Just days before the London Olympic 2012, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth went to Downing Street for having a lunch with the current and former Prime Ministers of U.K.
The present Prime Minister David Cameron invited his predecessors to join the lunch arranged as a celebration for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The former PMs also understood the situation and accepted the offer leaving behind political rancor. While Gordon Brown, Tony Blair, and John Major confirmed their presence, Lady Thatcher, the only woman to decorate such a high office during the Queen’s reign, would be the only surviving prime minister missing the event.
Such an occasion is rare in Britain’s history. In fact, Cameron is only the sixth one among 12 prime ministers who invited the Queen at No. 10. However, Cameron has done this job for two times, the first one took place in the last year in honor of Prince Phillip’s 90th birthday.
