  • Yesterday the Duchess of Cambridge unveiled her garden display at the Chelsea Flower Show. It was a special project that took her months to design with the help of landscape architects Andrée Davies and Adam White of Davies White Landscape Architects.

    She wanted the garden to be a ‘woodland setting for families and communities to come together and connect with nature’, and she even got her own little family to help out.

    Over the past few months, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis all collected moss, leaves and twigs to decorate it.

    And there was another nod to her husband’s family in the display. As well as as a little stream, lots of greener and trees, the garden also featured forget-me-nots, which were Princess Diana’s favourite flowers.

    Meghan Markle also paid tribute to her in this way with her first Mother’s Day picture, which showed baby Archie’s foot on a backdrop of the blue flower.

    The Chelsea Flower Show is an event important to the royal family, who often attend it, including Princess Diana. This year, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, their children, the Queen, the Earl and Countess of Wessex all visited the show.
