Kate’s design featured at the Chelsea Flower Show back in May and it has been transformed for the RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival. Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis had fun playing in the previous garden. And it is now double the size with new elements which Kate’s three children are sure to love.
It includes a hill, a bee-friendly meadow with tall grasses and flowers children can hide in as well as a pond where youngsters can paddle.
Children from some of Kate’s charities were invited to picnic in the garden – with youngsters from the Anna Freud Centre, Evelina Children’s Hospital, Action for Children and Place2Be enjoying themselves in the green space.
Prince William’s wife looked typically stylish in a green dress and pair of wedges for the engagement.
The royal has a longstanding interest in the early years development of children and believes spending time outdoors plays a pivotal role in the future health and happiness of youngsters.
Speaking ahead of the unveiling of her garden for the Chelsea Flower Show, Kate said: “In recent years I have focussed much of my work on the early years, and how instrumental they are for outcomes later in life.
“I believe that spending time outdoors when we are young can play a role in laying the foundations for children to become happy, healthy adults.”
