The Chelsea Flower Show, a favourite event of the royal family, has gone online in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. But the royals are pitching in to make it a special week despite the lack of in-person events.
On Wednesday, the Cambridges looked back on their time at last year's event, when Kate Middleton was hard at work on the Royal Horticultural Society's Back to Nature garden.
And make no mistake—the Duchess was truly committed to the project! See the new photo of Kate's dedicated behind-the-scenes work, which has left royal fans amazed.
Kate Middleton's gardening prowess revealed in new photo
The new photo reveals Kate hard at work in the middle of the garden's construction.
"Only the duchess can make gardening look so regal, honestly," wrote one Instagram user, whose comment scored the most upvotes. "Kate has really blossomed into her role," wrote another.
Kensington Palace, which shared the new photo, noted that:
"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."
And a glowing success the Back to Nature garden was. At the time, the Queen was noted to have been a particular fan of the Duchess's efforts and the final results of the garden.
