STORY: Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and other members of the Royal family, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, made a visit to the Chelsea Flower show on Monday (May 23).
Many of the exhibits on display mark the Queen’s 90th birthday, including a 21ft (6.4m) floral arch of at least 10,000 blooms, and an exhibition of Royal photographs at Chelsea dating back to 1949.
The grounds of the Royal Hospital have been transformed by a display of knitted crocheted poppies, drawing comparisons to the ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ installation at the Tower of London in 2014, which commemorated the British and Commonwealth dead at the centenary of the outbreak of World War I.
The Chelsea Flower show runs until May 28.
