What massive royal project is Kate Middleton currently working on?
The Duchess of Cambridge will co-design a garden at the 2019 Chelsea Flower Show. Middleton has teamed up with The Royal Horticultural Society and her co-designers, Andrée Davies and Adam White for a stunning “Back to Nature Garden” theme.
According to the Kensington Palace Instagram account, the aim of the garden is to celebrate the countryside and encourage families and communities to rediscover nature in its raw form and feel the mental and physical health benefits it has to offer. According to the sketches — the garden will be woodland inspired, capturing the whimsy and magic of the great outdoors that we adored as children.
Why is this garden project so important to Kate Middleton?
Duchess Kate Middleton is an avid gardener and an advocate for mental health. Her garden will combine both of her passions. RHS Director General Sue Biggs explained,
We could not be more thrilled, or feel more honoured, that The Duchess of Cambridge has co-designed our RHS Garden at Chelsea Flower Show this year, with Award Winning Landscape Architects, Andree Davies and Adam White. For over 200 years the RHS has been championing the power of gardening and growing plants for the environment, for health and wellbeing and to help people of all ages, from all backgrounds, to learn and grow. So to have The Duchess advocating this with us, and to be continuing our partnership with NHS England will, we’re sure, further highlight the powerful benefit that access to gardens, nature and growing plants can have for all our health and happiness.
Will Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis visit the garden?
The Chelsea Flower Show will run from May 21-25, 2019 –so we’re sure that Duchess Kate Middleton will bring Prince William and their kiddos to see her lush garden before it opens to the public. After all — outside activity is extremely important in the Cambridge household.
The kiddos nanny –Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo was trained at Norland College and taught about the importance of open-air playtime for children. Norland Nanny expert Louise Heren told The Sun, “There will be lots and lots of outdoor play; that’s the one thing you could say Norland are old-fashioned about. Loads of fresh air.”
