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.

They are in their 90's, we're all going to start seeing even more of that as time goes on.

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.
Charles and Camilla and Edward and Sophie call each other darling. I think it's nice!

Nice to see both York sisters there. I loved what both were wearing.

Yes and I hope we can accept it without bringing attention to it all the time.

The Chelsea Flower Show often looks so beautiful, I want to get tickets but it's difficult. I hope that I can get to go one day. I loved the displays in honour of HM, as well as the poppy installation. I thought it was nice that the poppies were made from felt and fabric.

It was great to see lots of members of the RF there. I thought Beatrice and Eugenie looked nice, and, as I've already mentioned in her fashion thread, I loved what Catherine wore. It was nice to see the Cambridges and Prince Harry for the first time also.
It appeared that the RF all had a nice time looking at the displays and installations that were at the show!

What a great day for the royals at the Chelsea Flower Show!

The poppies installation is superb! I'm so glad Sophie spent time there to showcase that beautiful garden combination. Lest we forget, the poppies remind us.
Clearly Kate, not Wills is a gardener! She needs to drag him out into the greens more often, JMO.
As a gardener, I would have hoped for more photos of Royals with the Flowers/greens. Likewise, more of the Sentabale gardens (how did that get lost in the DM photo-palooza?)

Nice picture of the Princess Royal, thinking.... (She was there with Tim, BTW) http://media.gettyimages.com/photos/...re-id533781420
Birgitte was there today, too http://media.gettyimages.com/photos/...re-id533771236

The roses and the Princess Charlotte Chrysanthemum at the Chelsea Flower Show are gorgeous. Now Prince George and Princess Charlotte of Cambridge each a flower named after them.

And William and Kate have an orchid named after them 'Vanda William Catherine' ... Quite the family bouquet

Harry has visited @ least 2 prior years as his charity Sentebal had a garden, wonder if they had one this year.

There are pix of Catherine and William closely examining the poppies as well. Catherine in one shot seemed to be looking at how they were made - perhaps we'll see her wearing one of the fabric poppies one day.
Nice to see Jack attend with Eugenie. One article said both boyfriends attended with the Yorks - but I didn't see Dave.
Prince Andrew needs to get a jacket next size up, or unbutton the one he had on, that button was hanging on for dear life.
I'm a gardner, but not a huge chrysanthemum fan, I hope we'll one day see a Princess Charlotte rose.
Lovely to see so many of the Royal family in attendance.

I didn't see Dave either. Was he really there? Or was it just Eugenie's boyfriend there?

The Queen is again the picture story in some of the front pages today:

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CjK0mGhXEAAV0W6.jpg

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CjK7AN9XAAA4y0n.jpg

And as people can read In the Daily Fail article that I posted yesterday evening, Her Majesty was in cracking form during her time at the Chelsea Flower Show:
Quote:
The Queen showed she has not lost her sense of humour aged 90, as she joked that she had been the victim of an assassination attempt.

Herb gardener Jekka McVicar told her how lily of the valley was previously used as a poison.

'It has the same properties as digitalis, [foxglove],' Miss McVicar, designer of the St John’s Hospice garden, told her.

The Queen laughed: ‘I’ve been given two bunches this week. Perhaps they want me dead!' '

Miss McVicar also gave the Queen a bunch of herbs to smell, including lemon verbena, which seemed to go down better.

'She said it was lovely,' she later said.

One of the highlights of her tour came when the Queen was photographed behind a cut-out of her own head, filled with flowers.

The striking image, filled with hydrangeas, sweet peas, alliums, freesias, roses and other flowers, was designed by florist Ming Veevers Carter for the New Covent Garden Flower Market.

'Did you take it [the image] from the stamp or the coin?' the Queen asked her. The stamp, Ms Veevers Carter replied.

'It's very nice,' she added.

Was Dave there ? i didn't see him either. I seem to recall reading that he is not liked by some members of the RF, but can't remember where I read this. Maybe he just kept out of the way of photographers , wise man !!

Dave is liked by the family. He's seen with them every now and then. Not sure if he was there yesterday though.
