The RHS Chelsea Flower Show officially starts tomorrow, but we have royal appearances today. Moving our Open Post up one day.
The royal family has a long history with the Flower Show, and the Queen visited during her very first year as monarch. This year, the Queen, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, Princess Alexandra, the Duke of Kent, Princess Michael of Kent, and the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester all attended.

Her Majesty has arrived and is traveling about in her own version of the Popemobile. Pink pops, as she well knows. You can’t miss her!
The golf buggy by Danish firm Daria has a top speed of 43mph, a 50 mile range on its lithium battery, plus brown leather seats, a 10.1inch screen with weather updates and ‘weather enclosures’ to be driven all year round. Costs around £62k. pic.twitter.com/XMxmXXZV8u

I think that she may be wearing the Flower Basket brooch, but those of you with better eyes will have to confirm or deny it. (H/T to Baguette Barb – it’s actually the Sapphire and Ruby Spray brooch.)
Princess Beatrice and Edo are there, too. Beatrice’s dress is by Reformation, and I love the pattern. The sleeve smocking – well, the jury is out on that. I do wish for a lighter shoe here, but maybe these are comfortable!
The Countess of Wessex has been leaning heavily into the Royal Lady pantsuit lately. This is by Gabriela Hearst and she is wearing those two-toned Penelope Chilvers block heels that had us all taking notice last week.
Another video with The Duchess of Gloucester, Princess Alexandra, and what looked to be a quick glimpse of The Duke of Kent, enjoying the afternoon.
You know the process. Post comments and photos as you find them. We’ll circle around with anything official as it pops up.
