The CFS is one of those events when quite a few of the family turn out on the first day. The Queen and Philip and a range of others visit. The CC will list all those who do attend - even those with no photographic evidence to support their visit - on the day after the attendance.

At the moment the Future Engagements list The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, The Duchess of Cambridge, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Princess Alexandra as attendees on the 22nd May but no one else. If Kate is listed alone that would suggest strongly that neither William nor Harry are going to attend as normally if one is listed in the FE as attending something then the others don't attend or the FE lists all of them up front. The FE, of course, rarely lists any Wales or York branch events so when it does it is pretty accurate.

The only listed engagement for William this week is the FA Cup Final this coming Saturday (27th May) while Harry has nothing listed. Interestingly for this cricket follower it is Charles who is listed (one of the rare times he has an entry in the FE) as launching the start of the ICC Champions Trophy tournament. As it is starting at The Oval that isn't a huge surprise. Charles is a cricket fan and owns The Oval cricket ground (at the moment - in time it will belong to William and then George as it is part of the Duchy of Cornwall estate and the home team - Surrey - have the Princes of Wales feathers as their emblem).

Is Jack with Eugenie at the Flower Show? I think it is him walking with her in the photo with Beatrice and Andrew.
If I remember correctly he attended with her last year.

I'm home with a cold, so I decided to take a two day break from my self imposed ban here.

Queen discovers renewed love of gardening at 91
Quote:
The Queen has discovered a renewed interest in gardening, it has emerged, proving that even at the age of 91, it is never too late to take up a new hobby.

The monarch, who toured the Chelsea Flower Show on Monday alongside the Duke of Edinburgh, was inspired by a garden restoration project at Windsor and has developed an impressive knowledge about plants.

She has taken such an interest in the regeneration of the gardens at Frogmore House that for her 90th birthday last year, her friends gave her plants for the new beds.

And as a result of her new passion, the Queen was said to have been unusually animated while visiting the world famous flower show.

Robert Hillier, chairman of Hillier Nurseries, one of the country’s leading horticultural suppliers, has met the Queen on several occasions but revealed that he was taken aback by her sudden interest and in depth knowledge of the subject.

He said: “She has never shown her knowledge before. We have met many times but suddenly she is so interested in plants and planting.

“She is really thrilled with the way Frogmore is developing. She has now got more ambitious and wants to do a lot more.

“She obviously enjoys going to Chelsea, but in the past she has not been so animated. She has got really into gardening. It’s never too late!”

Lady Elizabeth Anson, who has been overseeing the project, said: “Her knowledge of plants of phenomenal – and she knows the Latin names.”

Frogmore, a Georgian house set in 35 acres inside the Home Park of Windsor Castle, is bursting with tulip trees, redwoods and wisteria. The grounds were designed as an escape for Queen Charlotte, the green-fingered wife of George III, and are rarely open to the public.

Such is the Queen’s love of its lawns, that it has been claimed the five-strong gardening team are not allowed to remove a single tree or shrub without her permission.

As the monarch toured the flower show, it emerged that her knowledge even extended to earwigs, recalling how gardeners used to trap earwigs with upturned flower pots on top of tomato canes.

“‘I do remember that,” she said. “And the children had to go out and empty them.”
Quote:
She also revealed that, despite having been an ardent listener of Sir Terry Wogan's BBC Radio 2 breakfast show, she now tunes in to his successor, Chris Evans.

The Queen met the DJ as she toured his Taste Garden and told him he was on her radio on Monday morning.

He said: "She said 'I was listening to you this morning', because it was the Chelsea flower show."

"She loved the garden, she was here for a while.”
