Today, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Prince William and Kate Middleton, to the rest of us) welcomed their third baby, a healthy boy, who is now fifth in line to the throne.

With the royal family on our mind, we’re thinking of these adorable Queen cookies, honoring the long-reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, and served as a nightcap at The London EDITION hotel.

As Virtuoso’s Carol Coleman reports, “As a huge fan of The Crown, and a huge fan of the nightcap, I was thrilled to receive Queen cookies and ‘milk’ punch, which is happily not made from milk.”

The note with the cookies says: “Everyone who comes to London should have Tea with the Queen.” We agree.

The historic milk punch is made with three types of rum, Somerset cider, spices, and clarified milk.
