The Queen’s sleep routine is so simple but so effective, and she apparently sticks to it every single night

Royal fan or not, we’re all pretty fascinated by our monarch and her steadfast work ethic – and it turns out, the Queen’s sleep routine might just be one of her best wellness secrets.

At 95 years young, she’s set to celebrate 70 years on the throne in February 2022. And though she’s one busy lady, it’s said that she always makes sure that she gets a good night’s sleep by sticking to some tried and tested rules.

Apparently, Her Majesty always goes to bed at the same time every night, 11pm, and sleeps for eight and a half hours – meaning she wakes at 7.30am each day. Sounds reasonable to us. 

It’s also reported that The Queen likes to read a little in bed before turning in, which is proven to be a great aid in relaxing the mind before sleep.

Simple but effective – we expected nothing less from our monarch. In fact, many will be happy to learn that the Queen’s sleep routine is so doable – since it’s the most searched-for on Google ahead of anyone else in the royal family.

According to, the Queen’s sleep and exercise routine generates the biggest buzz online, and is searched 136% more on average than the routines of all other royals, including Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.

The Duchess of Cambridge came in close second, however, and in case you’re wondering – her sleep routine is royally similar to the Queen’s. Apparently, she heads to bed at 10.30 each evening in order to get a good night’s sleep.

Kate also leads an active lifestyle, often talking about how she loves to get outdoors – and it’s thought that she runs or walks every day. Regular exercise is said to help with sleep, too, and the Queen is also fond of walking daily.
