Chelsea Flower Show 2005-2019
Here is a thread for the Royal Chelsea Flower Show starting on Monday, so we can post news and photos of the show. (Royals and Gardens.):)
This is the first show I can remember that HM the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will not be attending as they are in Canada.

Rockers and royals alike turned to flower power this week as the annual Chelsea Flower Show got underway in London. Sophie Wessex was pictured sharing a joke with 88-year-old Army veteran Wally Offord at one of the displays, while former Beatle Ringo Starr came along to open another of the other attractions.

The Countess joined Wally for a pint of Spitfire Bitter at the Chelsea Pensioners' Garden. Built to look like an idyllic oasis from the England of 1945, the design aimed to recreate "a soldier's dream of Blighty".

And Sophie wasn't the only royal enjoying the fun. Her husband Prince Edward and brother in law Prince Andrew were there too. Princess Anne was meanwhile doing the honours at the launch of a new rose by horticultural company Harkness, who rewarded her for her efforts with a full basket of the pale pink "Elisabeth Casson" bloom.

The annual event also attracted some big names from the world of showbiz. Rod Stewart arrived hand in hand with his bride-to-be Penny Lancaster, while veteran actor Michael Caine was likewise spotted checking out the verdant creations. Green-fingered musician Ringo Starr was on hand to open the 4head Garden, which is one of this year's biggest attractions.

"It's absolutely lovely very peaceful and pleasant," said the performer. "I'm a keen gardener myself and I really love being in the garden. I've got gardens at my homes in England, Monaco, LA and Colorado. Every time I come to the Chelsea Flower Show I pick up ideas that I take back home and use."

Rosy day out for the Queen and her loved ones

It's not often the Queen gets to enjoy a day out with all four of her children, so it was small surprise to see her beaming from ear to ear on Monday afternoon. Even the best efforts of the British weather could do little to put a dampener on proceedings as the monarch met up with her nearest and dearest at the Chelsea Flower Show.
