Royal family and celebrities attend Windsor's rose show

The Prince and Princess Michael of Kent were the guests of honour at this year's Royal Windsor Rose and Horticultural Society Show on Saturday.

The pair toured the event at St George's School in Datchet Road for more than two hours and paused to have ice cream and buy flowers. Other famous guests included actors Anna Friel and Rhys Ifans and rugby star Zinzan Brooke.

The show, now in its 107th year, has been given the Royal seal of approval by five monarchs and around 40 stallholders turned out to show off their horticultural skills. Displays ranged from traditional arrangements to tributes to the Queen in a diamond jubilee year.

There was music and entertainment throughout the day to entertain visitors.

Society chairman Andrew Try: "It went fantastically well despite the rain. We had a really good turnout of people and it was great to see entire families coming along."

For the full results see Friday's Windsor Express.
