Royal message for gardening radio show’s birthday

By Francesca Gosling

The Queen has admitted that she is "not any sort of expert on gardening" as she shared a special message to mark the 70th anniversary of BBC Radio 4 show Gardeners' Question Time.

The special edition programme yesterday featured an item on royal residence Frogmore House, in Windsor.

In a pre-recorded speech, she told listeners: "I very much hope you have enjoyed visiting Frogmore House and Garden, which holds a special place in my family's affection.

"I would echo the sentiments of Queen Victoria who, 150 years ago, rode to this dear lovely garden, where all is peace and quiet and you only hear the hum of the bees, the singing of the birds."
