The Duchess of Cambridge at RHS Wisley
The Duchess of Cambridge finished her ongoing summer "Back to Nature" garden series at RHS Wisley this week. The Duchess helped open a permanent children's play garden at the Back to Nature festival and spoke about how she hoped it would help thousands of children to explore, grow and learn.
The Duchess was joined by British food writer and television personality, Mary Berry who is an RHS ambassador. The event welcomed hundreds of people from across the Duchess's different patronages who all seemed to be enjoying the event and activities as much as the Duchess. Catherine has long loved to serve children and events that are focused on young children are generally where her passions shines through.
The Duchess was seen partaking in activities with the kids, dancing with toddlers and enjoying a carriage ride alongside Mary Berry. Much of the Duchess of Cambridge's work has been focused on young children and youth intervention. She has stated repeatedly that the first five years are vital to children's mental and physical well being and set a course for the rest of their lives.
She is often seen crouching down to speak to children at eye level, a parenting tip she has also used with her own children. The Duchess is a firm believer in the importance of returning to nature for children's development and growth so the permanent play garden was an incredibly fitting close to the series of gardens she co-designed this summer for the RHS.
The Duchess kept with her floral theme for opening this festival as she had with her RHS Chelsea opening and her RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden. She also showed off her new golden highlights on the beautiful British day.
While the Duchess does not have any more engagements currently scheduled many of the Royals are returning to work after the summer holiday and her calendar will likely soon be full. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be going on a tour of Pakistan this Autumn with more details to be released in the coming weeks.
