A right Royal knees up at Toby Carvery

A right Royal knees up at Toby Carvery

The nation's reigning monarch started her 90th birthday celebrations early with a trip to her local Toby Carvery this week to indulge in an iconic great British roast dinner.

But all is not as it seems as the home-video-style footage, shot from Prince William's perspective, was created by BAFTA award-winning celebrity artist, Alison Jackson, to show how the royal family might be celebrating this landmark occasion.

The candid clip features the royal family enjoying a birthday celebration. Kate is seen setting the table with the Toby Carvery team, while Prince Charles asks the chef for a 'king'-size portion, much to his mother's dismay who remarks "not likely!"

After roast dinners all round, the Queen is presented with a celebration cake complete with a '90' candle and a card from Toby Carvery. Finally, Her Royal Highness opens presents including a very British corgi cushion.

The video has been created to mark the Queen's 90th birthday and the launch of Toby Carvery's celebration package.

Rachel Westwood, marketing manager at Toby Carvery, said: "As we mark 90 years of a true British icon, we felt it was only right as Home of the Roast, to celebrate with another much-loved classic.

"The relaxed, friendly atmosphere in our restaurant is a great place to get together with friends and family. We have just launched a brand new party package which includes birthday cake and balloons."

To celebrate the Queen's birthday, Toby Carvery restaurants nationwide are offering anyone who shares her special day a free roast dinner on theirs. Those born on 21st April can enjoy a free birthday roast by simply taking a take a form of identification to their local Toby Carvery on Thursday.

With over 160 locations across the UK and over 30 years' experience of laying on a family-sized feast, you can be sure that Toby Carvery is home of the roast.
