Princess Kate Shares A Glimpse Into Prince Louis School Day
The Princess of Wales gave a sweet glimpse into Prince Louis school day during a meeting with ex-servicemen and women at the Chelsea Flower Show.
Kate chatted with Chelsea Pensioners as they sat down to lunch during the visit in which they were also joined school children touring some of the attractions, including a walled kitchen garden designed by Mark Gregory.
During the visit, Kate was quizzed by some of the youngsters about being a royal replying “You have to work hard” – before telling them about what Louis has been doing at school.
Kate told them: “Louis is growing broad beans at school”, before she showed off her talent for drawing by sketching flowers and plants for the children in lieu of a signature.
The children were from 10 schools from the Royal Horticultural Society’s (RHS) campaign for school gardening, invited to an outdoor lunch ahead of the launch of the RHS’ world-famous horticultural event.
The picnic initiative aims to help bring gardening and nature into the lives of more children, something that has been championed by Kate.
She inspired the idea during a conversation with the RHS during 2019 when her garden was on show at Chelsea. The princess felt more children should be involved in the Chelsea Flower Show.

That year, Kate’s “Back to Nature Garden” aimed to highlight the benefits the natural world brings to mental and physical well-being.
The garden’s centrepiece was a high platform tree house, clad in stag horn oak that drew inspiration from a bird or animal nest.
It also featured a swing seat, rustic den and a campfire as well as tree stumps, stepping stones and a hollow log for children to play on.
Later today, King Charles and Queen Camilla will be visiting the Chelsea Flower Show as well the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Prince and Princess Michael of Kent.
The late Queen was also a fan of visiting the Chelsea Flower Show – and this year is the first since her death.
Unsurprisingly, various royal tributes will be featured at this year’s show, including a life-size topiary display of her beloved pony, Emma, in the Great Pavilion.
