The royals and the joy of gardening

The royals and the joy of gardening

From the Queen’s annual visit of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, to Kate Middleton getting stuck in the garden, the royals have shown a particular affinity for getting stuck in the garden.

With the Chelsea Flower Show forced to move online this year amid the pandemic, we round up our favourite shots of the royals showing off their green thumbs.

Earlier this year, The Duchess of Cambridge shared a sweet photo of Princess Charlotte stopping to smell the flowers.

“I’ve got this one photo of Charlotte smelling a bluebells, and really for me it’s moments like these that mean so much to me as a parent,” shared Kate in the caption.

“I’ve got this one photo of Charlotte smelling a bluebell, and really for me it’s moments like that mean so much to me as a parent. • I try every day to put moments like that in, even if they’re small or even if I don’t have time”. • Swipe 👉 to listen to The Duchess of Cambridge speaking about her experiences as a parent on the ‘Happy Mum, Happy Baby’ podcast with @MrsGiFletcher. On the special podcast, The Duchess spoke about the importance of the early years, and about her landmark ‘5 Big Questions on the Under 5s’ survey.

Last year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show saw Kate and Will and their children enjoying the garden they helped create ahead of the show.

“Over the past months, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have helped The Duchess gather moss, leaves and twigs to help decorate The RHS Back to Nature Garden,” they shared with the photos.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share some new photographs of their family as they visited the RHS Back to Nature Garden at the #ChelseaFlowerShow on Sunday afternoon. The photographs were taken by @mattporteous. The #RHSChelsea Back to Nature Garden, designed by The Duchess and award-winning landscape architects Andrée Davies and Adam White of Davies White Landscape Architects, is a woodland setting for families and communities to come together and connect with nature. Her Royal Highness is a strong advocate for the proven benefits the outdoors has on physical and mental health, and the positive impact that nature and the environment can have on childhood development in particular. Over the past months, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have helped The Duchess gather moss, leaves and twigs to help decorate @The_RHS Back to Nature Garden. Hazel sticks collected by the family were also used to make the garden’s den. The Duchess told Monty Don in an interview for the BBC: “I really feel that nature and being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental wellbeing, particularly for young children. I really hope that this woodland that we have created really inspires families, kids and communities to get outside, enjoy nature and the outdoors, and spend quality time together.”

Queen Elizabeth II’s involvement with the Chelsea Flower Show started long ago. This photo from 1995 shows the Queen admiring one of the 700 exhibits on display.

In 2014, the Queen visited the Thai exhibit at the Chelsea Flower Show and was presented with a special flower arrangement from the Thai representatives.

The Chelsea Flower Show is known for its spectacular and stunning flower arrangements. In 2016, Queen Elizabeth II was pictured in front of one fo the floral exhibits, created from the silhouette of the Queen herself.

 

The Duchess of Cambridge takes a closer look at her garden on her visit at the 2019 RHS Chelsea Flower Show at the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

The Duchess was joined by the Queen to give her a tour of her Back to Nature garden.

Back in 2018, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wrapped up their tour of New Zealand at the Redwoods in Rotorua. “This place is your backyard. It’s great. It’s really special. Beautiful,” said Meghan during her visit.
