WATCH: Queen Insists On Cutting Cake With Huge Ceremonial Sword

 

Just in case you needed any more reasons to love the Queen, her majesty Queen Elizabeth II raised quite the laugh during a visit to the Eden Project after she insisted on cutting a cake using an enormous ceremonial sword.

 

 

The Queen was attending an event for the launch The Big Lunch initiative last Friday, where she was accompanied by Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge.

 

 

As part of the celebrations, the monarch was invited to cut a large cake – but she decided to do it with style, as a true Queen does, and used a ceremonial sword instead.

 

 

After being handed the knife by Lord-Lieutenant of Cornwall Edward Bolitho, the Queen remarked, ‘I don’t think this is going to work,’ at which someone butted in to tell her that there was a knife available for her to use – but as the monarch insisted, ‘I know there is! This is something that is more unusual.’

 

 

Laughter could be heard ringing throughout the room, including from Kate and Camilla, and all those on social media who enjoy seeing the Queen’s humorous side.

 

The Big Lunch, which will make up part of the Queen’s 2022 platinum jubilee celebrations, is an annual get-together intended to encourage neighbours and communities to get to know each other better!
