Staff and residents at Hampton Grove care home in Peterborough enjoyed a truly royal moment marking the date of the Queen’s 96th birthday on April 21.

They were delighted to welcome Queen Elizabeth II (albeit in cardboard) to join them as they hosted their ‘royal high tea’ in her honour. Having her watch over the occasion made the day even more special.

The chef and hospitality team concocted a selection of freshly baked cookies, pastries and cakes for the occasion, washed down with pots of tea.

Residents took part in a variety of royal-themed events, including watching old newsreels and catching up with official photography from today and over the years.

Krzysztof Krzysztofiak, General Manager of Hampton Grove, said: ‘Our residents love to party and they love the Queen, so they all enjoyed tea and cakes and remember her reign and the many birthday celebrations they attended. attended in his honor.

“The Queen is an amazing woman who has been through so much lately, so this was a wonderful way to remember her and honor her.”
