As he has in years past, Ringo Starr attended the photo op for the annual Chelsea Flower Show Monday in the UK. Also in attendance were members of the British royal family, including Queen Elizabeth, Prince Phillip, Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
“Another great day at the Chelsea flower show promoting water aid. I’m doing the best I can Are you Peace Luv R**,” Ringo Starr posted on his @ringostarrmusic Twitter account Monday.
Ringo Starr posed for photos in the B&Q Sentebale ‘Forget-Me-Not’ Garden at the show. The garden was designed by designer Jinny Blom. The garden was built to raise awareness of the work of Prince Harry’s charity Sentebale, which works to bring education, care and medical aid to the children in Lesotho in Africa, which is battling extreme poverty and AIDS. Prince Harry was in attendance at today’s photo session.
Ringo also posted two pictures Monday on Twitter. One showed the view of being in front of the press taking his picture.
“The other reason why we go to Chelsea flower show Congratulations to all the exhibits Peace and love R***,” he posted with a picture of flowers at the show.
The show begins Tuesday and runs through May 25.
Ringo Starr and wife Barbara Bach opened a garden for WaterAid at the flower show in 2012. “WaterAid transforms lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world’s poorest communities,” according to its mission statement.
