Her Majesty supposedly served afternoon tea on a daily basis, with her favourite teas including Assam and Earl Grey, so it'll be no surprise her love of the luxury afternoon treat was passed down to her son King Charles. Perfect for your coronation weekend, an afternoon tea hamper is a great way to celebrate His Majesty's momentous event on 6 May.

Former royal chef Darren McGrady told HELLO! at the time: "The royal chefs send a whole cake up to Her Majesty every day for tea. She will sometimes take a slice and then it is never seen at the royal table again. [The cake is sent to the staff for their afternoon tea.]

"The chocolate biscuit cake is the only cake that goes up to the royal table every day until it has all gone – sometimes this means it following her to Windsor Castle for the weekend," Darren said.
