Queen Elizabeth II opened her summer entertaining season this week with an intimate tea for 8,000 people at Buckingham Palace.
The crowd was composed of people nominated for attendance as a reward for good works in their respective communities. However, large as this tea party was, it doesn't compare to the world's largest, about which I wrote some time ago.
The story and photos of the queen's affair, such as the scene above, from the Associated Press are available here.
