Kate Middleton told gardeners at East Anglia’s Children’s facilities in Norfolk that her younger children had a point of contention.
The royal mum of three helped plant a garden at The Nook, one of the hospice’s facilities when she revealed her children’s love for gardening.
Prince William’s wife explained Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 5, and Prince Louis, 2, enjoy outdoor activities.
She revealed: “The children are really enjoying growing their sunflowers.
“Louis is winning, so George is a little grumpy about that.”
Kate also potted a sunflower for the Delf family, whose son Fraser, was looked after by the hospice.
The Duchess was keen to add a special touch to the event.
Kate brought a terra cotta pot with other plants from a recent royal duty after Kate visited Fakenham Garden Centre in her first public outing since lockdown.
In a message, the Duchess of Cambridge praised health staff for their effort during the pandemic.
She thanked: “the amazing staff for all the work that you do in children’s hospices around the U.K.
Alongside her majesty, the mother of three would have been taking part in The Ceremony of the Keys on June 29th.
In the ceremony, Her Majesty is offered the keys to the city.
The Queen is given the key by the Lord Provost to the “ancient and hereditary kingdom of Scotland.”
It follows a string of events that have been cancelled including tennis tournament Wimbledon.
Kate honoured the day by helping create a video for Wimbledon’s official Instagram account.
The Duchess of Cambridge provided the voiceover to the video.
In the recording, Kate says: “350 days, 14 hours and 12 minutes between the last ball hit and when the next was meant to be.
“Over the years your support has shaped this historic event.
“No matter the time of day or the names on the scoreboard, you have always been there, come rain or shine.
“This year sadly though things are very different, but we will bide our time until we sit on the edge of our seats again and celebrate again.
“So, when the time is right and we open the gates, we will be back again and it will have been worth the wait.”
