The Queen toured the Chelsea Flower Show by buggy on Monday, enjoying the creations of some of the world’s top garden designers from the comfort of the back seat.
With her cane at her side, the mobility-impaired queen sat back and was driven around in an electric vehicle belonging to the royal household by a peaked-cap chauffeur from the monarch’s staff.
Keith Weed, President of the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), which runs the event, sat next to the monarch and gave her running commentary on the many gardens she stopped to view and introduced them to gardeners and sponsors.
This is how you can tune in.
