The Royal estate is self-sufficient in honey thanks to Queen Elizabeth’s bees.
THE QUEEN goes above and above to ensure that she is environmentally conscious.
While many people enjoy honey with their breakfast, few people would want to keep bee hives in their yards.
Four Italian honey bee hives are located on an island in the palace gardens of Buckingham Palace.
Since 2009, two of the hives have been there.
The bees at Buckingham Palace produce enough honey to make Her Majesty’s estate self-sufficient.
Honey madeleines, chocolate truffle filling, and honey and cream sponges are among the desserts presented to visitors during the Queen’s legendary summer garden celebrations.
Unfortunately, the garden parties have been canceled this year.
The Queen isn’t the only Royal with an interest in honey production.
The Duchess of Cornwall was named the first President of Bees for Development on World Bee Day in May 2020.
Clarence House posted on Instagram, “HRH is a keen beekeeper and has nine hives.”
“The honey from these hives is gathered and sold for charity by Fortnum & Mason every year.
Camilla shared an inspiring video emphasizing the importance of beekeeping and the work of Bees for Development.
“Bees are fundamental to the natural world and an integral part of our delicate environment, as we all know,” she stated.
“It’s an age-old practice to keep bees and produce honey.
“However, this amazing organization has discovered a method to use the busy bee to help alleviate poverty and promote biodiversity.
“It works to train and educate individuals on how to keep bees using simple approaches that are typically free or low-cost.”
