    Queen Elizabeth (Queen Mother) at Chelsea Flower Show.

Various shots of the Queen walking around the gardens.

Several more shots of the Queen walking about with others, looking at vegetables, lilies and other exhibits in tents. C/U of masses of blooms. Queen and others look at flowers in a greenhouse. M/S panning down from shrub to plaque which says 'Exhibit from Windsor Great Park'.
