Ahead of Accession Day, she hosted a reception for volunteer groups, pensioners and fellow members of the local Women’s Institute (WI) group. Guests included a former cookery student who helped create the original Coronation chicken recipe.

The Queen was described as being in “sparkling” form at the reception.

The Queen, wearing a pale blue dress with white brocade and carrying her black handbag, cut an iced Victoria Sponge featuring the Platinum Jubilee logo as its decoration at the reception.

When Lady Dannatt, Lord-Lieutenant of Norfolk, told her the cake had been turned upside down so press photographers could get a good shot, the Queen joked: “I don’t matter?”

“I think I might just put a knife in it,” the Queen said, adding it “went in beautifully”, but that she would leave it to someone else to finish cutting the cake, baked by a local resident.

However, the 95-year-old monarch was trolled by some of the social media users after a photograph of her cutting a cake surfaced online.

In the photograph, Her Majesty is seen wielding a knife and stabbing into the cake.

One Twitter user, Lucylee, commented: “Did she stab the cake?”

Another social media user, Itsjen, wrote on twitter: “Now who cuts a cake like that….?”

A third Twitter user commented she wielded the knife akin to “Lady Macbeth”.

One more user, Jelakins, tweeted: “A woman with arthritis? I’m assuming ‘cos of her age…”

Twitter user, Diannehawkins, wrote: “At least they gangsta a knife this time instead of a sword. Either way, she’s a cake-stabbing fool.”

However, many other users showed their support for her Majesty on this special day.

One user, birds_wendy, wrote: “Good to see the Queen looking so well.”

Another user, Stacey, wrote: “On the eve of history. What a remarkable lady.”

Replying to one comment questioning the Queen’s technique, royal expert Omid Scobie quipped that the cake cutting method used by Her Majesty helps to “bring out the flavour”.

The reception saw the Queen meet Sandringham Estate pensioners and their families as well as representatives from local charities Little Discoverers and West Norfolk Befriending.

On Sunday, she will have reigned for 70 years.

It also marks the day her father George VI died in 1952.
