The King and Queen of England often have to attend various official engagements where they run into all sorts of situations.
That is precisely what recently happened to King Charles and Queen Camilla when they visited their Sandringham estate in Norfolk for the 140th edition of the Sandringham Flower Show.
At the venue, the king experienced an amusing and somewhat awkward moment when it was his turn to inspect the cakes that were made in his honor.

Charles and Camilla couldn’t contain their laughter when they came across a rhubarb and apple pie that purported to be a portrait of the monarch.
Camilla is said to have quipped, “That looks very much like my husband.”
Jackie Marshall, the pastry chef responsible for the masterpiece, later told the BBC that “The ears weren’t meant to be that big, they just rose in the oven,” she said.
Marshall has entered competitions at the show for several years, mainly in the vegetable and flower categories, although this year was not his best participation.
The pastry chef added that making the king and queen laugh had been the real prize of the day for her.
A video shared by a royal fan account shows the exact moment when Camilla sees the terrible cake and then proceeds to look for Charles, who also watches it while laughing and expressing a comment or two.
