Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry at Chelsea Flower Show
Britain’s Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry visited Chelsea Flower Show together on Tuesday (24.05.16).
The 33-year-old royal, – who is the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip – his brother, 31, and his wife Catherine, 34, strolled around the gardens at the prestigous event organised by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), which is taking place from May 24 – 28.
Catherine – who had never attended the show before – turned to Harry and asked: “Do you have a favourite (flower)? You don’t have to be biased.”
To which Harry joked and pointed: “That one over there.”
The Chelsea Flower Show promises “cutting-edge design and visionary gardens” at the Royal Hospital grounds in Chelsea, London.
Prince William and Catherine’s daughter Princess Charlotte – who celebrated her first birthday on May 15 – has been honoured this year with a pink and green chrysanthemum named after her.
And according to the Mail Online, her father – who also has son Prince George, two – joked it would be a far easier name to spell than its original.
He asked Alison and John Peace from the Chrysanthemum Society: “Can you spell Chrysanthemum? I can’t even say it”.
Elsewhere, this year the show includes a photographic exhibition and a floral arch to celebrate the 90th birthday of the Queen, who is a patron of the event.
One of the themes is health and healing, with one garden designed by famed garden designer Ann-Marie Powell called the RHS Garden for Health, Happiness and Horticulture and another, the Modern Apothecary Garden designed by RHS Ambassador Jekka McVicar
Approximately 157,000 people will visit the ticketed event over the four days.
Meanwhile, Jerry Hall, Naomie Harris, Rosamund Pike, Demi Moore and Donna Air all attended the gamorous flower show today.
