Carole Middleton Lets Grandchildren George, Charlotte, And Louis Get Muddy While Gardening with Her
The Duchess of Cambridge's mother, Carole Middleton, is passing down her passion for gardening onto her grandchildren and allows them to explore while in the garden.
Carole Middleton's grandkids Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, have the leisure of getting muddy while gardening with their grandmother.
Middleton is now a grandmother of five as her second daughter Pippa Middleton recently gave birth to her second child, a daughter named Grace.

Baby Grace now joins her older brother Arthur. Middleton is getting her oldest grandkids interested in learning how to plant. She revealed that she has activity stations for them too.
“If I’m doing planting with my grandchildren, I like to have it all laid out at ‘activity stations’ with their own little trowel and pot so they can get started immediately,” she told UK’s Saga magazine.

Middleton continued that it would be no good to call kids over to her home for an activity only for them to fuss about searching for the right equipment and clearing space. She added they would lose interest.
The 66-year-old shared how important it is to instill the values of appreciating nature to her grandchildren and that part of that is allowing them to get dirty in the garden.
In October 2020, her son-in-law, Prince William, also got candid about his children’s love for gardening. The Duke shared images of his kids while revealing his eldest child Prince George, 7, is like a caged animal if he is not spending time outdoors.
At the time, the 38-year-old was filming his ITV documentary, and talked about tackling climate change. Photographs of his brood popped up during filming and displayed the kids gardening.
In June last year, their mother, Kate Middleton, revealed they love visiting garden centers. The 39-year-old told the Fakenham Garden Centre owners how her kids adore the centre and that it is a great place for kids and families to come together and spend their time there.
The Duchess also shared her firstborn enjoys playing with Venus flytrap plants and that he and his siblings have been growing tomato plants at home.
That same month the mom of three helped to plant at a children’s hospice in Norfolk. While there, she opened up about her youngest son Prince Louis’s flower plant.
The Duchess shared her son inherited her green thumb while adding the 3-year-old’s sunflower was winning and that his older brother was grumpy about it.
