Kate’s Family Will Love The New Addition To Their Kensington Home

The Duchess of Cambridge has often times talked about the advantages and benefits of spending time outdoors, especially for children, also saying that it is one of the favourite things to do with her three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. And now with the newest addition to their home Kensington Palace, they won’t have to go far to enjoy some flowers and plants.

A colourful meadow has been made outside of Kensington Palace, as the official Kensington Palace account on Instagram shared a photo of it, complete with a whole array of poppies, campion, daisies, ragged robin and other native wildflowers in full bloom just outside the historic residence.

Multiple photos were shared by Historic Royal Palaces, revealing that this has been worked on all throughout the winter. Plans for the meadow started in September of 2018, with the seeds being sown in early April. The meadow adds a bit of needed colour to the palace gardens, giving the Cambridge family and member of the public a picturesque meadow to walk through. This new addition has not only attracted royal fans, but also lots of bees, so much so that the gardening team have considered investing in their own lives.

The Duchess of Cambridge and her children are sure to be regular visitors to the wildflower meadow, which is just seconds from their home at Kensington Palace. This comes after the Duchess had her own project garden to design, when she launched her RHS Back to Nature garden at the Chelsea Flower Show and the Hampton Court Garden Festival, so they could have asked her for advice.

Kate’s garden had a wildflower meadow of its own, as well as a pond to paddle in, a hidden burrow inspired by a Badger’s Sett, a waterfall and rustic dens. There were also branches and moss collected by Prince George and Princess Charlotte, while the future King also requested that his mum add stepping stones to the garden for its move to Hampton Court Palace.
