The Queen hosted a royal lunch for Kings and Queens from around the world at Windsor Castle today, as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
The sovereigns of 26 countries were treated to a very British menu with the emphasis on locally sourced produce.
A starter of tartlet of poached egg and asparagus was followed by new season Windsor Lamb with braised potatoes, artichokes, peas, carrots, broad beans, cabbage, and a tomato and basil salad.
Strawberries from Kent were served with vanilla Charlotte for desert.
The sovereigns attending included the Emperor of Japan, the King of Sweden and the Crown Prince of Thailand.
It was reported on Thursday Queen Sofia of Spain did not attend the lunch amid a row over Gibraltar.
