BBC podcaster Deborah James: A great honor: A rose is named after her

BBC broadcast presenter Deborah James, 40, shared a photo on Instagram on Friday announcing that Warda would be named after her. James, who was seriously ill with cancer, cried when rose breeders from the World of Roses approached her and asked.

The Queen also honored the presenter. Watch her reaction in the video above!

Mrs. Deborah James Rose aims to serve a noble cause

The presenter also wrote in the post that “The Dame Deborah James Rose” can be pre-ordered. The flower will be available later in the fall. She is particularly pleased that £2.50 from the sale of each rose will be donated to her ‘Bowelbabe’ fund. This will raise money for cancer research in the UK.

The number of roses presented at the end of May at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show is limited. “I can’t wait for my family to grow them everywhere this fall,” James says. “The rose is my favorite flower and I hope this flower lights up everyone’s smile,” she wrote.

The rose will forever be remembered by Deborah James

The photo posted by James shows the “Mrs. Deborah James Rose” with white petals on the outside and soft pink on the inside. He touches her deeply and gives her the “most beautiful thoughts” in which this variety can now be grown forever. Perhaps one day she will decorate her daughter Eloise’s wedding bouquet (12), as she reflects on the mother, who is receiving palliative treatment in a hospice for colon cancer.

The terminally ill Deborah James has also been recognized by the royal family for her charitable commitment and her fight against cancer. Queen Elizabeth II (96) awarded her the title of “Lady” in May – a term corresponding to a woman’s knighthood of “sir”. The rose that is named after her now bears this as well. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, 57, addressed her family, who are supporting her at this difficult time, with the words “My thoughts are with you and Deborah should know she has the love and gratitude of the country.”
