In June 2012, Queen Elizabeth II will celebrate 60 years of reign. The city is at full force with preparation!
Small curiosity: this will be the second time in the history of the United Kingdom that a Queen celebrates the Diamond Jubilee (the first was Queen Victoria).
Fortnum & Mason prepared a line of gourmet products with an exclusive and very chic design that includes everything you can imagine of a Summer picnic in the park, which is a favorite among the British!
This is one of the most traditional and old stores, with over 300 years of existence and steady supplier of its products to royalty.
Queen Elizabeth II was the honorable presence at the launch of this collection, accompanied by Camila, duchess of Cornwall, and Kate, duchess of Cambridge.
I coudn’t help it!
Prepared a wonderful editorial for you.
The Queen´s Jubille Picnic
Of course all items were bought at Fortnum & Mason. Look at this cookie, the most beautiful thing…
The design of this line was inspired in the “Queen´s Beasts”, which are are 10 heraldic statues depicting the genealogy of Queen Elizabeth II (unicorn, dragon, lion and others). For this collection, they were drawn in bright colors with flower garlands and musical instruments.
Taking advantage of a Sunday without rain (another London rarity) I ran to the park to prepare our picnic! The place chosen was St. James Park!
Shall we see the photos?
I was crazy about this musical box filled with cookies.
The music? God Save the Queen!
Even the Queen and the Prince were in my picnic! Very charming in our tea bags…
Tres chiq, no?
