The Duchess of Cambridge has designed a show garden at London's Chelsea Flower Show, featuring a woodland wilderness that highlights the benefits the natural world can bring to the mental and physical wellbeing of children and adults alike.
Co-created with landscape artists Andree Davies and Adam White, Kate's "Back to Nature Garden" includes a rope swing, a high platform tree house and a stream with waterfalls.
"It's a natural space, a really exciting space, for kids and adults alike to share and explore," she told broadcasters ahead of the opening of the garden on Monday.
"I really feel that nature, being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on physical and mental well-being particularly for young kiddies."
Kate, who has three children with Prince William said she had been focusing on early childhood development in her recent work.
"I believe that spending time outdoors when we are young can play a role in laying the foundations for children to become happy, healthy adults," she said in an Instagram post about the garden.
The garden, which includes a rope swing, a tree house and a stream with waterfalls, was enjoyed by the Duke and Duchess' children George, Charlotte and Louis, on Sunday.
The show, which opens to the public on Tuesday, is the most prestigious event in Britain's gardening calendar and is organised by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), of which the Queen is patron.
Kate and William were among several members of the royal family who accompanied 93-year-old Elizabeth on her tour of the show, which is held in the grounds of London's Royal Hospital Chelsea.
