How designer Matt Keightley created the garden

The prince said the garden was "everything that I could have wished for".

He added that parts of the garden "are exactly like Africa" and that he "can't wait" to show members of his family.

Designer Matt Keightley, who created a southern-African theme for the charity, said: "It is such a privilege being part of the show.

" I'm hoping the Queen will like it - that would be the icing on the cake," Matt added.

Around 165,000 people are expected to visit the show over five days to enjoy the many gardens on display at the show which began in 1804.
