Thousands of visitors flocked to Sandringham on Wednesday for the annual flower show.

Royal visitors Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall were greeted by an enthusiastic crowd at the annual event.

This was the 135th year of the show, one of the region’s prestigious horticultural events.

The event included an array of displays from businesses and horticultural specialists as well as entertainment, crafts and trade stands.

Royal estate residents entered the fruits of their labours in the classes for vegetables, fruit, flowers and floral art. In the run-up to the event, estate employees, tenants and pensioners entered their gardens in competitions and trophies were presented to the winners at the show.

Each year, profits are donated to local charities and since 1977, £500,000 has been handed out.
