Queen Elizabeth Attends Big Lunch Meet On Her Official Birthday

Queen Elizabeth was also invited to cut a cake to end the Big Lunch celebrations Saturday.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth Saturday attended a Big Lunch get together, which forms part of her platinum jubilee celebrations, in Cornwall. Saturday marked her official birthday, the first since the death of her husband Prince Philip in April this year.

"Her Majesty and Their Royal Highnesses met inspiring local volunteers, thanking them for their efforts throughout the pandemic," said a post by the official Twitter handle of The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall.

The 95-year-old monarch is The Duchess of Cornwall and The Duchess of Cambridge.

"The Duchess of Cornwall is Patron of The Big Lunch - an initiative that encourages people to come together to share food and friendship and make new connections. The Big Jubilee Lunch will form part of The Queen's Platinum Jubilee Celebrations!" they said.

The Queen was also invited to cut a cake to end the Big Lunch celebrations Saturday.

Earlier in the day, she viewed a military ceremony at Windsor Castle to mark her official birthday, which is marked in June, though her actual birthday is April 21. She was accompanied by her cousin Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, at the 'Trooping the Colour' ceremony, according to Reuters .

During the 'Trooping the Colour' ceremony, soldiers wearing their scarlet uniforms and tall bearskin hats parade through central London, the report said. But the ceremony had been scaled down over the last two years in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.
