It is not a silent difference, the early years of a kid’s life are defining years. A safe and secure childhood with a loving family is the foundation of great lives. Duchess who her self comes from a close-knit family understands the importance of loving and caring family home and along with her husband Prince William doing her best to give the same safe and full of love upbringing to her own kids that she had.

And she is determined to make sure that every child in the UK gets that too. Whether it is her patronages, her Back to Nature Garden or her support to Backyard Nature, her every step is focused on the next generation of Great Britain.

Prof Peter Fonagy, the CEO of Anna Freud Centre, a Patronage of Catherine, said, “The Duchess of Cambridge has done more to turn the tide of stigma around mental health than any other single individual that I could name. To the millions of children who have been suffering in silence, she is their voice.

It is true on so many levels. The Duchess used her position to put the limelight on an issue that was considered a taboo otherwise. No one was talking about early years’ importance, child and parent mental health this openly at such a high profile platform. She talked about her own experiences and the difficulties she faced as a new Mother, postpartum depression. She has started the conversation and brought the issue into the centre of the stage, from here it will only go up and beyond. She is truly turning into Children’s Princess. As People Magazine’s cover said, ” The Mom Who Will  Be Queen”.

Yesterday, Palace released the result of a competition held by BBC’s Children Show Blue Peter Pan.

In June this year, Duchess collaborated with Blue Peter to launch a special competition that asked viewers to design a sculpture that went into the Duchess’s Back to Nature garden at RHS Wisley last week. The winner’s name is Jessica.

Jessica’s beautiful winning sculpture is made of wood and recycled metal, wowing the judges with its stunning butterfly wings, covered in clematis flowers. Lucy and Megan, who designed beautiful tin can herbs and den building activity cards were the runner-ups.

The Duchess of Cambridge joined Ben from the RHS and George Hassall in the judging panel to pick out the winning entry. In this picture, Duchess is wearing L.K. Bennett Silk Madison Dress that she first wore in July this year when Prince Louis of Cambridge Made his Polo Debut.

Catherine made her second appearance on Blue Peter in yesterday’s show to unveil the scultpture along with Jessica and Ben. The clip was shot on the same day when Duchess visited her Back to Nature garden at RHS Wisley in last week.


Duchess of Cambridge, a country girl at heart, has been a long standing advocate of physical and mental benefits of spending time outdoors with family, and the positive impact that nature and the environment can have on childhood development. During her first appearance, Duchess talked to the show presenter Lindsey Russell about her love for the spending time outside and its benefits. When Russell asked Duchess whether getting outside with her family is something she does a lot, Duchess replied laughingly,

Yes, “rain or shine” they get “dragged outside. But it’s great, and I see it encourage creativity, confidence. Even a short amount of time 10 to 15 minutes outside makes a huge difference I think to both physical well-being but also to our mental well-being.”
