Kate brings ray of garden sunshine.

THE Duchess of Cambridge has launched her final garden of the summer season aimed at supporting the health and well-being of children.

At the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Garden Wisley in Surrey, Kate opened her Back to Nature play garden in bright sunshine.

It has been inspired by previous open spaces she co-created with landscape architects Andree Davies and Adam White, with input from the RHS.

Sue Biggs, RHS director general, said: "We are grateful to the duchess for the incredible impact this Back to Nature collaboration has had.

"There is no doubt that this project, through her passion and vision, has highlighted that access to natural environments and green spaces isn't just a nice to have, it's vital to have."

Kate's co-created gardens were previously exhibited at the Chelsea Flower Show and the Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival, with the aim of highlighting how time outdoors can enrich a child's early development.

The final Back to Nature space includes elements like the hollow log from Chelsea and wildflower meadow and rolling hill showcased at Hampton Court. New features include connected tree houses and slides.
