When England’s Queen Elizabeth celebrated her 90th birthday last April, it didn’t go unnoticed among Key Biscayne residents who have roots across the pond.
And when they were back on the Island Paradise earlier this year, they decided to host a late birthday celebration for the long-serving monarch.
Organizer Pastor Amanda James, who has been coming to Key Biscayne for over 45 years from her home in London, the fun event was held at the Key Biscayne Community Church, where her family regularly visits when on the Key.
“Key Biscayne Community Church and Senior Pastor Dennis Eastling welcomed some very important guests recently,” she said. “The occasion was a ‘late’ celebration of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday year.
“Senior members of the church enjoyed a traditional English cream tea, including freshly baked scones with jam and Devon cream, and Twinings English breakfast tea.
The tea, held in the church garden, included members of the ‘Royal Family’ – the Queen, Prince Charles and his sons William and Harry – with a little bit of help from members of the congregation.”
