Prince Charles - Prince Charles Meets Hedge

Prince Charles found himself face to face with a man dressed in a hedge yesterday (16.03.12).

The British royal visited the Ideal Home Show in Earl's Court, West London, where he was confronted by the Living Topiary Statue - a man who was seemingly wrapped in privet - as part of the show's launch. The prince grinned broadly as he shook his hand.

During the visit, Charles was also presented with a bouquet of roses by TV gardener David Domoney as a possible gift for Queen Elizabeth for Mothering Sunday, which is tomorrow (18.03.12) in the UK.

David said: ''It's Mother's Day on Sunday - I am in the trade. Have a few of these.''

However, Charles responded: ''Don't worry - I have that nailed.''

He then asked where the flowers had been bought, and after being told they were from a local florists, the prince said: ''I hope they are not from China.''

Afterward, David told the Daily Mail newspaper: ''It is always fun meeting the Prince. He has a great sense of humour.

''The prince is a great guy and it is wonderful that he is championing timeless land-based skills.''

Charles appeared in a great mood as he attended the show, and posed for pictures alongside TV presenter Myleene Klass. He then received a special tour of the Prince's Arts and Crafts House.

The house, designed by the Prince's Foundation for Building Community, uses recycled and second-hand materials in an effort to be more environmentally friendly.

The Prince also sampled a Welsh drink with 'Masterchef' presenter Gregg Wallace during a tour of food and drink stalls, and admitted he sometimes watches the popular cooking show.

Charles was then presented with a portrait of his wife, Camilla, by artist Emmanuel Y Obuobi.
