British Flowers Week: Duchess of Cornwall visits Garden Museum

British Flowers Week is an annual celebration of British cut flowers and foliage, organised by New Covent Garden Flower Market.

This year six installations from floral designers were at the Garden Museum, showcasing the seasonal qualities of homegrown produce and the skill of floral design.

Garden Museum trustee Alan Titchmarsh was among the dignitaries on hand to welcome the royal visitor.

The Duchess also met a group of volunteers from Floral Angels, a charity of which she is patron.

The charity recycles donated flowers from weddings, events, florists and retailers and arranges them for use in hospices, women's refuges and care homes throughout London.

During her visit Her Royal Highness met a group from Archbishop Sumner Primary School who were making fruit salads in the museum's new learning studio kitchen.
