Queen Elizabeth just paid a sweet tribute to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on the couple’s first anniversary without having to say a word.

Hello! Magazine reported that Elizabeth wore the same bright green coat and floral dress she donned for Markle and Harry’s royal wedding when she attended the Chelsea Flower Garden show on Monday, May 20. The couple celebrated their first anniversary on May 19 and the monarch paid tribute in her own silent, special way.

The latest photo of the Queen that was shared to social media before her appearance at the Chelsea Flower Garden Show has the monarch looking lovingly at her eighth great-grandchild Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor along with her husband Prince Phillip, Prince Harry, Markle, and Markle’s mother Doria Ragland.

Ragland has been staying with the couple at their new home at Frogmore Cottage since mid-April.

Harper’s Bazaar reported that the photo was taken by Chris Allerton, who shot portraits of the Sussexes’ when they presented their son to the media along with the party photos for their wedding.

Royal reporter Omid Scobie noted on Twitter that the royal twosome has decided not to bestow a “courtesy” title on their son, looking to “give him as normal a life as possible.”

Queen Elizabeth is a patron of the Royal Horticultural Society and attends the floral show every year. This year’s outing was special because her granddaughter-in-law Kate Middleton participated in a woodland-themed “Back to Nature” garden.

People Magazine reported that the garden was created with help from the Royal Horticultural Society and designers Andrée Davies and Adam White to highlight the benefits of playing outdoors.

Prince Harry and Kate Middleton shared photos of their children, Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1, enjoying the outdoor area to their official Instagram.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share some new photographs of their family as they visited the RHS Back to Nature Garden at the #ChelseaFlowerShow on Sunday afternoon. The photographs were taken by @mattporteous. The #RHSChelsea Back to Nature Garden, designed by The Duchess and award-winning landscape architects Andrée Davies and Adam White of Davies White Landscape Architects, is a woodland setting for families and communities to come together and connect with nature. Her Royal Highness is a strong advocate for the proven benefits the outdoors has on physical and mental health, and the positive impact that nature and the environment can have on childhood development in particular. Over the past months, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have helped The Duchess gather moss, leaves and twigs to help decorate @The_RHS Back to Nature Garden. Hazel sticks collected by the family were also used to make the garden’s den. The Duchess told Monty Don in an interview for the BBC: “I really feel that nature and being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental wellbeing, particularly for young children. I really hope that this woodland that we have created really inspires families, kids and communities to get outside, enjoy nature and the outdoors, and spend quality time together.”

The outing was the kid’s first chance to see what their mother has been busy working on since early 2019. “She’s been very hands-on,” said the garden’s co-creator Davies White on Twitter.
