Why use a knife when you can use a sword, right? And that’s just what Queen Elizabeth did when she had to cut a cake at an event.

Why use a knife when you can use a sword, right?
And that’s just what Queen Elizabeth did when she had to cut a cake at the Big Lunch initiative on Friday.
According to the organisation’s website, “The Big Lunch connects people and encourages friendlier, safer neighbourhoods where people start to share more.” The initiative will be part of the official celebrations for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022.
Accompanied by the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge, the monarch met with volunteers to thank them for their efforts in supporting their communities through the past year’s challenges.

During the event, the Queen was presented with the cake and handed a sword by the Lord-Lieutenant of Cornwall, Edward Bolitho to cut it.
When an aide told her majesty that a knife was available, she replied: ‘I know there is, this is more unusual.”
