he Queen has met a former cookery school student who helped perfect the dish forever associated with the start of her reign, coronation chicken.

On the eve of the monarch reaching her Platinum Jubilee milestone, she chatted with Angela Wood who as a 19-year-old spent days cooking versions of the dish first known as Poulet Reine Elizabeth, chicken Queen Elizabeth, for its creators.

The two women spoke at a reception held in the ballroom of Sandringham House where members of the local community gathered to celebrate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne with a cake.

The Queen – who will be the first British monarch to celebrate a historic 70 years on the throne – was seen leaving the event, carrying a wooden walking stick, a blue patterned silk scarf and her trademark black handbag.

She was dressed in a light blue dress and a caped dark green coat.

The event was the largest in-person public engagement the Queen had attended since last October’s Windsor Castle evening reception for delegates who had attended the Government’s Global Investment Summit earlier that day.

A few days later concerns for the Queen’s health were raised after she pulled out of a trip to Northern Ireland and spent a night in hospital, she was ordered to rest by doctors who later advised her to carry out light duties.

Her guests included members of her local Women’s Institute (WI), the Sandringham branch she supports as president, and Sandringham Estate pensioners.

Before the pandemic the Queen would visit her WI colleagues at West Newton village hall every year as part of her winter stay on her Sandringham estate in Norfolk.

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee will be celebrated across the country during an extended June Bank Holiday in honour of a monarch who has left an indelible mark on the life of the nation.

But February 6, the date of the Queen’s accession to the throne, is a poignant period for the Queen, as it is the day her father King George VI died in 1952.
