Prince William, Kate Middleton and Kids Play Around in New Garden
Kensington Palace has released a series of heartwarming new photos of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children celebrating the opening of the Chelsea Flower Show.

The pictures show Prince George, Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte playing in the dirt and enjoying the natural beauty of the Back to Nature garden their mother, Catherine, helped design for the royal flower show.

Theres an amazing fact that I learnt recently was that 90 per cent of our adult brains are developed before the age of five, Duchess Catherine said in a video released Monday.

Her office said Kate, wife of Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, has been a strong advocate in the mental and physical benefits that nature and the outdoors had on children and adults alike.

What a child experiences in those early years directly affects how the brain develops and thats why I think its really important that all of us—whether were carers, or parents, or family members—really engage in quality time with children and babies from a really young age.

"It's a natural space, a really exciting space, for kids and adults alike to share and explore," she told broadcasters ahead of the opening of the garden on Monday.

Inspired by her passion for childhood development, the garden uses natural materials and plants to create a woodland wilderness where children and adults alike can feel closer to the great outdoors.

Co-created with landscape artists Andrée Davies and Adam White, Kate's "Back to Nature Garden" includes a rope swing, a tree house and a stream with waterfalls.

Prince Louis, who turned one in April, was pictured practicing his walk through the garden and enjoying a ride on the rope swing with the help of his father.

The Chelsea Flower Show, open to the media and guests on Monday and to the public from Tuesday to Saturday, is the most prestigious event in Britain's gardening calendar.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte were seen dipping their toes in the babbling stream that runs through the greenspace. With muddy feet, Charlotte, who turned four earlier this month, also played on the rope swing.

The Duchess of Cambridge has released new pictures and video of her family playing in a woodland wilderness garden she designed for London's Chelsea Flower Show.

I really feel that nature and being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental wellbeing, particularly for the young kiddies. This is a natural, creative place for them to play, the Duchess added.

I really hope that this woodland that we have created, and the huge collaboration here, really inspires families and kids and communities in general to get outside.

"I really feel that nature, being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on physical and mental well-being particularly for young kiddies," Kate said.

Video: Duchess of Cambridge arrives at Chelsea Flower Show in culottes

The Duchess of Cambridge is putting her green thumb to use in an effort to highlight the proven benefits of nature on physical and mental health.

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis all had the time of their life on Sunday as they frolicked around in their mom Kate Middletons new garden at the Chelsea Flower Show. Kate and Prince William brought their kids to the Back to Nature Garden that the Duchess of Cambridge co-designed for the annual show. She worked with “award-winning architects Andrée Davies and Adam White” on it as well.

Kate sure looked the part as she embraced spring weather in a long floral print dress. In one picture, she holds up Prince Louis who is clutching a flower. The youngest kid of the three was also seen running around with a large branch in his hands.

Princess Charlotte took after her mom and also wore a spring-inspired dress as she tested out the rope swing.

When she wasnt swinging around, she and big brother Prince George dipped their toes and dangled their feet over a stream that runs through the garden.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share some new photographs of their family as they visited the #RHSChelsea Back to Nature Garden,” Kensington Palace tweeted on Sunday.

How they made the soldiers out of washers is perfect. Celebrity gardening broadcaster Alan Titchmarsh, said of the work: It is very moving. It is a very gentle but very powerful reminder of the 75th anniversary, particularly in front of the Royal Hospital.

“The Duchess of Cambridge 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,” they wrote.

Talking about the project, which has been paid for by donations from the public, the government and companies, Mr Everiss said: When I was first asked to do it we were trying to think of a way to involve the veterans in the correct way in the Chelsea Flower Show.

It turns out that George, Charlotte and Louis have all played a pivotal role in designing the garden. The palace revealed, “Over the past months, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have helped The Duchess gather moss, leaves and twigs to help decorate the #RHSChelsea Back to Nature Garden. Hazel sticks collected by the family were also used to make the gardens den.”

Mr Pendell was a dispatch rider for the Royal Signals 11th Armoured Division, who carried messages to the British Major General James Roberts. Mr Pendell, who had to travel behind enemy lines, was awarded the Military Medal for bravery and the Legion dHonneur.

The concept of the garden holds an important meaning for the 37-year-old. As the palace writes, she “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.”

Kate explained to BBC, “I really feel that nature and being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental wellbeing, particularly for young children.”

She added, “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.”

On Saturday, Kensington Palace shared photos of the duchess garden at the Chelsea Flower Show and some information about what it includes.

The palace wrote, “The garden includes a swing seat, hanging below the gardens centrepiece, a high platform tree house.” The tree house is apparently “inspired by a bird or animal nest and provides a wonderful place to retreat and look out through the trees.”

Kensington Palace also shared that the gardens main purpose is “to inspire interaction with the natural environment through its multi-sensory, green and blue plant scheme.”

Take a look at the photos below to see how Prince William, Kate and their kids enjoyed their day in the Back to Nature Garden.

On May 19, 2019, the Duchess of Cambridge spent time with her children in the “Back to Nature” garden she co-designed with Adam White and Andree Davies  ahead of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in London.

The family snapshots of William, Kate and their kids comes on the same day as another monumental occasion for the royals: Prince Harry and Meghan Markles one-year wedding anniversary. Earlier in the day, the Sussex Royal Instagram page shared a video with never-before-seen pictures from their wedding day. 

In the video, the Duchess said parents should spend as much quality time with their children at a young age as possible to help their development, particularly outdoors.
