Cape Town – Move over cucumber sandwiches, Queen Elizabeth owns a McDonald’s and we could totally see her biting into a BigMac.

According to Marie Claire, having a personal poet and ATM aren’t the only perks of being a royal. 


While the Crown Estate has ownership of many castles, as well as iconic points of interest such as the Savoy Hotel and Ascot Racecourse, it also owns the land on which the Banbury Gate Shopping Centre is built – which is home to a McDonald’s.

The property is located about 80 miles (129km) outside of London and was opened in 2015, reports Business Insider. Furthermore, the centre - in which the Mickey D's is running - is part of a larger shopping centre that includes a Costa Coffee, Starbucks and Marks & Spencer.

Okay, so the queen doesn’t personally own it. But it is still maintained by royalty.

Unfortunately, while the royal family may own a franchise of the fast food chain they don’t necessarily eat the fast food.

A representative for the shopping centre told Today that the last time a royal was seen in Banbury was in 2008 when the queen paid a visit. The representative added that it is unlikely that the royals even eat McDonald’s at all.

We really don't think any of the royal family go to McDonald's and they certainly haven't been to the one at Banbury Gateway.
