The Royals began their visit to the show at the Broads Village, where they talked to representatives from the Broads Authority and set foot aboard a small boat, the Liana, on the lake.

Prince Charles then went to visit the Discovery Zone, where he was introduced to scores of excited schoolchildren, and carried on to the Royal Breeds Survival Trust tent.

He met the president of the Suffolk Horse Society, Jeff Hallett, who presented the Prince with a tie and scarf from the Society.

Meanwhile the Duchess visited the Military Village and met representatives from RAF Marham, which celebrates its centenary this year, before heading to the Norfolk and Norwich Horticultural Society Flower and Garden Show.
