Princess Tessy of Luxembourg visited Peacocks Montessori Nursery in Stuston to meet the children who have been growing plants that will feature at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in May.

Nursery director Hannah Laurie said: “The children were so excited to have a princess visit. Of course, they all wanted to know what she would be wearing and whether she would wear a crown. Interestingly, many of them asked whether she had children of her own. They didn’t want her to leave at the end.”

The children had been preparing for her visit since November and planned what to grow in the garden, which has been created by Harleston designer Jody Lidgard.

The garden features plants such as bearded irises, aquilegia and herbs. At the start of Princess Tessy’s visit, the children presented her with a bouquet they had made.

Princess Tessy said: “I was delighted to visit today. Both of my children were at Montessori schools so I have seen first-hand the incredible impact the Montessori approach has on childhood development.

“I enjoyed spending time with the children and getting involved in activities with them – particularly in the garden.”
