With the arrival of  Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son Archie, the social media-verse may have lost sight of the rest of the royal family—for a minute that is. Prince William and Kate Middleton recently posted a series of sweet family pics on Instagram. And they are absolutely aww-dorable!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge appear to have enjoyed a day in nature. The photos, taken during a family visit to the RHS Back to Nature Garden at the Chelsea Flower Show, feature all kinds of family fun. According to the IG post, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and even Prince Louis helped Middleton to gather natural items (moss, leaves and twigs) to decorate the garden with.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share some new photographs of their family as they visited the RHS Back to Nature Garden at the #ChelseaFlowerShow on Sunday afternoon. The photographs were taken by @mattporteous. The #RHSChelsea Back to Nature Garden, designed by The Duchess and award-winning landscape architects Andrée Davies and Adam White of Davies White Landscape Architects, is a woodland setting for families and communities to come together and connect with nature. Her Royal Highness is a strong advocate for the proven benefits the outdoors has on physical and mental health, and the positive impact that nature and the environment can have on childhood development in particular. Over the past months, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have helped The Duchess gather moss, leaves and twigs to help decorate @The_RHS Back to Nature Garden. Hazel sticks collected by the family were also used to make the garden’s den. The Duchess told Monty Don in an interview for the BBC: “I really feel that nature and being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental wellbeing, particularly for young children. I really hope that this woodland that we have created really inspires families, kids and communities to get outside, enjoy nature and the outdoors, and spend quality time together.”

So why a day of garden-filled play? Besides the obvious outdoor adventures, Middleton wrote, on her IG post, “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.”
