Kate Middleton wants to appear down to earth these days. She’s been out in the spotlight more than usual lately. She has been focused on her philanthropist efforts instead of her own children. She just did a video for Children’s Hospice Week. In the video, she conveyed some feelings for the poor children. Kate Middleton wants to make it seem like she’s the rest of us. She admitted that she has a green thumb and she enjoys gardening.

The Duchess of Cambridge made an appearance at the Chelsea Flower Show. She stepped out in a £1,500 black floral print Rochas dress. Kate Middleton wore the dress to match the theme of the event. Charming, right? Kate Middleton made an appearance at the Chelsea Flower Show on Monday – a day before it was opened to the general public. She wore an expensive dress for the event, but it was figure-flattering and appropriate. Kate Middleton got high marks for wearing the forest green dress to the show in which she walked a floral print carpet.

Kate Middleton said she doesn’t mind digging her hands in the dirt. She even proved it by eating a tomato off the floor.

BBC Radio 2 host Chris Evans offered the Duchess cherry tomato from his Radio 2 “taste garden” at the show.

Everyone must have gasped at the event. Kate Middleton said she just started gardening with her two children, Prince George, 3, and Princess Charlotte, 2.
