Kate Middleton Relaxes on a Swing in Her New ‘Back to Nature’ Garden (Photos)
Kate Middleton looked adorable as she revealed the inner child in her on a swing she designed in preparation for the "Chelsea Flower Show" garden. It is evident that just as much as the common folk, the royals love to indulge in some fun when it suits them.
The lovely picture shared on Twitter by the "Kensington Palace" featured a giggling Kate as she hung to a swing wearing a shirt, jeans, and some gorgeous looking mud boots. She was, indeed, a sight to behold!
The image which was taken by a Palace aide showed Middleton at her finest. The scene was real, playful, and had no "royal" affinity to it.

However, the theme of the Chelsea Flower Show's “Back to Nature Garden” designed by the 35-year-old, is a woodland wilderness and the goal, according to the Palace is:
"To get people back to nature, and highlight the benefits of the natural world on our mental and physical wellbeing.”

In an earlier statement made by the mother of three, it was deduced that the intention behind the garden is to have a natural haven where children and adults alike can play around.
“I believe that spending time outdoors when we are young can play a role in laying the foundations for children to become happy, healthy adults.”

To bring the idea to life, Kate worked with great minds such as Adam White and Andree Davies. The garden, according to the palace, is said to contain "incredible edibles, plants for craft activities, forest scents and a diverse range of plants, shrubs, and trees of different heights and textures."

During an interview with the DailyMail, the duo working with her revealed that the Duchess was so involved in the project that she would bring notes filled with new yet gratifying ideas to the table. These include the infusion of a waterfall, stream, and a large hollow log that was sourced from a fallen tree on the Queen’s estate at Sandringham.

However, it was the pose that caught the eyes of thousands of fans; they couldn't stop gushing about how beautiful the Duchess looked in her comfortable outfit. Many of them are also going on about how the pose seems a lot similar to singer Miley Cyrus's famous "Wrecking Ball" pose.
Although Middleton looked youthful and breathtaking in the image, her kids, George, 5, Charlotte, 4, and 1-year-old Louis stole the show.
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. #RHSChelsea pic.twitter.com/MJPmbVkmIC— The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (@KensingtonRoyal) May 19, 2019
In another image shared by "Kensington Palace" on Sunday, the kids were seen exploring the garden as they played around the tree house. The little cuties were not alone; they were in the company of their parents who got dirty too as they played in the garden.
🍂 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 garden’s den. pic.twitter.com/SbmnZJyQGv— The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (@KensingtonRoyal) May 19, 2019
It is lovely to see the beautiful Royals having so much fun, and creating a place where millions to come can make memories that'll last forever. Way to go Kate!
