Last week saw the Queen celebrating a very special 90th birthday with the traditional Trooping the Colour and Fly-past of the Royal Air Force over Buckingham Palace on Saturday 11th June. Did you know the Queen has 2 birthdays and was actually born on 21st April, but it has long been customary to celebrate the King or Queen’s birthday on a different date in the summer?
To honour this very special birthday, I hosted a Royal Afternoon Tea and gave a talk about the Royal Family on 9th June. My talented chef husband, Chris Rennoldson (Leiths Food and Wine Diploma graduate, @citytochef), prepared an absolutely delicious, traditional English afternoon tea, including cucumber sandwiches, scones and lemon drizzle loaf. Meanwhile I shared some very interesting royal stories and answered some of the very common questions I get asked about the Royal Family. Fun was had by all!
