Like Harry did for his niece's christening. Oops he didn't. There was plenty of family at the flower show .So William stayed home with a energetic George, newborn Charlotte and recovering Kate.

How do we know that Harry was asked to Charlotte's christening? And the Cambridges had no children at all in 2013 at the time of the flower show when Sentebale was first nominated. Yes, Kate was pregnant, (though I went out and about in the last weeks of my pregnancy, pregnant women aren't in purdah) but again William was a no-show. The rest of the family showed up to take a look at the Sentable Garden so it was obviously important to the rest of the family that Sentebale be honoured, just not to William.

George also had a daffodil named after him that was shown at the 2014 Chelsea Flower Show, but his parents didn't go to see that either.

William and Harry are constantly supporting each others' causes/charities, but there are going to be times when they can't, or don't attend an event. Just because William didn't see the Sentebale Garden, doesn't mean it wasn't important to him, or that he doesn't support Harry.

I'm looking forward to seeing all the royals at this year's show.

Exactly. The Harry v William story line is old and tired.

Kate Middleton and Prince William visit Chelsea Flower Show for the first time | Daily Mail Online

The Queen and Kate in good spirits, as usual:

Does anyone know who the first woman they say hi to in the beginning? William and Kate seem rather familiar with her, so that's why I'm wondering :)

A lovely clip! Anybody knows who the nice blonde lady in that light brown frock is? She even knew HMs lady in waiting.

The lady in a white ensemble looked absolutely ridiculous.

What I learned about the Duke and #DuchessOfCambridge at the #RHSChelseaFlowerShow tonight - they call each other "Darling" a LOT. #Kate

Beatrice and Eugenie are there with their boyfriends.

I love the stunning floral tribute to the queen.

Everyone seems to be in great high spirits. Glad to see so much of the family made it out this year to the show.

Palace officials are saying the reason why William and Catherine haven't been to the flower show before is mainly due to diary issues. It's good that they were able to attend this year. Now if only we can get them to attend Royal Ascot!

Love that both the Queen and Kate are wearing shades of green (isn't that a mint color the Queen is wearing?). Happy accident or purposeful?

Peeve about the curtsey: Either do it right or skip it. I know it's probably fine by protocol (since no one has to do it at all) but I don't like it when they 'cheat' the curtsey.


So great to see W&K there...and Harry too! Prince Phillip is looking so frail at times. Even the Queen is starting to look at bit unsteady at times. Worries me.
