Orchid Project memories of Prince Philip

Todays sad news has reminded me of our meeting with Prince Philip in 2004, at the RHS anniversary show. He was great with students Chris and Callum, reflecting his commitment to young people, and declared the orchid project “Marvellous”. He will be greatly missed.

    Such sad news, a true humanist, but how amazing to have actually met him.
    Did he buy a Writhlington orchid?
    Everyone looks much younger, including the orchids. Haven’t they grown!
