal family has just launched her own prosecco ahead of Christmas, and we really can’t say we predicted this one.

Queen Elizabeth launched her own brand 200ml bottles of vintage prosecco at her Norfolk estate.

Spending Christmas at Windsor Castle this year due to concern over the spread of Covid, it sounds like she’ll need the prosecco.

Named after the spot she usually spends the holidays, Sandringham Prosecco has already gone on sale at the estate itself, but you’ll be paying for it if you want a taste.

Decorated in robins, holly branches, and fir trees, one 200ml bottle will cost you £15, but despite the steep price, it’s flying off the shelves.

The prosecco is extra dry and is made in Italy and has 11% alcohol.

The Queen is currently restricted to drinking only on special occasions due to her health, but we can only assume she’ll have a glass at Christmas.

This isn’t the first time Sandringham has released an alcohol brand, releasing a gin distilled on the estate in 2020.

The Queen also launched her own beer range made from organic Laureate Spring Barley from the Sandringham gardens.

The new prosecco released comes just after the Queen was forced to cancel their tradition of having a family Christmas at Sandringham due to Omicron fears.

The Queen has also suffered a number of health scares over the last few months, ultimately deciding that it would be best if the royal family spent the holidays apart this year but are expected to meet at some point over the holidays.
