A hall that fits five buses – that’s a very long lunch

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - Femail -

THE lunchtime re­cep­tion will be hosted by the Queen in the 180ft-long St Ge­orge’s Hall at Wind­sor, used for glit­ter­ing state ban­quets. The hall is long enough to fit in five dou­bledecker buses, so there will be plenty of room for the 600 guests who will come there from the chapel. The cake, de­signed by Claire Ptak of East Lon­don bak­ery Vi­o­let Cakes, is a lemon and el­der­flower sponge cov­ered with but­ter­cream and fresh spring flow­ers. Kent’s Chapel Down win­ery is said to be pro­vid­ing the wine, with ca­ter­ing com­pany Ta­ble Talk be­lieved to be in charge of the food.
