Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall took part in a busy walkabout at today’s Sandringham Flower Show which saw them sample a new brew, smell some fragrant new royal roses and do a spot of shopping.

They bought plants for the garden, cakes, strawberries and spent £10 on a crocheted elephant toy for one lucky grandchild.

And this was between admiring exhibits, chatting to endless well-wishers, posing for pictures and enjoying a good laugh at models of themselves and other Royals created by local schoolchildren.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall spent just short of two hours at the show, arriving and leaving in an open carriage drawn by two white horses.

Within minutes of them turning up, damp, grey skies turned into brilliant sunshine and sealed the success of the Royal estate’s 135th anniversary show.

Show chairman, David Reeve, said it was another huge success and an “informal and beautiful occasion with the welcome from the crowd as warm as the sunshine”.
