THE Queen stopped in her royal buggy at a memorial to The Sun’s substantially-beloved gardening editor Peter Seabrook.
Peter, who died in January aged 86, had been a normal at the Chelsea Flower Present for 70 many years and normally gave Her Majesty a posy of bouquets — which she usually placed on her desk at Windsor or Buckingham Palace.
Yesterday, our gardening editor’s apprentice, Molli Christman, 25, carried on the tradition and offered the Queen with a posy of sweet peas named in Peter’s honour.
The Queen — a admirer of the late BBC Gardener’s Environment presenter – took a sniff of the blooms.
Molli stated: “It was a actual honour to be ready to current the posy to the Queen now Peter is no for a longer period with us.”
Her mum, Val Christman, 61, of Ware, Herts, labored with Peter for 25 a long time on his Chelsea exhibitions and created a memorial back garden in his honour.
She explained: “It was amazing to see the Queen back with us and she looked so pleased.
“She explained the memorial to Peter was delightful.
“I know Peter will be wanting on happy that his custom of giving a posy to Her Majesty is continuing, particularly in Jubilee calendar year.”
