Sneak preview of RHS Chelsea Flower Show for Prince Harry

Prince Harry became one of the first visitors to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, dropping in on Friday to meet the team who built his Sentebale Garden.

The garden, sponsored by B&Q raises money and awareness for Sentebale, a charity he founded with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, which helps child victims of Lesotho’s HIV/AIDS epidemic and other vulnerable children.

The Prince was shown around the garden on Friday morning. He also plans to attend today, where he will show the Sentebale garden to his grandparents, The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh.

The design of the garden has been inspired by Lesotho, a country completely bordered by South Africa, particularly the repetitive circular motif found in the landscape, buildings, hats and blankets of the country where Prince Harry spent part of his gap year in 2004.

Chelsea Flower Show opens on Tuesday and runs until 25 May.
