It is generally believed that the Afternoon Tea trend was started in the 1840s by Anna Maria Russell, the 7th Duchess of Bedford and a close friend of Queen Victoria. At that time, dinner was served later and later within affluent circles and the Duchess found it difficult to go from lunchtime till supper without something to eat so she would order cakes, tea and sandwiches to be served around 4pm. She enjoyed this experience so much she would invite friends to enjoy afternoon tea with her.
This trend soon caught on and was copied by the upper and middle class so much so that having afternoon tea became a British way of life.
