Queen's Spoons Stolen

Guests of Elizabeth II brought silverware from the era of George III from the palace.

About 5,000 guests were invited to Buckingham Palace for a reception in the Queen's garden. Once upon a time, such receptions were the epitome of respectability. But not today.

While the guests were strolling through the garden, Queen Elizabeth with Princes Philip and Andrew and the Duke of Gloucester drank tea in the gazebo. Tea was served with strawberries and cream, sandwiches and gingerbread pie. During the tea party, a hailstorm began, a real storm, and Elizabeth invited the guests to take refuge in the gazebo, where about 60 people were crowded.

And then the servants discovered that the table was missing plates and cups with royal monograms, forks and spoons from the era of George III, as well as several items from the Victorian era. The thieves must have put them in coat pockets or handbags.

Representatives of the palace refuse to comment on the incident, but, as it became known to the Daily Mail, everyone in the palace is talking about how the attackers took advantage of the queen's kindness and hospitality.
