Queen Elizabeth Revealed Her Favorite Meal to Bring People Together

Queen Elizabeth and Meghan Markle share the same belief: Food can bring people together! The 93-year-old monarch shared her favorite meal to serve.

During a party held in the Buckingham Palace on Tuesday, Queen Elizabeth revealed that meals could bring together, specifically, “a bit of toast and tea goes a long way." The event celebrated all faith groups’ contributions and discussed the problems of communities.

Her Majesty said she saw food as an avenue to bring people from all walks of life – faith and traditions, together. Like the Queen, the Duchess of Sussex had a fundraising cookbook called “Together: Our Community Cookbook” last year, which highlighted how communities could come together through food.

The event raised over $500,000, which will benefit the community around the Grenfell Tower, where 72 people died in a fire two years ago. Markle’s love for food came even before she met Prince Harry, which she shared in her lifestyle blog, “The Tig.”

Guests of the Queen were of Christian, Muslim, and Jewish descent, among others, who live in the country. In attendance were Nighat Khan from New Vision 4 Women in London, which supports women through discussions over bread, and Anna Dyson, who founded ToastLoveCoffee.

The celebration was to thank and “recognize those bringing about positive change in their local neighborhoods and celebrate the work being done to support people of all ages and backgrounds,” a palace spokesman said.

The Queen donned in a white floral dress, white gloves, and a black handbag, during the event. She added a touch of elegance to her outfit by accessorizing with pearls and showed no signs of slowing down despite her recent birthday.

Last week, she with the royal family attended the much-anticipated five-day horse event, the Royal Ascot. According to the Kensington Royal Instagram:

"The Queen is owner and breeder of many thoroughbred horses and shares her interest in horses with many members of her family — and The Queen's own horses have won races at Royal Ascot a number of times.”
