• Prince Harry's involvement in Chelsea Flower Show sees ticket sales blossom

    Prince Harry's involvement in this year's Chelsea Flower Show has seen ticket sales soar. "Once people found out who was involved, it was bound to attract extra attention," said Stephen Bennett, the Royal Horticultural Society’s director of shows. "We usually sell out in late April or early May, but tickets have gone faster than usual." The young royal's participation has made the event a sell-out and ticket touts are now charging up to 20 times the face value for a ticket to the horticultural extravaganza.    A total of 161,000 tickets to the centenary of the London show have been sold
