Background: HRH The Duchess of Gloucester was filmed by VISNEWS Mar 2 when she attended a private preview of the Ideal Homes Exhibition at Olympia, London.
Pausing at the Australian stand the Duchess was presented with a toy Koala bear by Lady Brown, wife of the Australian High Commissioner.
The greatest show of its kind in the world - the Ideal Homes Exhibition - staged by the 'Daily Mail' national newspaper - opens to the general public Mar 3-30. Occupying three great halls of Olympia more than a million visitors each year throng the aisles and galleries of this annual Mecca of home furnishing. Here they can see all that is new in the furnishing, decorating and running the home, from the house itself to the smallest kitchen gadgets.
The latest in everything from food to furniture ... bathrooms to beauty preparations ... flowers to fashions is there for all to see. The variety and interest is unlimited, but it all centres around one thing; the British home ( in whatever part of the world it may be), and the British way of life.
