The more you know.

Queen Elizabeth never fails to surprise us.

From the revelation that she owns not one but two iPods, to the equally fascinating news that she has made millions off her prized race horses, it seems like there's no limit to the Queen's domain. And today, we've learned that she actually owns a McDonald's in England. Yup. Queen to 16 realms, great-grandmother to five, and fast-food franchise owner.

A McDonald's located about 80 miles outside London in Banbury Gateway Shopping Park is owned by the Queen's Crown Estate, according to Business Insider. While that means the Queen doesn't own the McDonald's personally, it's part of a larger shopping center that opened in 2016 and is owned by the Crown Estate, Today reports.

This particular McDonald's location has free WiFi, Samsung tablets, digital menu boards, and phone charging stations, along with menu items that are specific to UK-based McDonald's, like a "proper English breakfast."

If you're hoping to run into the monarch at the location, you might be out of luck. According to Today, no royal has visited Banbury since the Queen visited back in 2008. And the monarch herself keeps to a pretty specific diet that doesn't include a Big Mac and fries. But hey, why not treat yourself to a royal meal at the Queen's McDonald's anyway!
