Royals Descend on Chelsea Flower Show

Harry showed members of his family a garden created to support his Lesotho charity, Sentebale

The Royal family turned out in force yesterday for the opening of the Chelsea Flower Show as the event celebrated its centenary year.

Prince Harry showed the Queen and prince Philip around his charity Sentebale's Forget-me-not garden designed by Jinny Blom, which includes native Lesotho flowers and a contemporary pavilion based on a traditional Basotho roundhouse.

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall also viewed the garden.

More than 165,000 visitors are expected to visit the show in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea this week after it opens to the public today.

For this year the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) lifted its customary ban on garden gnomes at the Chelsea Flower Show to celebrate its centenary year and raise funds for the next generation of gardeners.  The RHS invited celebrities to paint and decorate gnomes to feature at the world famous gardening event, before auctioning the gnomes online to raise funds for the RHS Campaign for School Gardening.
