We wouldn't say no to a cup of tea with The Duchess either

A new survey by Care UK has revealed more Britons would like to share a hot cuppa with Kate Middleton than her grandmother in law, The Queen.

The survey comes as the nation prepares to enjoy plenty of hot drinks during Dementia UK's Time for a Cuppa week, from March 1 to 8.

As well as The Queen and The Duchess of Cambridge, Sir Winston Churchill, Elizabeth Taylor and Alfred Hitchcock were all popular choices to share a cup of tea with.

But no celeb scored as highly with the over 55s than their children when it comes to their cuppa companion of choice. Over 50% saying they would choose children from within their own circle of family and friends for a nice tea and biscuit moment.

Sharing family news is the most popular way people spend their tea breaks together, with nearly 75% choosing it as their conversation of choice, followed by 42% saying they liked to talk about happy memories.

The traditional cuppa also plays a more serious role in people's lives, with just under 60% of people saying they had shared a major piece of news with a friend or relative over a cup of tea.
