The marzipan-covered Battenberg cake was originally thought to have been made for the 1884 wedding of Queen Victoria’s granddaughter. Princess Victoria and Louis of Battenberg were the maternal grandparents of the Duke of Edinburgh.

A food industry expert told MailOnline yesterday: “There is a certain irony that the Battenberg is going to enjoy a resurgence in popularity during the Jubilee year.

“Although it is very much a British creation, let’s not forget that the family changed their name to Windsor during the First World War because of increasing anti-German feeling in Britain.

“But for it to enjoy a resurgence in popularity in 2022 of all years would be a nice tribute to the Duke.”

In an annual trends survey conducted by Lakeland, it is predicted there will be a “return to traditional British bakes as customers fly the Jubilee flag in style.”

Lakeland admitted sales of Battenberg baking tins have increased recently by 30 percent.

The company’s head of buying, Philippa Simons, said: “We are predicting Brits will embrace the street party and roll out a summer of celebrations for the Platinum Jubilee.”

The Queen is also releasing her official book for her Platinum Jubilee, The Queen: 70 Glorious Years, which includes over 77 images chosen to represent the monarch’s reign.

Her Majesty will mark the 70th anniversary of her reign on February 6, 2022, this will be kept private and the main celebrations for the Platinum Jubilee will take place between June 2 and June 5, 2022.

With a whopping £15million budget, ministers and culture chiefs have revealed a spectacular line-up for the “Platinum Pageant” as part of a four-day public holiday.

The “Platinum Pageant” will take place on the streets of London as the Queen celebrates 70 years on the throne.

Organisers say the event will showcase the memorable story of the Queen’s reign since 1952.

The pageant will consist of three acts and take place on Sunday, June 5 with the first seeing troops and veterans take part in a march along The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.
