“There is a knife there as well,” someone off camera said.


“There is a knife… ”

“I know there is,” the 95-year-old Queen quipped. “This is something that is more unusual.” Kate Middleton responded with a laugh.

“That slicing’s strange,” Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, said before helping her cut the cake.

“That looks very good,” the Queen added before handing the sword back to a guard.

On Friday evening, the three senior royal women participated in a reception with volunteers organizing next year’s Platinum Jubilee, marking the Queen’s 70 years on the throne, according to People Magazine.

National events at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee include a live concert featuring the world’s biggest stars and a day at the races, according to The Guardian.
