At the British Royal Court, Afternoon Tea is a quintessential daily ritual.

This delectable celebration of tea originated in the  Victorian era, when young Queen Victoria reigned in the United Kingdom. 

Tea drinking in England dates back to 1662, when it was introduced at court by Portuguese Infanta Catherine of Braganza, wife of Charles II.

Garden Parties have been held at Buckingham Palace since the 1860s. From 1948 to 1958 there were two garden parties at Buckingham Palace in July and one at the Palace of Holyrood House.
