Duchess Kate gives us a cute update about Prince Louis

Posted in Indoor and Outdoor.

Naw. This story is so cute and wholesome. And we need more cute and wholesome in our lives, right? Let us tell you more.

Connecting with nature

Overnight, Duchess Kate – dressed in a delightful floral frock by Emilia Wickstead – unveiled a new ‘Back to Nature’ garden for The Royal Horticultural Society in the English town of Wisley.

The mum-of-three chatted to the children who attended the special launch and gave a speech about the importance of spending time outside and making memories with a backdrop of the natural world.

“Quality time spent outside provides children with the perfect environment to form those positive relationships with the people in their lives and the world around them,” Kate explained.

“I am not as green-fingered as many of you here, but I was passionate about creating a garden that inspired children and adults alike to get back to nature and reap the positive mental and physical health benefits that it can bring.”

“Louis loves smelling flowers”

Kate also spoke to a mum named Sarah Griffiths, who attended the event with her little girl Matilda, and it was then that she shared some details about life with one-year-old Prince Louis.

She told Sarah that the little prince was very partial to toddling about in the garden, and when he was outdoors, he was all in!

“She was telling us how her son Louis loves smelling flowers. He enjoys being outside.” Sarah said, People magazine reports.

Luckily this gang are well-positioned to foster Louis’ love of fragrant flowers and messing about.

The Cambridge family live amongst the gorgeous gardens of Kensington Palace, and spend time off at Anmar Hall, their country estate.

It’s hard to shake the cute image of Louis burying his nose in the royal blooms, and we would suggest he gives the exaggerated and approving sniff that only a toddler can.

The experiences we gain during our earliest years influences who we become as people. They influence how we interact in school, in work and in society and, ultimately how we bring up our own children. Whether it is planting 🌳 exploring 🔍 digging ⛏ creating 🎨 or playing; quality time spent outside provides children with the perfect environment to form those positive relationships with the people in their lives and the world around them. There is a well-known proverb – that it takes a village to raise a child – everyone here represents an integral part of that very village. By coming together, having fun, learning and experiencing new things, we can all impart life-long benefits on our children.

Louis is not the only one who loves mucking about outside. 

Six-year-old Prince George and four-year-old Princess Charlotte (who just started school!) have been captured enjoying in their mum’s Back To Nature garden, at the Chelsea Flower Show. In fact George gave it a score of 20 out 10 for creativity and general awesomeness!

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.”
