Kate, The Duchess of Cambridge has been in the spotlight all week after she revealed her Back to Nature garden that she helped design for the Chelsea Flower Show. The woodland area turned out to be a stunning success, impressing both royal family members and members of the public-people came in droves and waited for hours to look around the outside space.
So royal and garden fans should be delighted to hear that Kate is set to co-design another garden for the upcoming Hampton Court Flower Show. The news was revealed on Saturday by The RHS on Twitter who wrote in a statement: “Thank you so much to everyone who visited the RHS Back to Nature garden at RHS Chelsea and for so many lovely comments. HRH The Duchess of Cambridge and @davies_white will be co-designing a garden at our next London show RHS Hampton.”
Her three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are probably going to be overjoyed by the news. The trio was the first to get a glimpse in their mothers to project, getting a private viewing on Sunday, when they were captured on camera running and playing around in the garden before it was officially open to the public.
They visited it again on Wednesday morning before school. A source tells us that the mother-of-three slipped them in the show so they could water the garden. Prince George was most excited of all to return to the garden, which in it has a tree house, a rope swing, a waterfall and a rustic den. The Duchess apparently told onlookers that the children were “very excited” to water the garden.
Among the first to review the garden was Prince George, who on Sunday gave us an honest review of the garden. Prince William asked his son what he would rate it out of ten, to which the young royal replied: “Twenty!” “Twenty out of ten? That’s pretty good,” William remarked, while Kate said: “Wow! How amazing is that?”
Later on, when the Queen made her visit the garden in support of her granddaughter-in-law, Kate told her about how her children helped her in the garden design and that they even helped her by collecting sticks from their country home, Anmer Hall.
At the Buckingham Palace garden party on Tuesday, meanwhile, Kate opened up about her family’s help with the project once again. While chatting with Jonathan Jenkins and Lindsey Dixon from London’s Air Ambulance, Kate was congratulated by Lindsey on the garden. She replied: “Oh no, it was a real family affair. I couldn’t have done it without William and the children. We were all very involved.”
