Only one week to go until Chelsea Flower Show where The Duchess of Cambridge’s ‘Back to Nature’ Garden will officially be revealed. It was announced in January this year that the Duchess has co-designed a garden for the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show that will be open from May 21 to 25 May this year.
Catherine has designed ‘the RHS Back to Nature Garden‘ with award-winning Landscape Architects Andree Davies and Adam White, of Davies White Landscape Architects. The Garden is a woodland setting for families and communities, and encourages all generations, from all backgrounds, to connect with nature and enjoy growing plants for their health and wellbeing and highlights how being active in nature can positively impact our physical and mental health.
Over the past few months, The Duchess and landscape architects Davies White have visited plant nurseries, suppliers and specialist craftspeople who have been growing and building elements of the garden ready for the Chelsea Flower Show.
The garden is inspired by elements of The Duchess’s childhood and by more recent memories with her own children. Wild planting and natural materials were used to recreate a woodland wilderness where children and adults alike can feel closer to the great outdoors.
It is hoped that the garden will recapture the sense of wonder and magic that adults enjoyed as children when exploring outside. I am really excited to see Catherine’s hard work becoming a reality.
In the pictures shared by the palace, Duchess seems to be wearing Barbour Ladies Waxed ‘Defence’ Jacket that she has in her closet for a long time. Underneath the jacket, she was wearing a turtleneck jumper and gloves to keep the chill away.
She paired the outfit with Sapphire and Diamond Diana Earrings.
Before that we will see Catherine tomorrow when she will visit Bletchley Park to view a special D-Day exhibition in the newly restored Teleprinter Building, marking the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
