Kate Middleton Makes an Unexpected Cameo on Kids' Show to Launch Contest for Her Garden


Kate Middleton and her family may live in a palace, but she wants her children outdoors in their garden “rain or shine.” The royal mom says she encourages Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis to spend time outside whatever the weather, believing “it encourages creativity, confidence.” “Even a short amount of time — 10-15 minutes outside — makes a huge difference to both physical well-being but also to our mental well-being,” she says in a new interview on CBBC’s Blue Peter. Kate’s appearance on the longest-running kids’ TV show in the world, which premiered in 1958, is part of her ongoing campaign to help encourage kids to enjoy gardens. And she has teamed with the show to launch a competition for viewers to design a sculpture to go in her Back to Nature garden when it’s installed at a new venue, RHS Wisley in September. She has also created a special collection of outdoor activity cards to go with the garden. Two runners-up will also get to design their very own Blue Peter activity card to celebrate the unique garden. In a charming segment with Blue Peter presenter Lindsay Russell that airs on Thursday’s episode, Kate takes part in a race to build a den, helps some kids create innovative plant pots by upcycling some old Wellington boots and joins in a hunt for creatures like newts and frogspawn in a pond.

It will permanently stay at Wisley after it is installed. Earlier this week, on an outing with Prince William, Kate told wellwishers in Keswick that she recently brought her children to the Lake District for a few days of walking and playing along the hills.
