Britain's Queen Elizabeth pays a visit to the gardens of the 99th Chelsea Flower show. She donned a floral hat for the occasion. The Queen and her husband Prince Philip were among the first to see this year's elaborate displays that include a special section honoring Her Majesty's diamond jubilee. A number of growers unveiled new varieties of flowers to mark the monarch's anniversary with roses bearing names such as the pale pink Royal Jubilee. The three-day show draws over 150,000 visitors to the London gardens each year and will open on May 23rd. That's less than two weeks ahead of the celebration of Queen Elizabeth's 60-year reign.
