Kate Middleton Reveals Why Prince George Is Grumpy Because of Younger Brother Prince Louis

Kate Middleton shared how her sons have turned gardening into a competition. The Duchess spends a lot of time with the kids outdoors, growing and caring for their plants. 

Earlier this week, People reported that the Duchess of Cambridge's outdoor projects with her kids are sometimes less of pure enjoyment and more of a competition. 

Kate Middleton talked about it last week during a visit to The Nook, a facility of Norfolk's East Anglia's Children's Hospices. There, she helped put together a garden with the volunteers.

At the time, Middleton planted rosemary, bay, geraniums, hydrangeas, lavender, and strawberry plants. She also added herbs to create a lilac-colored theme in the ground.

Her own kids, however, are not taking a similar project at home lightly. Middleton shares kids Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two, with husband Prince William. 

Her three kids all assist with a Back to Nature garden the family keeps at their home in Kensington Palace. Last September, the Duchess revealed that Louis was a fan of being outside and "smelling flowers."

🌻 This #ChildrensHospiceWeek The Duchess of Cambridge, Royal Patron of @eachhospices since 2012, joined families to plant a garden for The Nook, one of EACH’s purpose-built hospices. Using plants bought during her visit to Fakenham Garden Centre last week, The Duchess worked alongside an EACH volunteer gardener and a family to plant a garden that will provide enjoyment for children and families. Throughout the pandemic EACH has continued to deliver end of life and emergency crisis care as well as bereavement support. Marking the end of Children’s Hospice Week, The Duchess also met with staff from EACH’s care and facilities teams to thank them for the incredible work that they do.

Perhaps that's why the young boy is beating out older brother, George. Middleton explained: "The children are really enjoying growing their sunflowers. Louis is winning, so George is a little grumpy about that!"

Last week, Middleton commended the hospice health workers for caring for the children and helping out their families. She extended the praise to parents who also have to nurture children with life-threatening conditions.

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 addition to their garden at home, older siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte took up with their dad this time to help out amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

Earlier this month, the family's Instagram page posted a heartwarming photo of the children walking next to their father on their way to deliver food parcels to needy pensioners.

The photo showed Prince William holding an umbrella over the kids' heads as they made their way to a house. The selfless act was part of Volunteers Week in the country. 


Before the lockdown, Prince George attended his first football game where he and his father supported Aston Villa. Unfortunately, William couldn't cheer because they sat among Norwich fans. 

Sometime before that, the public learned that the young boy might have had a completely different name. Good Housekeeping reports that George was almost named Alexander, but it ended up as a middle name instead. 


Middleton also got involved in sports after the lockdown. She recently did a voiceover for the Wimbledon Tennis tournament, which was delayed due to COVID-19. In a part of the ad, she says, "it will have been worth the wait." 

While at home, Middleton is busy homeschooling the children and doing her best to manage life under the lockdown. She shared tips with Hello Magazine for other parents in isolation. 

Among them are maintaining good communication, holding fun activities, volunteering, and staying in touch with family members. Additionally, Middleton and William have been open with their kids about what's going on.
