Revealed: The Queen asks for DVDs from her favorite shows, including The Bill, so that she can catch up with Balmoral, Royal Aide claims
- Royal source revealed the queen, 93, uses her summer vacation to catch up on TV
- The favorite program of The Queen is the ITV police drama The Bill
- Requests DVD & # 39; s from BBC and receives a personalized collection for playback
- Queen will travel to Balmoral tomorrow after meeting the new prime minister
The Queen receives a personalized DVD collection every year to enable her to catch up on the latest TV shows during her summer vacation in Balmoral, according to a former royal assistant.
Her Majesty, 93, is expected to travel to Aberdeenshire tomorrow to mid-October to enjoy the royal duties of a summer vacation.
A former assistant told The sun that a personalized collection is requested each year before the summer break, with the queen preferring to catch television programs on DVD rather than streaming.
The summer vacation can also give the royal the chance to watch her favorite TV show again, with another royal courtier who reveals that the ITV police drama is The Bill, which ended in 2010.
The Queen, 93, reportedly requested a collection of BBC DVDs every year before her summer vacation at Balmoral.
It is assumed that every year a private secretary sends a list of the shows that the queen would like to catch up with at the Special Services department of the BBC.
A collection is then compiled on DVDs, both from the BBC's own output and from the independent channels.
An assistant who worked at Balmoral revealed: & # 39; The Queen likes them in the form of individual disks, although it would of course be easier to transfer them digitally. & # 39;
They added: & # 39; You could call that old-fashioned, but that's the way she prefers to look at her. & # 39;

A senior courtier once asked the sovereign her favorite TV show and she promptly replied that it was The Bill.
They added that the queen & # 39; disappointed & # 39; was when the drama ended in 2010, and explained that the queen did not like & # 39; those episodes where police officers were & # 39 ;, did not like.
Actor Paul Nicholls, who also played in Eastenders, claimed & # 39; the list & # 39; having seen and confirmed that the series was a royal favorite.
He said: & # 39; I have seen that list. In addition to The Bill, there were Keeping Up Appearances, Midsomer Murders, New Tricks, Last Of The Summer Wine and the complete Doctor Who. & # 39;

It is believed that Prince Harry and Meghan will join the Queen in Aberdeenshire for their first family vacation with their son Archie in Balmoral
It comes after Katie Nicholl has revealed that Meghan and Harry would spend their first summer vacation with baby Archie in Balmoral with the queen.
She said the Duke of Edinburgh would join the Queen in Aberdeenshire and said: & # 39; The Sussexes are coming for the first time and of course taking little Archie with them for his first summer family holiday. & # 39;
The royal author suggested that the royals spend their time walking, fishing, and spending family time together.
Katie said it was likely that the Sussexes would spend the birthday of the Duchess in Scotland and said: & Meghan is celebrating her 38th birthday in early August on August 4, it's (Balmoral) a fun place to do it – so probably a birthday tea there. & # 39;
