Kate Middleton and Prince William Tour the Chelsea Flower Show for First Time, Visit Princess Charlotte's Flow
By Antoinette Bueno
Kate Middleton and Prince William are continuing a family tradition.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge toured the Chelsea Flower Show alongside the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh on Monday, spending some time at the stunning world-famous garden show. The royal family has long made it a point to make an appearance at the high-profile event, Monday marking the Queen's 51st visit to the show.
Kate wore a bright green coat by designer Catherine Walker for the occasion, and made sure to visit the 5000 Poppies Garden, which features a quarter of a million hand-knitted poppies created to honor servicemen and women in the armed forces.
Of course, the royals had to stop and check out Princess Charlotte's official flower, a beautiful pink and green chrysanthemum that’s been named after William and Kate's adorable 1-year-old daughter. A percentage of the proceeds from each sale of Charlotte’s flower will be donated to the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), a children’s charity for which Kate serves as a royal patron.
The Queen is patron of the Chelsea Flower Show, which runs from May 24 to 28. Other celebs at the prestigious event on Monday included Demi Moore and Gone Girl actress Rosamund Pike.
Kate recently dished on Princess Charlotte and Prince George's new royal pet earlier this month at the official opening of the Magic Garden playground in London -- a hamster named Marvin! Watch below:
