It’s one of the biggest and brightest events on the social calendar and this year, the Chelsea Flower Show was blossoming with royals.
Leading the way was Prince William, Duchess Catherine and Prince Harry.
The trio were joined the rest of the royal family including The Queen, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Andrew Duke of York, Sophie the Countess of Wessex, and Princess Anne for a lovely day out.
Wills and Kate have never found time to attend before due to diary clashes but they had an extra reason to attend this year: seeing the pink and green chrysanthemum named in honour of their daughter, Princess Charlotte.

The royals all took their time looking at the beautiful arrangements, which this year celebrated the Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday.
The Queen couldn’t stop smiling as she marvelled at an archway covered in flowers and arranged in the shape of her silhouette to mark the special occasion.
The monarch’s dry humour even came out to play, as she made a comment on the poisonous nature of two bunches of lilies of the valley she’d been given by people as gifts this week. She joked perhaps they’d “wanted her dead!"
Meanwhile the Queen and Duchess of Cambridge both looked resplendent in green tones, both outfits designed by British designers.
Kate sported a green coat by Chelsea-based designer Catherine Walker, while the Queen looked bright and sprightly in a turquoise number by her favourite dressmaker Angela Kelly.
A host of celebrities also attended the opening press day event, including Demi Moore and Rosamund Pike.
Meanwhile Rupert Murdoch and his new wife Jerry Hall were also in attendance with the newlyweds looking relaxed and refreshed following their honeymoon in the French countryside in March.
