Ah hem..laughing at the queen (or king) is an age old tradition among colonials..you wouldn't understand.. I mean..who would have expected the old bird to go along withe the james bond olympic stunt..Lizzie has a sense of humour as dry and subtle as her subjects. She'd be laughing too..but...
jelly ..meat or fruit.. true it is a clear substance made jelly like from either pectin or natural gelatin. maybe americans are not familiar with Jam.
PS you dont "mash" the fruit in jam..but a scone with Jelly is an abbomination
Excuse me your majesty, you forgot Jam. Jam (Jelly)shall be served on scones(Biscuits), together with clotted cream ..whenever afternoon tea -ish occasions arise.
Well I thought the OP was most amusing :) Imagine.
