Camilla Loves Hackney

The Duchess and the Prince of Wales were presented with 'I Love Hackney' badges as they visited at Hackney City Farm this week.

Councillor Ian Rathbone, the Speaker of Hackney, who presented the badges, said the Prince was a keen supporter of the borough.

The Royal couple's visit celebrated the work of the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens. The Prince is a patron of the charity.

The couple were presented with a rose bush, chilli plants, a jar of the farm's honey, flowers and a small handmade pot made during the farm's pottery classes.

How has Charles Mountbatten-Windsor been a great supporter of Hackney?

I think the borough's residents view of this royal parasite were best shown in Shoreditch when Charles and his wife were roundly booed on their first public appearance as an item.
