Royal-tea (yep, I went there)

Cupcake and Tall Girl, where have you been?
We've been to London to visit the Queen!

For real.

Cupcake:  The most indulgent chocolate mousse brownie, stamped with a gold crown on top.

TG: fruitcake! You can’t go to a garden party at Buckingham Palace without eating a slice of fruitcake.


Cupcake: Queeny's commanding voice when asking a family what kind of business they run and will their daughters take over when they retire.

TG: A military band playing unexpected songs (Puttin’ on the Ritz, Indiana Jones theme song, and Mamma Mia – Her Maj’s top three?).


Cupcake: The carpet inside the red/pink drawing room on our way to the back garden. So soft and cushy under our feet :)

TG: The Queen’s hem with my shoe. Not really, but I could have.



Cupcake:  Hats in every colour, shape and size and Kate Middleton's tiny waist.  

TG: The Queen’s impeccable makeup. Yes, we were that close. It’s ok to feel jealous.

Overall feeling

Cupcake:  Like I was on a movie set. It's almost as if the Royal Fam were actors and I was an extra on the set. I just couldn't believe they were a meter away from us. SO exciting!

TG: Highly strung with excitement and anticipation; it was all very surreal.


  1. At last! I've been waiting for this post. What an amazing opportunity for both of you!

    1. It really was amazing, and I'm so glad we were able to go!
