An increasing number of staff members at Buckingham Palace, where the UK’s royal family hangs out, have been bringing people they meet on Grindr and Tinder back to their living quarters. The internet is now theorizing that this is raising the Queen’s blood pressure and that police at the palace are worried about how many guests are staying overnight without a prior vetting. Some “well-placed” sources told the Daily Mail UK that “a number” of the Queen’s staff are using online dating sites and apps. There are over 800 staff members, and considering online dating’s popularity, it’s hard to find that surprising. Butlers, maids and cooks are not allowed to bring guests into Buckingham Palace, but they can sign in overnight visitors to their living quarters (at nearby St. James’ Palace and the Royal Mews). This has apparently been going on for quite a while, but the Palace police are reportedly just now beginning to actively address the issue because dating apps are exploding in popularity.
