The Queen, travelling incognito, visits Exbury
Disguised in a raincoat, sunglasses and a scarf, she rode a steam engine and planted a tree in Exbury Gardens. Has The Queen taken a leaf from James Bond? How often has she moved in disguise through her kingdom? And what did she do with her handbag? The Times answers none of these interesting questions.
Watered by more than 22 miles of underground pipes, the gardens are famously beautiful. They are also the source of Exbury azaelas.
