The Queen is accustomed to receiving thousands of flowers every year, but today Her Majesty will be offered a floral tribute like never before - an 11ft high flower pot in the image of her own head.

The unique gift also comes with a matching terracotta pot styled as The Duke of Edinburgh and together they are filled with over 50 different varities of flowers.

They were commissioned by shopping channel QVC to mark the start of its gardening season. It took a team of sculptors and gardeners more than two months to construct the 'Royal in Bloom' flowerpots.

Richard Jackson, QVC's head gardener, said: "We hope The Queen and Prince Philip enjoy their floral likenesses. We wanted to create something spectacular to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee that also inspires Brits to think creatively about their own
gardens. Now is the time to get planting if you want a blooming marvellous garden by June."
