British Royal Family Girlboss Queen Elizabeth II just celebrated her birthday by cutting into a cake with a bigass sword, and that’s all I’m thinking about today, hey.
Yesterday, the 95-year-old attended an event called The Big Lunch with the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, and Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla Parker-Bowles. To commemorate the event, organisers brought out a giant-ass cake with the words “The Big Lunch” written in frosting, and that’s when we see it: The Queen and her Big Ass Sword.
The Queen was handed the scabbard by the Lord-Lieutenant of Cornwall, Edward Bolitho. Then, with all her strength, she begins to slice into the cake, to which Camilla eagerly and royally adds: “that’s slicing through.”
That's not a knife… ⚔️ The Queen has shown off her sword-wielding skills by using one to cut a cake.

“I don’t think this is going to work,” said Lizzie.
“[It will] with two hands,” added Camilla.
“There is a knife there as well,” says someone off camera before the Royal Queen of Girlbosses claps back, “I know there is. It’s something that’s more unusual.”
Eventually, the Queen gives up on using the ceremonial blade to cut into the celebratory cake and hands the blade to Camilla to finish the rest of it. She does go back for a second slice though but tragically uses a proper knife.
But, folks, for a sheer second, The Queen of England had a big-ass sword. Again I repeat: The Queen of England, Elizabeth II, owns and used a big-ass sword on her big-ass 95th birthday, and I think that’s extremely powerful girlboss energy, don’t you?
Earlier today, Meghan Markle’s father Thomas Markle made a scathing accusation that Oprah Winfrey was playing his daughter, after that viral interview starring all the royal tea. Anyway, can someone please hit up the Queen Of Swords and Pop Queen Carly Rae Jepsen and organise an epically emotional tune-bopping duel?
