The Queen Made A Joke About Kate And William’s Appearance At Chelsea Flower ShowMay 23, 2019
The Queen made a joke to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge while she explored a garden at the Chelsea Flower Show.
The Duchess gave the queen a personal tour of the garden she designed for the show, pointing out key features including a hand-built treehouse.
Earlier in the day Kate visited the garden, called Back to Nature, for the press launch, dressed casually in camel-coloured trousers, a patterned white shirt and trainers.
But ahead of welcoming the Queen, the Cambridge changed into something a bit smarter, and the Queen quickly noticed.
Kate wore a blue and white floral-patterned Erdem dress and William wore a navy suit and a blue tie for the evening visit.
As the Queen came to the pair she said: “You’re all looking very tidy”
William replied: “Well, I’ve smartened up”, which was greeted by a warm smile from his grandmother and laughs from everyone around them. She also joked about him changing out of his “green clothes.”
The monarch wasn’t the first royal to have a look around, and Kate and William took their children George, Charlotte and Louis to have a play on Sunday evening.
The Cambridge released beautiful photos and a video, showing their kids playing in the stream, exploring the den and having a go on the swing.
Kate’s garden was inspired by her childhood and it includes things that were important to other members of the Royal Family.
The garden has carrots and beetroot which the Queen remembers planting when she was growing up. There’s also a waterfall in tribute to the one she has at Sandringham.
There are also forget-me-nots, Princess Diana’s favourite flowers, and pine trees as they’re what reminds William of his childhood.
The garden is intended to highlight the benefits of the outdoors to young people and was designed by the Duchess of Cambridge and landscape architects Andree Davies and Adam White of Davies White Landscape Architects.
