Queen Elizabeth II

Elizabeth II was Queen of the United Kingdom and 15 other Commonwealth realms. Elizabeth was born in Mayfair, London, as the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York (later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth). Her father ascended the throne on the abdication of his brother King Edward VIII in 1936, from which time she was the heir presumptive. In 1947 she married Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, with whom she has four children: Charles, Prince of Wales; Anne, Princess Royal; Prince Andrew, Duke of York; and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex.

The Queen’s Majestic Breakfast

According to a British magazine, The Goring hotel is a royal family favourite. I decided to make one of their breakfast items on their menu, the Eggs en cocotte. I substituted the haddock for salmon however as it’s easily accessible and added asparagus on toast as a side for a little more oomph. Whilst the look isn’t a majestic as I hoped, the taste has layers of delight, and really that’s all that matters!!
