British Royals shared their garden photos on the occasion of the Chelsea Flower Show

The Chelsea Flower Show has been cancelled for the first time since the Second World War due to the coronavirus pandemic. Queen Elizabeth sent a support message to the Chelsea Flower Show, which is organized by the Royal Horticultural Society, a gardening charity, of which the Queen has been patron since 1952.

On the occasion of the Chelsea Flower Show, Queen Elizabeth and other members of British royal family shared their garden photos on their social media accounts on the day the Chelsea Flower Show was going to be held, in order to support the world famous event.

Queen Elizabeth has chosen lily-of-the-valley, pictured here in the Buckingham Palace gardens. Lily of the valley featured in Her Majesty’s coronation bouquet and has held special associations since.

Prince Charles selected delphiniums, which he described as magnificent, gloriously apparelled, saying that the flower "holds pride of place in my botanical affections."

The Duchess of Cornwall opted for Alchemilla Mollis, also known as Lady’s Mantle. The Duchess said that it was "one of the best ever foliage plants for the garden and the vase” and ”a must for every gardener" to explain her selection.

Princess Anne chose hellebores. The princess’ comment about her choice was "Not only do they flower early but they keep flowering for two months, and they are often beautifully marked with endless variations."

  1. Such a great idea! I love it! What are your favourites? Given what is blooming in our yard now, my favourite is a beautiful deep red (almost burgundy) group of tulips. Our eldest daughter brought the bulbs from the Netherlands years ago as a gift and they have been wonderfully blooming ever year since! CH
