Barbara Windsor hosted the perfect British tea party in preparation for the Diamond Jubilee weekend.
She enjoyed sandwiches, scones and cupcakes with 60 scouts in the grounds of Buckingham Palace to encourage other people in the UK to have lunch with their neighbours, friends and family on June 3rd.
Barbara arrived with a large trifle for the youngsters from the Lewisham North Scout Groups and she also shared her tips for successful street party celebrations.
She said: "All we ask is for people to have lunch with their neighbours on June 3rd, that's not too much to ask is it?
The street parties were a big success when we did them at the royal wedding and they weren't just in London, they really captured the spirit of the whole nation. We feel very honoured that the Queen has chosen the Big Lunch to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee."
Barbara was asked to be London's official street party ambassador by London Mayor Boris Johnson two years ago after they appeared in a scene together in EastEnders.
