YOUR Alexa now has a quiz that can reveal your royal credentials.
In celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this week, find out exactly how royal you are.
Sunday 5 June will mark the Queen’s 70th anniversary as British monarch.
Millions of Brits enjoy two days off on Thursday and Friday as national holidays.
And maybe you want to spend a few moments of that free time with Alexa.
Starting today, you can now ask, “Alexa, how royal am I?”
You will then be asked a series of questions to see if you could pass as king.
These include revealing the name of the Queen’s first Corgi, the number of Prime Ministers she’s met, or her favorite football team.
“The anniversary is a unique and historic occasion and I’m sure many Brits across the country are wondering if they could live royal life themselves,” said royal expert Jennie Bond.
“I’m fortunate to have spent quite a bit of time with the royal family, so I know exactly what it takes to keep company with those at Buckingham Palace.
“I’m so glad I passed my knowledge on to Alexa – and now Brits everywhere can take the quiz to find out how royal they are.”
If you are unfamiliar with the intricacies of monarchy, you can use it as an opportunity to brush up on your knowledge.
There are also plenty of Alexa-friendly questions you can ask that will help you revise:
- Alexa, should I put cream or jam on a scone first?
- Alexa, how do you pronounce Scone?
- Alexa, how do you hold a cup of tea correctly?
- Alexa, how do you drink afternoon tea like the queen?
- Alexa, how do I properly stir a cup of tea?
- Alexa, what is the correct way to eat sandwiches at Afternoon Tea?
“When I started out as a young chef at Buckingham Palace, it was fascinating to see how important afternoon tea was to the Queen,” said Darren McGrady, the Queen’s former chef.
“It is therefore a pleasure to be able to share my knowledge of the tradition via Alexa. In my experience, the Queen enjoys a full afternoon tea with sandwiches and pastries.
“Two kinds of sandwiches, often English York ham with English mustard and pickle, with the skin removed and to the accompaniment of Pimm sent to the royal cellars.”
Here are some more royal questions to ask Alexa:
- Alexa, how do I pronounce Scone?
- Alexa, how old is the queen?
- Alexa, how many corgis does the queen have?
- Alexa, does the Queen need a passport?
