The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have shared family photos from Kate's Chelsea Flower Show garden, 'Back to Nature', including snaps of Prince Louis taking his first steps.
Prince William and Kate Middleton have shared some adorable family photos of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis playing in a garden of the Chelsea Flower Show, designed by The Duchess of Cambridge.
The garden, called 'Back to Nature', was designed by Kate Middleton alongside award-winning landscape architects Andrée Davies and Adam White. The garden has a wooden swing, edible plants, stream, and a treehouse as its centrepiece.
The Duchess said: 'I really feel that nature and being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental wellbeing, particularly for young children.'
"I hope that this woodland that we have created here really inspires families, kids and communities to get outside, enjoy nature and the outdoors and spend quality time together." — The Duchess of Cambridge on the #RHSChelsea Back to Nature Garden pic.twitter.com/286B9TOPGA— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) May 20, 2019
The Duchess also said: '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.'
In the pictures released by Kensington Palace, we can see Prince Louis take his first public steps, as he takes charge of a stick from the garden.
In the background, his older siblings George and Charlotte climb rocks beside the stream.
Kensington Palace noted that 'The #RHSChelsea Back to Nature Garden is a natural, creative place for them to play.'
