Up to 100,000 people and hundreds of livestock braved the sweltering temperatures to flock to this year's Three Counties Show.
The event, at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern, Worcestershire, passed off without a hitch, although some of the cattle had to be sent home early because of the fierce heat.
A total of 99,000 people visited the show, where temperatures reached a sticky 30 degrees Celsius.
Highlights included the livestock grand parade, the rare breeds show and the red devils parachute team dropping by.
The only concession to the soaring temperatures was the grand parade being moved forward by an hour as the cattle sheds became too hot for the animals comfort. The livestock shows got the royal seal of approval, with Prince Charles entering an assortment of eggs and the Queen submitting one of her favourite horses for an equestrian class.
Their entries came from the royal estate at Highgrove in Tetbury, Gloucestershire. It is believed to be the first time both mother and son have entered the show.
Unfortunately for the Prince of Wales, however his dairy submission sank without trace.
He sent in a collection of wels summer, ideal, tinted, brown and mottled eggs.
There was better news for the Queen though, whose Haflinger horse came top of its category.
"Prince Charles's eggs didn't do brilliantly, they weren't in the top three," said a spokeswoman for the Three Counties Show.
" There is no special treatment for Royal entries and it was kept very quiet which entries were his.
"All in all it was a very successful show."
The Three Counties Show featured attractions including food and wine, country crafts, flowers, poultry, antiques, a fun fair, country pursuits and a display of vintage tractors.
Main arena entertainment included the grand parade of livestock, the Red Devils parachute team, the White Helmets motorcycle display team, and Paws For Thought dog agility.
