Phoebe designs royal bouquet

Eight-year-old Sutton Valence prep pupil Phoebe Tresnan designed and presented a bouquet to The Duchess of Cornwall

To mark the visit of The Duchess of Cornwall to Chapel Down vineyard on Wednesday 15th October 2014, Phoebe Tresnan from Leeds designed and helped to make the bouquet she would then present to Her Royal Highness. 

Phoebe, who attends Sutton Valence Preparatory School, Chart Sutton, looked at the Duchess’s wedding bouquet for inspiration and researched her preferred flowers. A selection was used for the bouquet, along with some of Phoebe’s favourite flowers. 

Her Royal Highness was visiting Chapel Down in her capacity as president of the United Kingdom Vineyards Association (UKVA) to commend the winery on it outstanding performance in the UKVA English and Welsh Wine of the Year Awards, earlier this year. 

Phoebe’s father, Guy Tresnan, sales and marketing director at Chapel Down, said: ‘Phoebe was terrific. The Duchess of Cornwall spent some time talking to Phoebe when she presented the bouquet. She was delighted with the flowers Phoebe had chosen. I’m terribly proud of her; she was a great ambassador for her school and Chapel Down, at such a prestigious occasion.’
