The June Edition
There is a great deal of excitement and celebration in the UK this weekend as we celebrate HM Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee. The Queen, who is celebrating 70 years on the throne, is the longest reigning monarch in UK history. We have a two-day Bank Holiday long weekend, from Thursday 3rd June to Sunday 5th June. There’s so much going on locally and nationally – a huge party at Buckingham Palace, street parties and fêtes, services of Thanksgiving, the Trooping of the Colour and more. On Friday our friends hosted a street party which was lots of fun.
I was in London the week before last and if you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen London getting dressed up to celebrate our Queen in my stories. A lot of people have decorated their homes as well. It’s a very patriotic weekend!
As for me, I’m very grateful to The Queen to give me an extra long birthday weekend this year. I’ll be celebrating my birthday with my family on Sunday evening with dinner in the Dining Room at Cliveden.
While I was in London, I also visited Kensington Palace and the Life Through a Royal Lens exhibit as well as the wonderful Beatrix Potter: Drawn to Nature exhibit at The Victoria & Albert Museum. We had some lovely meals at a some of my favourite London restaurants.
June Edition – What’s Cooking In My Kitchen?
I’ve been making my easy versions of lots of classic British recipes – including Coronation Chicken, originally served at HM The Queen’s Coronation in 1953.
Coronation chicken makes lovely tea sandwiches too, perfect for a delicious Afternoon Tea.
Speaking of Afternoon Tea, I’ve got lots of Ideas and Recipes for a Platinum Jubilee Afternoon Tea – or any celebration tea for that matter!

Make busy weeknights extra special with this tasty one dish dinner from Miz Helen of Miz Helen’s Country Cottage. Her Lemon Skillet Chicken with Orzo and Spinach is wholesome and sure to please.
Perfect for picnics and easy lunches, this fresh and Crunchy Asian Cole Slaw with Peanut Dressing from Mary of Pots and Planes is plant based so it’s vegan friendly too.
