Visitors to next week’s Shrewsbury Flower Show could be forgiven for looking twice when they see Wrexham & Shropshire’s extremely important guest.

The train operator is putting on its very own Buckingham Palace garden party-themed stand, along with London’s most famous inhabitant – The Queen.

Wrexham & Shropshire run trains to London every day from the region and to celebrate its connections with London visitors to the stand can meet The Queen and enjoy Welsh Cakes and refreshments.

The Queen, played expertly by Patricia Ford, is celebrated as the best look-a-like of our Monarch in the UK. Resplendent in garden party wear, pearls, hat and handbag, The Queen will be meeting guests from 11am on Friday and Saturday at the show.

Jo Phillips, marketing executive, Wrexham & Shropshire, said: “It’s not every day that people in Shropshire get to meet the Queen! The Shrewsbury Flower Show is renowned for celebrating the very best of the region and The Queen is our treat. Visitors should also keep watching as there are rumoured to be some grenadier guards making an appearance too.”
