Britain’s Queen Elizabeth insisted on cutting a cake using a ceremonial sword at an event on the sidelines of the G7 summit in Cornwall in southern England on Friday
Her efforts prompted laughter from the Duchesses of Cornwall and Cambridge and the assembled crowds.
The Queen had been handed the sword for the task of cutting a large cake marking the Big Lunch at the Eden Project.

“I don’t think this is going to work” says the Queen as she’s handed a whacking great big sword with which to cut a cake 🗡 🍰 👑
