Prince Harry's Diana garden tribute
Jan 14, 2013, 12:02 GMT
Britain's Prince Harry has paid tribute to his late mother in a garden he designed for this year's Chelsea Flower Show.
The 28-year-old royal helped create the 'forget-me-not' garden, which includes Princess Diana favourite 'hearts and crowns' motif on an elaborate stone-worked terrace and a plant called 'William', the same name as his brother, Prince William.
Harry worked on the exhibit with designer Jinny Blom in aid of his African charity Sentabele, which was set up in the name of Diana to help HIV positive children in Lesotho.
The garden will also feature a traditional conical wooden house similar to those found in the mountain kingdom of Lesotho.
Jinny told the Sunday Times newspaper: 'It's all about circles. They have circular houses, they have circular hats; the houses and the hats both look like each other and they in turn look like the hills.'
Harry is currently serving on the frontline in Afghanistan and was emailing his feedback to Jinny.
She said: 'He really likes it. He is very keen. He created this charity himself and he got it off the ground, so I really want to do him proud.'
The Chelsea Flower Show takes place in London in May and is one of the social highlights of the British summer.
