Thomas Wolsey, King Henry VIII’s right-hand man, first served strawberries & cream as a simple banquet dessert in 1509. It later became a dessert of choice when Wolsey hosted tennis matches at his palace. Eventually this tradition was passed down to Wimbledon. The Royal Box at Wimbledon has been used for the entertainment of friends and guests of Wimbledon since 1922. Guests are invited to the Clubhouse for lunch, tea and drinks at the end of the day.

The Platinum Jubilee of Elizabeth II is being celebrated in 2022 in the Commonwealth to mark the 70th anniversary of the accession of Queen Elizabeth II on 6 February 1952. This is the first time any British monarch has celebrated a platinum jubilee. In the United Kingdom, there will be a four-day bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2 June to Sunday 5 June. The British government has promised a "once-in-a-generation show" that will "mix the best of British ceremonial splendour and pageantry with cutting-edge artistic and technological displays".
