Prince Harry's garden show
Nov 30, 2012, 12:02 GMT
Britain's Prince Harry is to exhibit a garden at Chelsea Flower Show.
The 28-year-old royal - who is famed for his partying ways - is following in the footsteps of his father Prince Charles by developing an interest in horticulture and will set up a stand at the annual show in London next May.
The exhibit will be for his charity Sentabele - set up in the name of his late mother Princess Diana to help HIV positive children in Lesotho, Africa - and Harry is being updated on the progress of the garden.
Jinny Blom, who is designing Sentabele garden, sponsored by B&Q, told the Daily Telegraph: 'He is very committed to the charity and taking a real interest in the garden.'
The 'forget-me-not' garden will use native flowers to Lesotho around a traditional roundhouse.
Prince Charles has also had his own garden at Chelsea Flower Show and Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, attends every year.
Sentabele was founded by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho in memory of their mother's. The charity provides health care and education to deprived children, particularly those with HIV.
