The Royal Family Used to Play Ibble Dibble – Probably False
The show’s Balmoral episode was packed with content, but one of the most interesting things was The Royal Family’s love of the bizarre drinking game “Ibble Dibble.” According to the rules, anyone who messes up while reciting the tongue-twister has a blackened cork pressed on their face. Of course, The Crown’s version of Prime Minister Thatcher failed pathetically and completely ruined the mood.
Curiously, there’s no concrete evidence the Royal Family has ever played Ibble Dibble or any other fun game. Although Prince Andrew did confess Queen Elizabeth banned Monopoly at evening get-togethers because past games became “too competitive.”
