The Queen made her traditional visit to the Chelsea Flower Show on Monday as it returned to its regular May slot for the first time since 2019.

The 96-year-old monarch, who has mobility problems, used a buggy to tour the Royal Horticultural Society’s showpiece event which this year hosts gardens focusing on wildlife, wellbeing and floral displays to mark the Platinum Jubilee.

The Queen – who is not thought to have used a buggy at an official engagement for nearly a decade – got a first look at the floral and gardening extravaganza before it opens to members of the public.
