Welsh soprano Katherine Jenkins was one of the many guests paying a visit to see the Tusk ‘Not for Sale’ conceptual garden at this year’s Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.
Visiting the garden alongside her husband Andrew Levitas, the 36 year old posed for a series of photographs on Tuesday among the replica elephant tusks, to raise awareness of the devastating ivory trade.
She has actively supported the charity for many years, and often sings at fundraisers organised by royal patron, Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge.
Tweeting about her visit, Katherine said: “Powerful imagery at the TUSK garden Hampton Court – 80 Elephants a day are being slaughtered. This has to stop!”
