Regarding the Queen - is this a headpiece or a hairnet? Nice to see Princess Beatrice attending the Chelsea Flower show, I like the shots of her and the more I see of her, I really think she's a sweet girl. I love the lady in red of course and Prince Michael seems to have been in good mood, too. What did Albert of Monaco there, btw?

Thanks for the pictures, Iceflower!

I love Beatrice's dress! What a beautiful colour. Sophie also looks beautiful, the design on the dress is lovely. The Queen's head piece is...interesting, yet I love it!

I believe there is a sample on the Monaco gardens....hence Albert's participation.

The Monaca gardens were lovely.

It does make me laugh that Prince's Andrew and Edward have inherited their father's style of walk - holding their hands behind their back. It's amusing and even more adorable that Lady Louise does it too!

I went to the Preview day of Chelsea Flower Show and the Charity 'Do' in the evening [in fact I have just returned].

We were not allowed to stay during the Royal Visit, but I went down to the Bull Ring Gate to watch the Royal Cars arrive. Although she was the other side of the gate, we got a good view of the HM and many of the other royals. I also got a good view of the Royal Family departing. Although for some reason, I did not spot Princess Michael leaving. I think that she might have stayed on for the champagne and canapes that appear at the Charity Preview, although I did not bump into her during that.

The Queen's, er, head attire appeared to be a fine hairnet with those black bows dotted on it.... a mistake if I may say so.

After the Royal Visit had been concluded we were re-admitted to the Showground for the 'Charity' part of the day. [And my, was it cold!!]

Prince Albert was at the show for some time before the Royal visit, as he was helping to promote the Monaco garden and Monagasque tourism and the Principality generally. I picked up several 'handouts' and brochures.

A bit of a silly observation [which I try not to make here] but I thought that he was looking a bit old and tired. I hope he is not doing too much.

Thanks for the observations. It is always nice to hear first-hand accounts. How odd though that you couldn't stay during the royal visit. Maybe security reasons? As for the Queen's headgear..I didn't like it either.

The hairnet

The hairnet with bows is reappearing - it has been worn on several previous visits to Chelsea if you check out the photo websites. ...and it is still a mistake, I agree!!

The Queen's "hat" is an old one (and a great favourite of mine). She wore it at Chelsea Flower Show in 1996 (as I wrote in the file name years ago, but I can't remember the source, so I can't be sure ):

Net position and bows arrangement are a bit different.

Prince Andrew Pictures - Chelsea Flower Show - London, England - Zimbio

Picture gallery of Prince Andrew and Princess Beatrice at the Chelsea Flower Show (I beat iceflower to it! )

These pictures are just so cute. I like seeing Andrew and Beatrice together; you can tell that they have a good relationship.

You are so right Moonmaiden. The girls do seem to adore their parents, and enjoy spending time with them. Andrew and Sarah must be doing something right.
