With thousands of well-wishers wanting to catch a glimpse of the royal couple at this year's Sandringham Flower Show, one woman stood out from the crowds.

As an avid royal family fan, Mary Relph is well-known to Prince Charles and the Duchess as she has attended the Sandringham Flower Show for 70 years.

In 2015, the Duchess sent Mrs Relph a bouquet of flowers and a get well card after she underwent a major operation. The 83-year-old, from Shouldham near Downham Market, was ready to greet Camilla with a bouquet of roses.

'When I first came here there was just a fur and feather tent and a flower tent - there wasn't much,' Mrs Relph said.

'I asked Camilla if she had a nice birthday and if she got my birthday card. She said she had a lot of cards.
