British Queen celebrates

During a visit to the Chelsea Flower Show, King Charles III was endearingly dubbed "King of the Compost" by a group of school pupils. The children, who met the

monarch during his tour the evening before the show opened to the public, presented him with a badge bearing the new title, inspired by His Majesty’s passion for horticulture.

King Charles appeared delighted as he received the badge from the children, who cheerfully explained that they chose the title because of his well-known love for gardening.

Queen Camilla also received a new title from the pupils. Dubbed "Queen of the Bees," the honor was particularly fitting given that their visit coincided with World Bee Day. The Queen was visiting the Bees for Development display at the show, highlighting the importance of bees in the environment.

The Royal Tour at Chelsea Flower Show The royal couple were greeted by gardening expert Alan Titchmarsh and toured several exhibits, including the popular "No Adults Allowed" garden, which features a slide and was designed by children. They also visited the Bridgerton garden, where Queen Camilla admitted to having watched the first season of the Netflix series "Bridgerton," set in the court of Queen Charlotte.

The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, along with Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, also attended the royal viewing of the show. The RHS Chelsea Flower Show runs from May 21st to May 25th, 2024. Photo by White House, Wikimedia commons.
