The RHS Chelsea Flower Show has kicked off with a bang, with Royals and Dames in attendance to see the most influential garden show of the year.

This year’s flower show includes a tribute to their patron, Her Majesty The Queen, to commemorate her Platinum Jubilee with sculptured portraits created by floral arrangements.

The Queen looked regal as she was driven around the gardens in a golf buggy, wearing a pink coat and white gloves, her outfit tied together by a fabulous string of pearls around her neck.

The 96-year-old was shown around the 80 exhibits by the president of The Royal Horticultural Society, Keith Weed.

The Queen was joined by her son Prince Edward and his wife the Countess of Wessex, Sophie.

The Countess matched her mother-in-law, donning a pastel pink pantsuit and camel brown shoes with a matching purse, her hair fashioned in a stylish, low bun. The Earl sported a black suit and a navy polka-dotted tie.

Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi were looking stunningly well-matched as they joined the other Royals in attendance.

The Princess looked glamorous in her white dress covered in pale blue flower decals and puff sleeves, her husband in a coordinated matching blue tie and navy suit.

Other Royals in attendance were the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent, Princess Alexandra and Princess Michael of Kent.

Along with the Royal family, another notable face in attendance at the Chelsea Flower Show was Dame Judi Dench.

Looking stylishly effortless in an all-white ensemble underneath a denim blazer, Dench took part in a live demonstration where an oak timber round was carved with important dates from her life and Hollywood career.

Dame Joanna Lumley attended the show at The Body Shop garden, posing alongside the Chelsea Pensioners, garden designer Jennifer Hirsch and a young climate activist to represent generational joining on the issue of climate change.

The British comedian looked ‘absolutely fabulous’ in her radiant blue blazer and matching slacks, coupled with a gathered pink satin blouse peeking out beneath her blazer.
