New canine pal for Charles at laughter-filled flower show

Thursday July 30, 2009

Among well-wishers waiting for the chance to greet Prince Charles and his wife Camilla this week was one particularly keen spectator.

Tamzin the dog sent a ripple of laughter through the crowd as she gave the future King an overly-enthusiastic reception when he and the Duchess of Cornwall visited the 128th Sandringham Flower Show.

And a warm welcome wasn't the only treat in store for the royal couple.
While Charles was presented with a special pin from charity Help for Heroes - which provides support for wounded soldiers - Camilla was the recipient of a sweet pea bouquet from one of the exhibitors.

And laughter became the order of the day as another fan of the 60-year-old Prince jokingly asked for an invite to his home.

"I asked Charles if we could come and stay with him here and he looked a bit shocked!" attendee Susan Parsons revealed.

After making their way around hundreds of trade and charity stands, the couple saw a low-level Tornado jet flypast before being whisked away on a horse-drawn carriage.
