The young royals enjoyed their visit to mum Kate’s Chelsea Flower Show garden so much that they asked if they could go back again, according to reports – and it looked so nice
Members of the Royal Family attended the Chelsea Flower Show on Sunday (May 22) ahead of its official opening to the public on Monday.
The Royal Family traditionally tour the Chelsea Gardens, and this year, despite the Queen’s mobility issues, she was on hand, opting to be driven around on a buggy for her comfort.
She looked like a vision in pink as she smiled as she was guided through the extensive gardens.
But remember when Kate Middleton herself designed a beautiful garden for the show in 2019?
According to behind-the-scenes sources, the Duchess of Cambridge was incredibly nervous as she waited for the Queen’s mother-in-law to arrive at the show to see her creation.

She even prepared for the Queen’s arrival by stuffing a few rogue twigs into her handbag so that everything would be perfect – how cute!
Kate’s ‘Back to Nature’ garden is inspired by her childhood. It included a hand-built tree house and a rope swing. It even touchingly featured forget-me-nots, the favorite flower of the late Princess Diana.
It also had a waterfall, a rustic den, and a campfire, as well as logs, stepping stones, and a hollow log for children to play on.
The Queen seemed to love the garden and it was also liked by a number of smaller royals.
Princess Charlotte, Prince George and Prince Louis had so much fun on their first visit to Kate’s Chelsea Flower Show garden that they went back for a second private visit.
They were allowed to play in a locked part of Kate’s exhibit after begging their mother to come back – we can’t blame them, it looked so nice.
The princes and princess roamed around for about half an hour, also visiting other gardens on the show before letting the public in at 8am, with some members of the public queuing for hours to wander the beautiful gardens.
Kate said her creation was meant to raise awareness about the physical and mental benefits of being in nature, which is more important now than ever as with the rise of video games, fewer and fewer children are choosing to play outside.
The Duke was also seen rocking – well, age is just a number.
Prince George gave his verdict on the Back to Nature garden, and after his father asked him what he thought of it, a proud George awarded it a brilliant score of ‘Twenty’.
The Duchess of Cambridge told the BBC that technology-obsessed youngsters were “missing something” and added that her children were being dragged to play outside, “rain or shine”.
It was revealed that the Duchess was involved in every phase of the design – including the difficult garden work. A real sober duchess.
