Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall,  were traditional guests at the annual flower show at Sandringham on Wednesday.

Thousands of visitors kept their cool as they toured the many attractions on display during the scorching heat.

This was the 137th show which included a host of competition entries in flowers and produce, garden and horticultural displays, trade stands and an array of arena events.

The packed event included the presentation of trophies to proud show winners.

The displays included a garden specially created by garden design company ABC to mark the 50th anniversary this year of King’s Lynn Samaritans.

The design won the award for the people’s choice.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall admired the displays, toured the show ground and spent time shaking hands and chatting to visitors.

Money raised from the event has netted more than £750,000 for local charities and community causes so far.

Show patron is The Queen and all members of the committee are volunteers who spend a year planning the event.
