Duchess of Edinburgh blossoms at Windsor Flower Show


The Duchess of Edinburgh graced the 117th Windsor Flower Show this weekend, officially opening the event with her presence.

The Duchess spent the morning at Windsor Great Park, where she was accompanied by Alan Titchmarsh, the Honorary President of the Royal Windsor Rose and Horticultural Society, and Mary Berry. Together, they toured the various floral and gardening exhibits, as well as local baking and craft displays.

A highlight of the visit was a knitted version of the Duchess and her husband, showcased at a Royal Variety performance. Sophie engaged with several gardeners, bakers, and attendees, discussing the impressive displays.

Dressed fittingly for the occasion, the Duchess wore a green floral gown paired with wedge espadrilles.

The Royal Windsor Rose and Horticultural Society, established in 1892 by Queen Victoria, is one of the world's oldest continuously operating horticultural societies. Six royals, including the late Queen Elizabeth II, have served as Patron. In May 2024, it was announced that King Charles would also take on this role.
