Paul Hollywood's Touching Tribute To Queen Elizabeth
While many will remember Queen Elizabeth II for her service maintaining military vehicles during World War II or her stately ascension to the throne in 1952, others closer to her might remember her for her food habits. Among those in the culinary world who won't soon forget Her Highness is “Great British Bake Off” host Paul Hollywood.
Hollywood publicly shared his thoughts on the death of Her Majesty in a touching way on his Instagram account shortly after Buckingham Palace confirmed her death on Sept. 8, 2022. The celebrity chef posted a black-and-white portrait of the queen, writing in the caption, "Such sad news the death of Queen Elizabeth II, dedicating her life in service, an amazing lady RIP."
Hollywood wasn't just an anonymous subject to the late Queen Elizabeth, either — the "Great British Bake Off" judge had firsthand experience with her. Hollywood had prepared scones for Her Majesty on more than one occasion, and the queen, in return, expressed her appreciation for Hollywood's skills and the pastries, calling them the best scones she had ever tasted.
