Last month, the palace announced Kate Middleton would be helping to design this year’s garden for the Royal Horticultural Society.
And now the Duchess of Cambridge’s full design has been revealed on the official Twitter page for Kensington Palace.
With the help of landscape architecture firm Davies White, Kate has designed an idyllic “Back to Nature” garden for the Chelsea Flower Show.
“The Duchess of Cambridge, Andrée Davies and Adam White and @The_RHS are proud to reveal plans for their #RHSChelsea ‘Back to Nature Garden’, the tweet began.
“To inspire families to get outside and explore nature together, The Duchess of Cambridge’s #RHSChelsea garden will have a natural woodland feel and contain a: 🌳 Treehouse 💧 Waterfall and stream 🍂 Rustic den ⛺️ Campfire 🍄 Stepping stones.”
“The Duchess of Cambridge’s woodland wilderness garden at #RHSChelsea aims to get people back to nature, and highlight the benefits of the natural world on our mental and physical wellbeing,” the palace added. “The Duchess’s #RHSChelsea garden aims to trigger memories of time spent in nature, and encourage others to go out and create new experiences in the great outdoors.”

Kate has secretly been toiling away on the passion project for the past few months and we’re guessing she’s quite happy with how the design has turned out.
Her collaborators, Andrée Davies and Adam White, previously told The Telegraph that she had been in touch with them almost every day as they worked on the project.
“[Middleton] is very hands on, model making, emailing images, coming up with all the ideas that we want to capture,” Andrée said. “She would often bring a folder of cuttings with her full of ideas.”
They also revealed a few of her inspirations, including Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv, who believes the youth may suffer from “nature deficit disorder,” and the Japanese concept of “forest bathing,” where in office employees spend their lunch breaks relaxing in nature.
