11-year-old Rebekah Hughes and her family, from Norfolk, are supported by EACH.

She met the Duchess earlier this year when she took the Duchess on an impromptu tour of a new charity shop in Holt.

Rebekah handed a posy of the Charlotte Chrysanthemum's over at the Holt shop opening and Rebekah took rather a liking to the flowers!

The producers of the flowers very kindly sent Rebekah the first ever potted version of the flowers in the world.
