Donna,

It sounds to me like it would be for Queen Liz the First. The coconut would be extremely exotic and only affordable by the rich, as would the dates. I'm not sure it's for our current Queen tho'. ...who knows, maybe Helen Mirren would like it!

Still it's suitable that Marie La Reine du Soleil gives it to us. Thank you, your majesty. I shall have a go at it soonest.
