Prince Harry has many skills, and gardening is one of them.

The young royal showed off his green thumb during the opening of the Chelsea Flower Show in the U.K. today, where he was accompanied by Queen Elizabeth II.

Harry's Forget-Me-Not Garden, named after his African children's charity Sentebale, was one of numerous garden exhibits at the anticipated show, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. But his garden was the center of attention after the queen, his father Prince Charles, his grandfather Prince Philip showed up to see it.

Prince William's brother is following in their father's footsteps, who was always a fan of gardening, and even designed his own for the 2002 show. Harry's garden was designed by British garden guru Jinny Blum, but Harry was very hands-on with the preparation and made multiple check-ins after his U.S. tour ended.

One of its main features is a pattern of hearts and crowns in a circular patio area, referencing Harry's late mother, Princess Diana.
