Britain's Queen Elizabeth tours Chelsea Flower Show

A day after her two decidedly more casual appearances at the Chelsea Flower Show, Kate Middleton went back to her usual formal wear for an outing with Queen Elizabeth. The best part of Kate's look was without a doubt her new hairstyle.

The Queen looked impressed with Kate's garden design.

She and her co-designers were keen to recreate memories, such as wild bluebells, from her childhood.

Another said: "I am in love with these photos!".

William, who was pictured casually dressed and playing in the garden with his children over the weekend, joked to his grandmother that he had "smartened up" out of his "green clothes" and put on a navy suit and blue tie. It is designed by The Duchess and award-winning landscape architects Andrée Davies and Adam White of Davies White Landscape Architects.

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis got the chance to enjoy their mum's creation too.

The Queen attended the preview of the Chelsea Flower Show on Monday night.

But the Queen appeared to pay a subtle tribute to one of her favourite grandchildren through her outfit choice. The flowers were once used as poison.

"This is a garden with a strong message and I'm glad the judges appreciated the Montessori approach to education which encourages children to discover the world around them". The duchess made sure beetroot and carrots were planted in the plot, which is based on the Cambridge family's country home at Anmer Hall in Norfolk.

The gorgeous space also includes a treehouse, a den, a waterfall and a campfire, not to mention the spectacular flowers.

Sean Harking, head gardener at Kensington Palace, told Vogue: "Earl Spencer, Princess Diana's brother, gave some forget-me-nots to her when they were younger".

Kate has previously said she has "fond memories" of being outdoors as a child and is passing that passion on to her children.

The children of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, that's who.

"I really hope that this woodland that we have created, and the huge collaboration here, really inspires families and kids and communities in general to get outside".
