Queen Leads Royal Party Attending the Chelsea Flower Show -

Prince Charles, a keen horticulturist, and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall looked delighted to be celebrating the world's most famous flower show. Charles, 64, eagerly chatted to many of the gardeners presenting their designs as the royal couple walked amid a sea of beautiful blooms.

Charles was also happy to share his considerable knowledge with his son, Prince Harry and was seen pointing out flowers and plants of interest as the royal party toured the exhibition.

It was a particularly poignant visit for Harry, who proudly showed his grandmother a garden very close to his heart. His own charity, Sentebale, is taking part in the world-renowned horticulture event for the very first time.

Vera Bradley Designs, Inc.The Forget-Me-Not garden was created by renowned landscape designer Jinny Blom to reflect the Lesotho landscape and its people — and Harry was "passionately" involved in the design process, even having preliminary drawings sent over to him for approval while he was serving in Afghanistan.

A keen lover of the outdoors, the Queen considers the Chelsea Flower Show one of her favourite annual events, and she certainly looked relaxed and at ease as she enjoyed a sneak preview ahead of Tuesday's grand opening. Click link for full post from Hello Magazine.
