Queen pays a touching floral tribute to Peter Seabrook, the late garden editor of The Sun

THE Queen stopped in her royal buggy at a memorial to Peter Seabrook, The Sun’s popular garden editor.

Peter, who died in January aged 86, had been a regular at the Chelsea Flower Show for 70 years and would often present Her Majesty with a bouquet – which she always placed on her desk at Windsor or Buckingham Palace.

Yesterday Molli Christman, 25, our garden editor trainee, continued the tradition and presented the Queen with a bouquet of sweet peas named in Peter’s honor.

The queen – a fan of the late BBC Gardener’s World presenter – sniffed the flowers.

Molli said: “It was a real honor to present the bouquet to the Queen now that Peter is no longer with us.”

Her mother, Val Christman, 61, of Ware, Herts, worked with Peter for 25 years on his Chelsea shows and created a memorial garden in his honor.

She said: “It was wonderful to see the Queen back with us and she looked so happy.

“She said the memorial to Peter was lovely.

“I know Peter will be proud that his tradition of giving Her Majesty a bouquet continues, especially in the centenary year.”
