The Duchess of Cambridge was pictured giggling as she posed on a rope swing hanging from a tree.
The mother-of-three helped design a “back to nature” garden for the Chelsea Flower Show and several photos of her taken in the garden show her looking happy and radiant.
According to Daily Mail, the delightful picture was taken by a palace aide last week as Kate took a playful break from putting finishing touches to the garden before the world-famous show opens on Tuesday.
Kate Middleton’s Back To Nature theme is part of the work the Duchess has been doing to promote the benefits of being outdoors for physical and mental health. Her aim is to rekindle the magic of childhood and she wants the garden to be a playground for children to enjoy, as well as a relaxing space for grown-ups.
Speaking ahead of the garden unveiling, The Duchess of Cambridge said: “In recent years I have focussed much of my work on the early years, and how instrumental they are for outcomes later in life. I believe that spending time outdoors when we are young can play a role in laying the foundations for children to become happy, healthy adults.”
According to her co-designers, Kate was inspired by forest-bathing, the Japanese practice of walking slowly and thoughtfully in woodland to “bathe” in its peace and beauty and recharge the body’s batteries.
