World News – GB – How to make the scones for Queen Elizabeth’s Garden Parties


The coronavirus pandemic has brought changes in almost every walk of life and the British royal family is no different

Most of the big royal events planned for 2020 have been canceled or significantly reduced in favor of virtual engagements

The Garden Parties – hosted by the Queen during the British summer – were part of the festivities that were abandoned due to the global health crisis

It was a blow not only for Her Majesty, but also for the thousands of guests from all over the UK and the Commonwealth who were invited to have tea with the Monarch

Each year, Queen Elizabeth welcomes more than 30,000 guests for tea in the grounds of Buckingham Palace in London or Holyroodhouse Palace in Edinburgh

Three garden parties take place in London and the last of the season takes place in Scotland

For fans of the British monarchy, the royal pastry chefs have decided to share the popular recipe for fruit scones served at Garden Parties

This recipe was posted to the Royal Family’s Instagram account in May, shortly after it was announced that the holidays would not be held this year

In a typical year in royal residences, over 27,000 cups of tea, 20,000 scones and 20,000 slices of cake are consumed

Parties are a way for the monarch to thank people for the positive impact they have in their communities and to recognize public service

The Queen is often joined by members of her family, including Prince Charles, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Anne and other members of the royal family

Garden parties are a royal tradition that dates back to the 1860s, having started during the reign of Queen Victoria

And now the long-kept secret recipe is here to share, including an ingredient that has had royal fans scratching their heads outside the Commonwealth
