The Queen today joined thousands of women from across the UK to help ring in 100 years of the Women's Institute.
Around 5,000 members of the organisation attended this year's annual meeting at the Royal Albert Hall, including Her Majesty - who has been an official member herself for some 72 years.
Not everything went to plan, however - with a particularly thick fruitcake proving troublesome for the royal party.
Princess Anne eventually had to swoop in to help.
ITV News correspondent Nina Nannar reports:
It has been a century since the WI was founded in the Anglesey village of Llanfairpwllgwyngyll on the principles of 'jam and Jerusalem' in a bid to get more women involved in the war effort, and it has become a formidable force in political activism and charitable fundraising ever since.
Joined by the Princess Royal, Anne, and the Countess of Wessex, Sophie, the Queen spoke to the throng in praise of the work the WI has done over the years - and the role it continues to play now.
