Sorry, nothing in cart.
The Duchess of Cambridge has posted an unseen image of herself in honour of the annual Chelsea Flower Show.
As this year’s event has to take place virtually due to lockdown restrictions, Kate Middleton wanted to remember some happier times by releasing a photo of herself surrounded by greenery on the official Kensington Royal Twitter account.
It has been one year since the 38-year-old worked on the 2019 RHS Chelsea Flower Show Garden, Back To Nature, to encourage people to share the experience of gardening with their children.
The royal decided to publish the photo, which shows her hard at work preparing the impressive scene, to raise awareness of the health benefits of gardening and encourage people to tune in to this year’s virtual event.
“Visit @The_RHS to join the virtual #ChelseaFlowerShow for practical gardening advice from world-leading designers and experts, all from the comfort of your own home,” she captioned the photo.
It went on to say: “The Duchess of Cambridge’s #BackToNature garden in 2019 aimed to highlight the physical and mental health benefits of the natural world and inspire children, families and communities to enjoy the great outdoors.”
Last year, she designed the beautiful garden with help from landscape architects Andree Davies and Adam White. It included plants for craft fun, edibles, forest scents and a wide range of plants, trees and shrubs of varying heights and textures.
The aim of the event was to get more youngsters involved in growing plants and learning about nature.
Although horticultural fans will not be able to enjoy such a spectacle this year, they can still receive gardening tips, and receive advice from world-leading designers and plant experts. The event will culminate on Saturday (May 23rd) with tips being given by 2019’s Best in Show designer Andy Sturgeon on what to grow in small spaces.
