THE Queen walked through the trenches yesterday as she got a first look at this year's RHS Chelsea Flower Show.She was guided through a modern-day floral mock-up of a trench created by gardeners for Birmingham City Council.

The scene is one of more than 500 exhibits that more than 165,000 visitors will see when the annual show opens for the 101st time today.

After walking through the pristine trench, which was packed with sandbags, tiny metal rats and fronted by a model of a rearing horse, a packed flowerbed, a periscope and whistles, she noted it was "a rather nice trench" in contrast to the grim sites that First World War soldiers would have faced.
