Afternoon tea at Sandringham looks simply divine

The Sandringham website reveals: "Our very special Takeaway Picnic Afternoon Tea will be delicately packaged in commemorative Platinum Jubilee designs, ready for you to collect and enjoy in the spot of your choosing - either in the Parkland or at home!

"Picnic Takeaway Afternoon Tea includes a choice of five mini homemade sandwiches, freshly baked scones with Sandringham Estate preserve and clotted cream, five mini delicious pastries served with tea or coffee."

The picnic afternoon tea costs £35 for two adults and £16.50 for two children, with the price based on two people sharing. To book, simply go onto Sandringham's website and select a date and time. On arrival, the collection of afternoon teas is from the Terrace Takeaway Café.

We can't think of a more royal way of celebrating the monarch's Platinum Jubilee than with a royal afternoon tea at her own home! Even more exciting, is many of the products in the tea are grown on the Sandringham Estate.

There was much excitement about the royal picnic news on the Sandringham Instagram page, with one fan posting: "Oh this sounds just lovely," and another writing, "This looks amazing."

We predict these regal picnic teas will sell out fast – so book yours while you can.
