There was no shortage of floral tributes at this year's Sandringham Flower Show, but what really caught the eye of Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall was a bridal bouquet of white blooms including a colourful knitted interpretation of the royal wedding (complete with Woollyam and his bride). The work of "knit wit" Barbara Frary of Fakenham, Norfolk, it was a big hit with the royal couple, who love a good yarn. "Oh, what fun, just look at this. I recognise myself in the salmon outfit," said the Duchess, while her husband chuckled as he pointed to a knitted corgi. "I Love it!" Camilla declared. --Hello Magazine 8th August 2011
