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.”

Prince William and Kate Middleton's Instagram account, Kensington Royal, shared a photo taken of the siblings before they headed off to school. Princess Charlotte and Prince George held onto each other looking smart, sharp, and smiling widely. 

The photo got accompanied by the words:

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share a photograph of Prince George and Princess Charlotte at Kensington Palace this morning. The photo was taken shortly before the Royal Highnesses left for Thomas's Battersea this morning."

Royal lovers loved the photo, and one person wrote:

"They are adorable children." 

Another fan wrote:

"Such an adorable photo, thank you, William, and [Kate] for sharing this wonderful day with us."


September 5, was Princess Charlotte's first day at the elementary school. She was previously attending Willocks Nursery School before joining her brother at the south-west London school where kindness is taught to be as important as academic success. 

The little girl wore what is called a transitional uniform of pinafore, white summer blouse, white socks, and black shoes. Prince William and Middleton got a 2% discount for having a second child at Thomas's, and Prince George who's been attending the school since 2017, is expected to show his little sister the ropes.

Earlier, the Royals shared a video via Kensington Royal showing Princess Charlotte's arrival for her first day at school. Unlike that of the young Prince, which saw Middleton absent due to hyperemesis, she was present to escort her little girl and son.

The Royals smiled as the little girl who's known for her boldness walked shyly behind her mother. She soon became her usual self, as she played with her ponytail, and waved at the cameramen outside the school. Prince William said his only female child is excited for her first day, and Prince George equally looked excited.

With the school year already off to a good start, it is evident that Princess Charlotte and Prince George will have a great year and the support of each other.
