A clip has emerged from one of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
At the event, the 95-year-old monarch cut into an iced Victoria sponge cake decorated with the Jubilee emblem. Watch the clip below:
The video shows the Queen walking over to the cake with Lady Dannatt, the Lord-Lieutenant of Norfolk.
Lady Dannatt tells Her Majesty that the cake has been placed upside down for the benefit of the press photographers present.
The monarch hilariously replied: "I don't matter?"
Adding: "I think I can probably read it upside down."
Keeping the attendees entertained the Queen then proceeded to cut the large cake.
She said: "I'll put the knife in, see if it works."
The Queen put the knife in, moving it slightly before leaving it in place, adding: "Somebody else can do the rest of it."
After the clip was shared to Instagram viewers were left in stitches.
One user shared the clip captioning it: "me doing the bare minimum at work."
Another wrote: "She’s cut so many cakes at this point. She’s just over it!"
"I just found this so cute??? The way she WIELDS that knife" added a third.
The event that featured the cake cutting took place in the ballroom of Sandringham House.
Among the attendees were were members of the Sandringham branch of the Women’s Institute, Sandringham Estate pensioners and representatives from two local charities West Norfolk Befriending and Little Discoverers.
The Queen herself looked wonderful in a cornflower blue Angela Kelly dress decorated with a white flower pattern.
She also carried her trademark black handbag and used a walking stick to move around the room as she welcomed guests.
Events commemorating the monarch's 70 years on the throne will continue throughout the year.
While her Accession Day falls on 6th February, national celebrations are being held on a special four-day bank holiday weekend in June.
She is the country's longest reigning monarch, and the longest currently-serving monarch in the world.
