The royal turnout is about normal. They always turn out to go to this event - other than the Wales branch of the family. The unusual visitors this year are the Cambridges who don't normally attend - although it is obvious why they did so this year but everyone else is just doing what they normally do on the first day of the Chelsea Flower Show. They aren't there to support Catherine - that is just a side issue for an event that is always in their schedule.

Indeed. Its usually an event we see the royals out in large numbers. Jack actually made his debut at a royal event, accompanying Eugenie back in 2016.

The last year on the first day: The Queen, Anne, Sophie, Andrew, Beatrice, Gloucesters, Prince and Princess Michael and Princess Alexandra all attended.

They do make a point of visiting the garden in question though, but its not a trip just for the garden. In 2015 when Harry's Sentebele garden was open we saw the same thing.

What a surprise from the Cambridge family
Catherine being so invested in this project and also nervous when the Queen visited was adorable. She was very happy and beaming.
A lovely garden I would love to have for myself....

What an amazing garden from Catherine and her team. Everyone seemed to enjoy it very much and it was nice to see, especially the short video with the little ones. Louis is walking already, oh my..!

It seems that HM liked the garden as well. Such a nice thing to see her and Catherine walking around, with William being very proud husband behind them.

The time around Chelsea Flower Show is always very enjoyable, but this year Catherine made it truly special for royal watchers.

"Still queuing at the Duchess of Cambridge's 'Back to Nature' garden. 30-45 min wait. I estimate 8-10k people have been through based on how many leaflets we've given out #RHSChelsea"

"If I thought traffic management at the under 9s football tournament was bad, the Duchess of Cambridge's, Back to Nature Garden queues are crazy. Splitting and relocating a double queue on main avenue was a challenge. 😂"

Kate's garden was designed in with RHS. It was never intended for competition


She still has 2 more gardens to go.

Here's a pic of the countess of Wessex climbing a treeladder in the Duches's nature garden

Yeah, I know from seeing photos of previous years. I'm sure they were notified of Catherine's garden and as they're relatives of her they probably visited to support the garden *as well as* perform their duties they normally carry out at the CFS.

Catherine's garden is a huge hit with spectators

Quote:
Kate's garden is a HIT as fans queue for TWO hours to see it. It's the only garden with a queue.

Botanical and royal fans have taken to Twitter over the last week to share their experiences at seeing the stunning creation, with many sharing their long wait to get in.

2 hour queue to see Kate Middleton’s garden," one user wrote. Whilst another one said: "This is the Duchess of Cambridge @The_RHS @NHSuk children’s garden at #ChelseaFlowerShow - the only one with a queue! #LovetheNHS."

I think Catherine's garden really interests people because as children play outside less, parents, grand-parents, schools & nurseries want to find ways to engage children in garden settings. There are some great ideas in that garden that people can replicate at home/school & I think it'll have an impact on garden design.

"The Duchess of Cambridge was back at the Chelsea Flower Show tonight, watering her RHS Back to Nature Garden. I make that at least her ninth visit since Wednesday last week and there are probably a few I don’t know about."

"Kate #DuchessofCambridge took her three children to water her @The_RHS garden at Chelsea flower show early this morning before it opened. George was apparently v keen to go and she told an onlooker he, Charlotte & Louis were very excited to be back to water it!"

The Duchess of Cambridge has joined forces with CBBC’s Blue Peter to get stuck in with pond dipping, planting and team den building with local children and Blue Peter presenter Lindsey Russell

The Duchess’ Blue Peter competition runs until June 25 and asks viewers to design a sculpture for her #BackToNature Garden when an updated version of it opens at RHS Wisley in September.
