The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have given the Queen a guided tour of Kate’s Back To Nature garden at the Chelsea Flower Show.
The garden aims to highlight the benefits the natural world brings to mental and physical well-being.
It was co-created alongside landscape architects Andree Davies and Adam White, and the Royal Horticultural Society.

Earlier in the day, Kate had played with schoolchildren in the woodland-themed garden.
The hands-on duchess, dressed casually in a white blouse, camel-coloured culottes and white trainers, climbed up a wooden ladder into the garden’s centre-piece – a high platform tree house, and sat on a tree stump during her visit.
