The Queen has never lifted a dumbbell or taken part in intense physical exercise, says Sajjad Choudhury in Medium. Yet our 95-year-old monarch lives on and on, almost as active as ever. When she visited George Bush Sr at the White House in the 1990s, he was astonished by her ability to walk so briskly that it “left even the Secret Service panting”. And, despite her recent health scare, she’s determined to keep riding. Her secret? Long walks every day at about 2.30pm. And a simple, nutritious diet with the occasional treat.
