Fortnum & Mason is launching a competition to find a dish celebrating the Queen's 70 years on the throne, marking the beginning of official jubilee festivities.

Recipes will be judged by an expert panel including Dame Mary Berry.

The Queen usually spends the anniversary of her accession privately at Sandringham.

The bulk of the jubilee duties are expected to be given to the rest of the royal family, including the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.

From 12 to 15 May, more than 500 horses and 1,000 performers are expected to take part in a show in the grounds of Windsor Castle, which will take the audience through history from Elizabeth I to the present day.More ceremonies are to take place later in the year, starting on Thursday 2 June, the first day of the special four-day bank holiday, when the Queen's birthday parade, Trooping the Colour, will take place in Horse Guards Parade.
