The Back to Nature festival celebrated the value of communities to our wellbeing and marks the culmination of the RHS garden project.

The Duchess of Cambridge opened the "Back to Nature" garden at RHS Wisley on Tuesday.

"As many of you know, I was invited by the RHS to co-design a garden for families and children for this year's Chelsea Flower Show and Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival", she said in a speech, according to People. In fact, Kate and her husband, Prince William, brought their three kids-Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis-to the Chelsea space to help demonstrate the positive impact the outdoors can have on childhood development, physical health and mental health.

"RHS Garden Wisley is our flagship garden, welcoming over a million visitors a year, many of whom are families with young children, who we want to become the next generation of gardeners", said Sue Biggs, RHS Director-General. "They influence how we interact in school, in work and in society and ultimately how we bring up our own children", she began. She was seen putting her hands on 15-month-old Matilda's head and playfully rubbing her hair as she spoke to the little girl's proud mother Sarah Griffiths, who described the encounter as "overwhelming" but "exciting", adding that Matilda had taken it all in her stride.

During the festival that followed the opening of the garden, Kate stopped to chat to another family, crouching down to speak to Dylan Corbin, aged three, who had a tiger painted on his face. Dylan's mother Katie Vinton later recalled the exchange between the Duchess and her son, revealing: "Kate asked, 'Are you a tiger?' and Dylan replied, 'No, it's just face paint'".

She was overheard by royal reporters telling one mom, "My little boy [1-year-old Prince Louis] loves smelling the flowers and being out in the garden". The Back to Nature garden at Wisley is the third garden that the Duchess has debuted this year.

She opened the Back To Nature garden, created to encourage youngsters to get outdoors and enjoy the natural world.
