1 tablespoon of milk

sea ​​salt, to taste

1 tablespoon butter or you can use extra virgin olive oil

Method

Beat the eggs and milk in a bowl until well combined. Add salt to taste.

“Last week I was able to join thousands of people who visited the Green Park Floral Tribute Garden and Buckingham Palace, to pay my respects to someone who was such an inspiration,” he said.

“It was a very emotional day, especially looking through the heartfelt tributes and cards and seeing thousands of Paddington Bears lined up at the gates of Buckingham Palace and the surrounding gardens.

“Growing up in the UK was the beginning of my admiration for the Queen for many reasons, including her ability to be a strong and steadfast influence in times of turmoil, as well as her dedication and diligence in serving others.”

The royals will gather on Monday September 19 for the Queen’s funeral.
