The Queen is to join Prince Charles and Prince William among other members of the Royal Family in Cornwall on Friday at a G7 leaders' reception at the Eden Project.

It is incredibly rare to find the three most senior royals attending the same event together, particularly outside London, but then it is not every day that the UK hosts the G7 Summit.

Prince Charles will be joined by his wife the Duchess of Cornwall and Prince William by the Duchess of Cambridge.

They are reported to be dining on a menu that will include turbot brought into Newlyn, served with Cornish new potatoes.

Dessert will be English strawberry pavlova followed by a cheese course that will feature Cornish Gouda, Cornish yarg, Helford blue.

The meal will end with petit fours that will include, of course, clotted cream fudge.

It will be cooked by Emily Scott, chef at the Watergate Bay hotel near Newquay.

Sea shanty group Du Hag Owr will provide the musical accompaniment to the event.

To drink they will be offered Cornish sparkling wine, German Riesling, Australian Shiraz, Cornish beer and a hedgerow fizz cocktail.

Roya Nikkhah, royal editor for the Sunday Times has described it as a 'major royal diplomatic charm offensive'.

She has reported that during the visit to Cornwall Prince Charles and Prince William will host G7 leaders and global CEOs to discuss how the private sector can tackle climate change.

Meanwhile the Queen the Duchess of Cornwall and Duchess of Cambridge will attend an event celebrating The Big Lunch, a project that has been run for many years by the Eden Project to bring communities together.

The Duchess of Cambridge and US First Lady Jill Biden will also be joining together for an engagement focusing on early childhood.
