About 8,000 guests attended the event, where they tucked into some 20,000 sandwiches, 20,000 slices of cake and 27,000 cups of tea under bright May sunshine.

The queen, 89, was dressed in a light yellow hat and summer coat as she and her husband Prince Philip mingled with Prince Charles, his wife Camilla, Britain’s Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, and Sophie, his wife.

Born on May 2, Princess Charlotte is the second child of Prince William and Kate after their son, Prince George, who was born in 2013.
