What happens when a seven-year-old girl gets an invitation to have tea at Buckingham Palace with the Queen? Nothing ordinary, if the girl is Freya. We learn that the Queen likes to boogie, eats beans on toast (with the inevitable result) but is also compassionate and understanding. Told with Giles Andreae's trademark warmth and humour, but with an added poignancy when the Queen meets Christopher, Freya's brother, this is a perfect celebration of the Queen for her Diamond Jubilee in June 2012.
