Queen Elizabeth showed some regal flair on a recent outing with Kate Middleton and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
On Friday evening, the three high-ranking royal women attended a special reception with volunteers who are organizing the platinum anniversary next year, marking the queen's 70th anniversary.
During the celebrations, the 95-year-old queen was also asked to cut a celebratory cake - which she did with a large ceremonial sword.
As she was preparing to cut into the candy, the monarch playfully waved her hand off that she should use something else for the task at hand.

"I know it exists," she said in response to a reminder that a knife was available to her. "That's a little more unusual." Their jokes made Kate, 39, Camilla and the rest of the crowd smile and laugh.
"That looks very good," she added after cutting a slice with the help of Camilla.

The Queen's sense of humor was also evident earlier in the day when she posed for a group photo with a handful of leaders in honor of the G7 summit.
"Should you look like you are having fun?" she joked as the group posed together, which made the leaders laugh.
“Yes,” replied British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. "We enjoyed ourselves despite the appearances."

Earlier on Friday, Kate was hanging out with First Lady Dr. Jill Biden when the couple attended elementary school in Hayle, Cornwall.
They joined the children in a classroom, fed their rabbits, talked to teachers, and met educators and child development experts for a round table discussion.
When Kate and Dr. The first time Biden walked in, the children may have been too excited as the silence greeted them. "You were scared to death," joked the First Lady when Kate said it was "the quietest class I've ever been in".
