My mother was there a few years ago-- she goes to London a lot, and almost always visits Kew Gardens when she does. The Queen was planting there that day, and my mom took the following photos. In my novel, the Queen is wearing the same clothes as in these pictures. These photos all form the basis of my scene.
|Impeccably dressed and ready to flick!|
|There's Prince Phillip here, too, in the red tie. "The air smells quite well out here," he might be saying.|
|The entourage was quite small, I thought. Shouldn't there be secret service planted in the trees or something?|
|My characters fall into a heap of giggles behind this bush.|
