Chain-smoking Queen Margrethe II who tested positive for Covid after Elizabeth's funeral
Her Majesty's funeral earlier this week.But the monarch, 82, is better known for her laid-back lifestyle that reportedly includes scoffing hot dogs and shopping at Lidl - not the usual behaviour you'd expect from royalty.One of her most famous attributes is her love of smoking - according to some reports she has even been known to light up as many as 60 a day.READ MORE: Royal tests positive for Covid days after attending Queen's funeralSeveral years ago the royal was snapped leaving a Lidl supermarket, sipping on a carton of apple juice and smoking, all the while clutching a hot dog.A tweet at the time read: "The Danish Queen: The only queen in the world who walks straight out of Lidl drinking an applejuice, eating a sausage while smoking at the same time. Yep, we love our queen Margrethe."The beloved Queen also had a bizarre passion for archaeology and speaks a whopping five languages - English, French, German, Danish and Swedish.Born in 1940, Margrethe Alexandrine Þórhildur Ingrid is the great-great granddaughter of Queen Victoria - making her Queen Elizabeth II's third cousin.The two reportedly shared a tight bond for decades, both loving dogs and calling each other by the adorable nicknames "Daisy" and "Lilibet".Margrethe came to the throne in 1972 and her ascension was historic, as previously only men had been allowed to rule.As a princess she was extremely popular and married French diplomat Henri de Laborde de Monpezat in 1967.

Queue to see Queen's coffin lying-in-state could stretch staggering 10 miles
Queen lying-in-state could stretch to 10 miles, officials have admitted.Mourners towards the front of the line fought back tears as they solemnly entered Westminster Hall from 5pm today (Wednesday, September 14), to pay their respects to Her Majesty who died a week ago aged 96.The route for those waiting to say farewell to the monarch stretches 6.9 miles over the River Thames and along the South Bank to Southwark Park.

It was a shock to us all.“She has always been a constant in my life.

Man pleads guilty after beating police officer with baseball bat in vicious attack
Australian police officers being attacked by a thug with a baseball bat, with one of the cops admitting he feared for his life.Body-cam cameras from the Victoria policemen, show senior constable Rowan Baldham being brutally beaten by Steven Clearly, before his partner constable William Ringin came to his aid, stopping the vicious assault.The attack, which happened last October, came after a teenage boy was being questioned for blocking traffic and not wearing a mask during the state’s period of coronavirus restrictions.READ NEXT: Putin recruiting Grandad's Army after losing 50,000 soldiers in UkraineThe 15-year-old-old boy could be seen asking for help on a walkie-talkie and not long after, Clearly pulled up in a white car, got out and told the lad to get off home.The 50-year-old man was armed with a baseball bat hidden in a black sheaf and when the cops told him to back off, the youngster then suddenly tried to grab Ringin’s gun.As it all kicked off, Clearly then proceeded to batter Baldham over the head with the weapon several times, with Ringing stepping into disarm him, and using the bat to knock Clearly – who by now had picked up a discarded taser – to the ground.As Baldham crouched on the ground with blood gushing from a head wound, Ringin then squirted capsicum spray into Clearly’s face, while both officers tasered him before he surrendered.Clearly could be heard saying: “Gentleman. I am the King.
