We've been to London to visit the Queen!
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.
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.
