Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall are expected to go on their traditional Royal walkabout at tomorrow’s Sandringham Flower Show.

They are due to arrive on the showground at around 11am – travelling in an open horse-drawn carriage if the weather is suitable – and will head off about two hours later.

In that time they will walk through the flower and produce marquees, chat to exhibitors and stroll across the parkland through lines of well-wishers.

Their tour usually includes visits to the stands of the local Women’s Institute, the estate schools and the Royal Warrant Holders Association.

This is the 134th flower show to be held at the Queen’s West Norfolk home. It supports local charities and since 1977 has raised more than £500,000 for worthy causes.

As well as classes for flowers, flower arrangements, fruit, vegetables, preserves and bakery, there is also a section for local gardening clubs.

Special display gardens will be judged by TV gardening presenters Chris Beardshaw and Alan Johnson and there is a people’s choice section voted for by the public.

There will be dozens of trade stands and a main arena with a programme that includes camel racing, displays by the Essex Dog Team and a motorcycle stunt team, music by Essex Police Band and an aerobatics show over the park by the Aerostars display team.

The show starts at 10am. Admission is £10 per person, with under 16s admitted for free.
