The modern royals have hugely reimagined the way that the public get to see them when they are in a relaxed, family setting. In previous years, young royals, such as Prince William and Prince Harry, were often paraded in front of the cameras in frequent press calls and media visits.
Since Prince William, in particular, became a father, he has ensured that his children’s privacy is protected, meaning that the public only sees the Cambridge children at a handful of events each year.
As a result, any appearances of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis delight royal fans everywhere. The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is an annual event which has been running for 108 years. It is an occasion that has a long associated history with the Royal Family.
Back in 2019, the Duchess of Cambridge co-designed a garden in the show, alongside award-winning architects, Andrée Davies and Adam White. When it opened, she had three very special visitors come along to offer their verdict of the amazing Back to Nature Garden.
But it was Prince Louis who stole the show. This visit marked the first time he was seen walking in public.
The young royal was seen brandishing a twig while toddling towards the camera, he was clearly very curious because he put his face right up to the lens to have a closer look.
He was then helped up onto the rope swing by his doting father and given a small push while his siblings explored the rest of the garden. The other two Cambridge children were very excited too as they climbed on a waterfall barefoot. Princess Charlotte even showed off her impressive French skills as she shouted “Ooh La La”.
A royal source told HELLO Magazine: “The Duchess wanted to show her children what she has helped to create. She’s spent a lot of time on this and they have noticed. Naturally she wanted them to try out the garden and its features. “In a statement, Kensington Palace said: “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.”
