It seems that knives just won't cut it for Queen Elizabeth II anymore.
Her Majesty opted for something a little more flashy (and deadly) when she attended a reception during the G7 Leaders Summit. In a post shared on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Instagram account, we see the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Cornwall laughing next to Queen Elizabeth, who is caught yielding a giant sword.
The caption said, “Following the Leaders’ reception The Queen, The Duchess of Cornwall and The Duchess of Cambridge attended a reception marking the Big Lunch, which will form part of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in 2022.”
As it turns out, the queen was the one who jokingly decided to use a sword to cut the sheet cake. According to E!, Her Majesty borrowed the blade from one of her royal representatives, the Lord-Lieutenant of Cornwall, Edward Bolitho. When someone pointed out that there was a knife nearby, the queen said, “I know there is. This is something more unusual.”
