THE Princess of Wales gets a real buzz from her downtime as she tends to her bees.

The snap by royal photographer Matt Porteous was taken last summer at Kate and William’s home, Anmer Hall, Norfolk.
It was put online with the caption: “We are buzzing about #WorldBeeDay.
“Bees are a vital part of our ecosystem and today is a great opportunity to raise awareness of the role they play in keeping people and the planet healthy.”
Buckingham Palace is home to four beehives.
There are two hives in Clarence House’s garden.
The hives produced more than 300 jars of honey last year.
