The Duchess of Cornwall was the guest of honour today at the South of England Show at Ardingly in Sussex.
The royal even took time out of her schedule to 'knight' one of the visitors - the actor Callum Arnott. In the absence of a sword, a Sussex-grown leek was used to mark the occasion.
The three-day event is celebrating its 50th year at the Ardingly showground and though the skies were heavy and grey, the rain held off, and the crowds turned up. Derek Johnson reports
