Duchess Kate like we’ve never seen her before

Duchess Kate like we’ve never seen her before

While the British Royal family is currently under lockdown, all royal duties have been either postponed or cancelled.

While the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are enjoying their self-isolation in their country home in Norfolk with their three children, they have reminisced on summers gone by.

Back in May 2019, Duchess Kate used her love for the outdoors to channel her creative side when she teamed up with the Chelsea Flower Show to make a very special garden.

It’s aim was to bring children together and create an outdoor learning space for kids.

Dubbed the 'Back to Nature' garden, the design and meaning behind it struck a chord with royal fans and parents across the UK.

The Duchess aimed to create "special moments that will be created and treasured by families now and in the future,” and used her own magical childhood as inspiration.

The garden featured a rope swing, climbing steps and plenty of greenery.

"I really hope that this woodland that we have created really inspires families, kids and communities to get outside, enjoy nature and the outdoors, and spend quality time together," Kate said of the design at the time.

This year, Kate and William have used their Instagram page to share another important image of the garden while the Duchess was working on it in 2019.

The 38-year-old can be seen getting well and truly stuck in.

"One year on from The Duchess of Cambridge's #BackToNature Garden, the Chelsea Flower Show is going digital!" The caption attached to the photograph read.

The statement invited people across the UK and beyond to join the show "for practical gardening advice from world-leading designers and experts, all from the comfort of your own home."

"The Duchess's Back to Nature garden in 2019 aimed to highlight the physical and mental health benefits of the natural world and inspire children, families, and communities to enjoy the great outdoors."
