The Queen leads the Windsors' colourful history at the Chelsea Flower Show

20 MAY 2013

This year the Chelsea Flower Show celebrates its centennial year. Its status as "the greatest flower show on earth" is maintained in no small part by its long-standing association with the Queen.

The relationship dates back as far as May 1952, and since then the monarch has visited the annual show on all but 12 occasions. It's a passion she has passed on; this year, interest is at an all-time high thanks to the involvement of her grandson, Prince Harry.

In celebration of the horticultural show's 100th birthday, HELLO! Online takes a look back at its colourful history with the royal family.
