The Queen of Britain cuts her birthday cake in a strange way

Queen Elizabeth revealed her ability to cut her birthday cake in her own way at a party she attended, accompanied by the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Cornwall.

When the 95-year-old attended a private reception along with Kate Middleton and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, she decided to ditch an ordinary cookie-cutter for a sword.

And media outlets published a video clip of this moment, showing the Queen using the "celebration sword" to cut a large white and green cake surrounded by strawberries.

After being advised to use her hands when she first raised the sword, a nearby attendant tried to tell the Queen there was a knife, and between laughter and cheers from the audience, Camilla helped the Queen push the 90cm sword down into the decorated cake.

According to royal protocol, the Queen celebrates her "official birthday" usually on the second Saturday in June when there is a greater likelihood of good weather at the Christmas Parade, also known as Trooping the Color, according to the royal family's website. .

Meanwhile, organizers of the Platinum Jubilee are preparing to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the accession of Queen Elizabeth, which is scheduled to take place in February 2022.
