Whilst visiting the flower show last week, I had quick visit to the Privy Garden of the Palace and spotted a couple in period dress.
The tourist coach driver is also appropriately clad but her mobile phone rather spoiled the historical nature of the photographic moment!

A small Privy garden was laid out for King Henry VIII between 1530 and 1538. In 1689 William III and Mary began rebuilding the Royal apartments in the more fashionable Baroque style and extended the Privy garden - raised terraces were built around the garden and a gazon coupe (intricate pattern of grass and gravel) was established . A wrought iron screen designed by Jean Tijou was placed at the South end and clipped yews were planted on the terraces.William III's garden gradually disappeared as elaborate gardens fell out of favour. In the 1990s extensive research was carried out and the garden was restored to the 1702 design.
