Kate Middleton Was Adorably Nervous When the Queen Visited Her “Back to Nature” Garden

The Chelsea Flower Show is this week, and who can forget when Kate Middleton designed a garden for the show in 2019? Yet apparently, behind the scenes, the Duchess of Cambridge was adorably nervous as she waited for grandmother-in-law the Queen to arrive at the show to see her creation—even taking part in a last-minute cleanup and stuffing twigs into her handbag to make sure everything was perfect for Her Majesty.

Kate’s “Back to Nature” garden included a hand-built treehouse and a rope swing and was inspired by Kate’s childhood. It even touchingly featured forget-me-nots, the late Princess Diana’s favorite flower. When the Queen visited the show, Kate proudly showed her around.
