Nothing says “70 years on the throne” quite like “Salad Queen” and “LamQueenie”, among countless other jubilee specials that have emerged to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s long reign – the longest of any British monarch.

With the Queen’s big platinum jubilee weekend drawing ever closer, brands have released a plethora of royal-themed food and drink products to mark Her Majesty’s historic milestone.

Most of the themed items are limited edition and available only up to or during the special bank holiday weekend, which takes place from Thursday 2 June to Sunday 5 June.

We’ve rounded up all the jubilee-themed food and drink you can feast on as you raise a glass to the Queen:

Heinz’s jubilee offering was the first out of the gate, as it announced a royal makeover of two of its most popular condiments in April.

HP Sauce and Salad Cream, which are high on the list of Britain’s favourite sauces, are now available in limited-edition bottles labelled “HM Sauce” and “Heinz Salad Queen” to honour the monarch’s 70th year on the throne.

The noble sauces have been on sale in supermarkets since April, so there is still time to grab them for your Big Jubilee Lunch.
