Congratulations to the Arctic Jubilee Expedition, who received this wonderful letter from HM Queen Elizabeth II in response to their loyal greeting sent from Mount Barbeau on the Queen Elizabeth Islands!
The explorers enjoyed Tregothnan cream teas at the world's most remote Jubilee Tea Party at the summit of the highest peak in the Arctic Cordillera, just 560 miles from the North Pole.
Oli Milroy, one of the team, said: "The cream tea was amazing. It was such a lift to have a taste of home whilst out on the ice. Tregothnan's Kea plum jam also became a great condiment for our porridge! Delicious."
