Chelsea Flower Show

The Chelsea Flower show is one of many things relocated online this year, with a message of encouragement from its patron. Buckingham Palace also shared a gallery of Her Majesty attending in years past and some of the hats are wonderful:


Jump over to this post to see all the hats (and hairnets!) Queen Elizabeth has worn to the Chelsea Flower Show since first attending in 1952

To kick off this year’s virtual Flower Show, which coincides with Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK, members of the Royal Family joined in the #MyChelseaGarden campaign, sharing their favourite plants and flowers. Since flowers are such a huge part of royal hats and we all need some encouragement, let’s take a peek, starting with the Queen’s favourites:

Princess Alexandra: 

Duke & Duchess of Gloucester

The Earl and Countess of Wessex

Princess Anne
Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall

I thought this was charming and I hope it brightens your day.

  1. So lovely! The first photo reminds me so much of the Vancouver artist by the (unfortunate?) name Agent X. I have a limited print by him in my living room, though I wasn’t ballsy enough to go for the one with the Queen’s profile. I adore all the floral choices, and props to Camilla for picking a good foliage/filler plant!
