On Monday, May 22, 2018, the monarch spent a pleasant day amidst the flowers. She was accompanied by Prince Richard and Birgitte, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, Princess Beatrice and Princess Alexandra.

Prime-Minister Theresa May was also spotted on the tour, along with the familiar faces of Holly Willoughby, Phillip Schofield and Alan Titchmarsh. A photo of Queen Elizabeth surrounded by flowers was shared on the Royal Family's Twitter page.

Dressed in pink, the Queen was greeted upon her arrival at the Royal Hospital Chelsea in London by Sir Nicholas Bacon, the President of the Royal Horticultural Society.

The monarch seemed to be in her element as she was seen smiling throughout the tour, which took her through several gardens, including the RHS Feel Good Garden.

The flower show was established in 1913, and it has since then become one of the world's largest showcases for horticultural excellence. It is one of London's main attraction for visitors from all over the world.

During the tour, Queen Elizabeth was able to visit the Yorkshire Garden, which depicted the Yorkshire Dales, the Wuhan Water Garden, inspired on the Hubei Province, in China, and the Morgan Stanley Garden.

Being a patron of the Royal Horticultural Society, the Queen seemed to be very pleased with how well the RHS Chelsea Flower Show was doing, a nice surprise following the successful Royal Wedding that took place during the weekend.

Prince and Harry and Meghan Markle didn't accompany the monarch to the Gardens, but they made their first appearance as husband and wife at Prince Charles' 70th birthday at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.
