Browsing through pictures of Prince Charles visit to Kew Gardens today brought with it a strange kind of déjà vu

Browsing through pictures of Prince Charles' visit to Kew Gardens today brought with it a strange kind of déjà vu.

I’m almost certain I don’t spend my nights dreaming of His Royal Highness packing away his latest batch of popstar fromage and architectural plans to don gardening gloves and take up secateurs to prune till dawn; I’m almost certain. But there it was, this unshakeable vision in the back of my mind that I’d seen all this before.

Ah, but of course, here’s his mother, the Queen, at Kew last year getting her gloved hands dirty – well not quite – for the garden’s 250th birthday.

The Royal family: doing their bit for the nation’s green credentials.
