Prince Harry welcomes 'granny, pa and grandpa’ to his Sentebale garden at The Chelsea Flower Show
Prince Harry welcomes ‘granny, pa and grandpa’ to his Sentebale garden at The Chelsea Flower Show.
The Prince beamed with pride as he showed his ‘granny’ around the Forget Me Not garden designed for his charity Sentebale.
Also showing their support for Harry’s project, which was designed, in part, as a tribute to his late mother Diana, were no fewer than 12 royals including his father the Prince Of Wales, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Duchess of Cornwall and Princess Beatrice.
The Prince of Wales, one of the first to arrive, warmly greeted his son and quipped: ‘This is the great garden designer!’ then added: ‘This is the great garden, is it? After all this effort – I wondered if it didn’t exist!’
As Harry saw his grandfather, he said: ‘You’re supposed to be looking at strimmers and tractors, grandpa. I didn’t know you were coming. Fantastic!’
Adding: ‘Hopefully you like it. You’ve been coming here for so many years, your opinion is highly regarded. Are we going to see any of this at Sandringham or Balmoral?’
The Queen looked on proudly as her 28-year-old grandson gave her the royal tour of the garden in aid of Sentebale, a charity which helps vulnerable children in the African kingdom of Lesotho, one of the world’s poorest countries.
A happy Prince Harry also told the Duchess of Cornwall about his tour of the United States last week, during which he played a charity polo match in Connecticut for the charity. ‘It was one of those things. I just turned up for lunch, gave a speech, jumped on a horse and then jumped on a plane,’ he said.
