PRINCE Charles is said to be comfortable talking to plants but now he has been given the chance to shake hands with one.
The Prince of Wales was introduced to a green-fingered guest wearing a living topiary statue outfit as he opened the 104th Ideal Home Show in Earl’s Court, in London, yesterday.
He was also given a tour of an “eco-home” at the event which has been designed by his own Prince’s Foundation for Building Community.
The Prince’s Arts and Crafts House uses recycled and second-hand materials to be more environmentally friendly.
He also sampled a Welsh drink with MasterChef presenter Gregg Wallace during a tour of food and drink stalls, and revealed he “occasionally” watched the popular television series.
