Her Majesty is a pretty nice girl, and apparently she had somethings to say. You see the Queen has always been a Beatle fan. She has been one of The Boys’ biggest supporters since day one. The Queen was able to exchange words with Olivia Harrison, and pay respect to George Harrison.
Our Beatle loving gardeners in the UK are able to enjoy this unique homage to one of favorite people, George Harrison, who was himself an avid gardener.
Here’s what we’ve read.
The Queen met George Harrison’s widow Olivia as she explored the Chelsea Flower Show.
She stopped to admire a garden designed in memory of the former Beatle which tells a story of his life.
She spent several minutes chatting with Mrs Harrison and designer Yvonne Innes who created the garden – called From Life To Life, A Garden for George.
Mrs Harrison, who was meeting the Queen for the first time, said: “I think she thought the idea of a narrative garden was interesting. Each level for me is a huge story.
“It was nice of her to visit. I really feel honoured, truly honoured.”
Mrs Innes said she had explained that the garden was split into different levels depicting Harrison’s childhood, the Sixties era and his later years, as well as the afterlife.
The Queen carried a bouquet of pink and white Princess Elizabeth sweet peas and lily of the valley as she toured the garden.
A host of royals explored the site ahead of the official opening on Tuesday.
The Duke of Edinburgh went on a separate tour, while the Earl of Wessex was joined by the Countess of Wessex, who was making a rare public appearance since the birth of the couple’s son James in December.
The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall did not attend as they both had prior private engagements.
