Queen Elizabeth visited a Norfolk rose stand at Royal Horticultural Society's Chelsea Flower Show this week.
Other well known faces photographed admiring the work of Peter Beales Roses, of Attleborough, included Dame Joanna Lumley and Dermot O'Leary.
The Peter Beales Roses team won their 25th Chelsea gold medal on Tuesday, and introduced two new roses named Ely Cathedral and Fragrant Celebration.
Ian Limmer, Nursery Manager, said: 'In this, our 50th year, it was a great honour to have Her Majesty the Queen visit our exhibit. It was lovely to talk to her about the display and our roses.
'Her Majesty paid particular interest to the new introductions.'
