From King George V and Queen Mary paying a visit in the 1930s, to a young Princess Elizabeth attending with her parents and later attending herself as monarch over her 70-year reign, it's been a long tradition for royals to attend the garden show at the Royal Chelsea Hospital in London.
Several senior members of the Royal Family attended with the late Queen over the years, and Kate even curated her own garden in 2019.
As for this year, the Princess of Wales took part in the first ever children's picnic, marking the first time in the Chelsea Flower Show's 110-year history that the Royal Horticultural Society's (RHS) Campaign for School Gardening were invited to bring pupils along to the event.
The 41-year-old mother-of-three wore a two-toned pink shirt dress by Me+Em, paired with her go-to summer shoes, a pair of Castañer espadrille wedges.
Later, King Charles III and Queen Camilla returned to the annual garden show on its opening day to inspect Charles's first official sculpture since becoming king.
Sculptor Keziah Burt created the bronze bust for the Royal Tribute Garden, this year called The Garden of Royal Reflection.
It was designed by Dave Green, an RHS gold medal winner, by combining the gardening tastes of both the king and his mother, the late Queen Elizabeth, in celebration of the coronation of Their Majesties King Charles and Queen Camilla, and also in memory of the late Queen Elizabeth, herself a big fan of the Chelsea Flower Show.
Bristol resident, Burt, coincidentally started working on the impressive bust on the day the late Queen died in September 2022. The artist was inspired to start a sculpture of the then Prince Charles following the success of her sculpture of the late Queen for the National Army Museum last year.
The bronze bust and stand, which weighs 15kg and comes in at 23ins tall and 8ins wide, is open to the public to view at the Chelsea Flower Show and will be available for purchase for an estimated £20,000 after the show.
The king and queen also visited other garden highlights including the Samaritans’ Listening Garden and London Square Community Garden.
