I agree. To me, it looks like something for the archives, to be brought out at the next state visit, and displayed at the exhibition following the lunch.

“The competition asks Blue Peter viewers to design a sculpture to go into The Duchess’s Back to Nature garden when it arrives at RHS Wisley in September. To inspire families to interact with nature and the outdoors, regardless of where they might live, Her Royal Highness created a special collection of outdoor activity cards to accompany the garden. Two runners-up will also get to design their very own Blue Peter activity card to celebrate this unique garden.”

Good to see her continue her work with younger children, and encouraging them to get outdoors.

“The Duchess of Cambridge has visited her 'Back to Nature' garden at Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival.”

“Her Royal Highness co-created the garden with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) and landscape architects Andree Davis and Adam White for the Chelsea Flower Show back in May 2019.”

“Her goal was to inspire young people to explore the great outdoors.”

“The 'Back to Nature' garden at Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival has developed further and is double the size of the original, creating additional opportunities for families to interact with nature.”

The Duchess of Cambridge backs new campaign set up by inner city schoolchildren to persuade other youngsters to engage with nature

The Duchess of Cambridge has backed a new campaign to encourage children to engage with nature, saying it is ‘pivotal’ for their development.

Mother-of-three Kate, 37, has made early years development one of the cornerstones of her public work, raising awareness of issues such as childhood trauma and its link to addiction.

Now she is throwing her weight behind the Backyard Nature initiative – set up by a group of inner city schoolchildren to persuade other youngsters to become ‘environmental guardians’.

Announcing her support, she said: ‘Spending time in nature can play a pivotal role in helping children grow up to become happy, healthy adults. The great outdoors provides an open playground for children to have fun and learn life-long skills, from balance and coordination to empathy and creativity, with their friends, their parents, their carers or their family members.

‘I hope the Backyard Nature campaign inspires children, families and communities to get outside and engage with nature, wherever they live.’

Sources told the Daily Mail that the duchess was particularly impressed by the story of the Eco Emeralds, a group of environmentalists aged seven to 11 from All Saints Catholic Primary School in Anfield, Liverpool. The pupils took matters into their own hands nine months ago after being inspired by climate change documentaries such as Our Planet.

Using their own initiative, they contacted Iceland’s managing director Richard Walker via Twitter. They were invited to the supermarket’s head office in Deeside, Flintshire, to present their ideas – and were delighted when the company decided to back them.

The Backyard Nature programme, which is also backed by charities including The Wildlife Trusts and The National Trust, is pledging to help children across the UK spend one million hours outside by inspiring them to protect the wildlife on their doorstep.

Youngsters, and parents or carers, can sign up online to become ‘guardians’ for their area and find conservation events nearby.

It is the first time Kate, whose gardens at the Chelsea and Hampton Court flower shows were designed to encourage children to explore the great outdoors, has backed a campaign of this scale.

A source said: ‘When she heard about the initiative, the duchess was very impressed. Particularly as it came from the children themselves.

‘It is exactly the kind of thing she has been working to encourage.’

Nell Till, nine, an Eco Emerald at All Saints school, said: ‘We can’t believe our idea has been turned into a big campaign and the duchess is supporting us.’
