The Queen and Her Tea Party Guest




When you get to the age of 96 and you are possibly the most famous person in the world, who do you ask to tea to help celebrate a special anniversary?

The Queen chose an iconic celebrity, the star of films and books - but not, in fact, from the UK at all but from Peru. Thousands of people gathered at Buckingham Palace for a concert to mark her Platinum Jubilee. Yes, she's been on the throne for an incredible 70 years. 

She wasn't able to attend as she has some mobility issues - well, she is 96 after all! But she surprised everyone by sending this video of her entertaining an icon. It made me laugh! I hope you enjoy it too.

  1. I'm a huge fan of the Queen. I enjoyed the full clip of her with Paddington Bear.

    1. It is. Her mother was lived to 101, so longevity is in the genes.

  3. That's a cute video. I'm glad she is still around, I know it won't be for too much longer, but I hope she makes it to her 100th birthday. She does miss Philip though, she just looks a tiny bit lost without him by her side.

    1. I agree with you about Prince Philip. He was obviously the love of her life.

    2. I've never been a follower of royalty but this romance always struck me as epic and inspiring. Bless her soul.
