Catherine makes secret visit to her Chelsea Flower Show garden with her children for this adorable reason

The Duchess of Cambridge has had a busy week, making numerous visits to the Chelsea Flower Show garden she designed.

Catherine even took her three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis to see the creation last weekend.

And it appears the three Cambridge children were so taken with their mum’s garden, that they were desparate to go back and see it again – for this very sweet reason.

According to royal reporter Emily Andrews, writing for The Sun, the Duchess and her children made a secret trip back to the garden early this morning, at around 7am, as Prince George and Princess Charlotte wanted to water it for their mum.

How sweet!

The royal family reportedly spent some time at the garden taking care of it before the Chelsea Flower Show officially opened to the public for the day at 8am.

Luckily, the show, which is located at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, is just a stone’s throw away from the Cambridge’s home at Kensington Palace, meaning the family would only have had to travel for 10 minutes or so in the car to get there.

It’s the second visit to the garden for Catherine and Prince William’s kids, whovisited privately last Sunday before the entire exhibition opened to the public.

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.”

In an adorable video shared after their first trip, Prince William asked his eldest son George what mark he would give his mother’s garden – with the Prince replying an enthusiastic ’20 out of 10′.

Catherine has been vocal about her belief that being in nature is of huge benefit for our physical and mental wellbeing, a thought which inspired the creation of her ‘Back to Nature’ garden.

In an interview earlier this week, she explained, “I really feel that nature and being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental wellbeing, particularly for young kiddies.

“The #RHSChelsea Back to Nature Garden is a natural, creative place for them to play.

“I really hope that this woodland that we have created, in a huge collaboration here really inspires families, kids and communities to get outside, enjoy nature and the outdoors and spend quality time together. #ChelseaFlowerShow.”
