On Wednesday, the Cambridges looked back on their time at last year's event, when Kate Middleton was hard at work on the Royal Horticultural Society's Back to Nature garden.
And make no mistake—the Duchess was truly committed to the project! See the new photo of Kate's dedicated behind-the-scenes work, which has left royal fans amazed.

One year on from The Duchess of Cambridge's #BackToNature Garden, the Chelsea Flower Show is going digital! Visit @The_RHS to join the virtual #ChelseaFlowerShow for practical gardening advice from world-leading designers and experts all from the comfort of your own home. The Duchess's Back to Nature garden in 2019 aimed to highlight the physical and mental health benefits of the natural world and inspire children, families, and communities to enjoy the great outdoors.
The new photo reveals Kate hard at work in the middle of the garden's construction.
"Only the duchess can make gardening look so regal, honestly," wrote one Instagram user, whose comment scored the most upvotes. "Kate has really blossomed into her role," wrote another.
Kensington Palace, which shared the new photo, noted that:
"The Duchess's Back to Nature garden in 2019 aimed to highlight the physical and mental health benefits of the natural world and inspire children, families, and communities to enjoy the great outdoors."
And a glowing success the Back to Nature garden was. At the time, the Queen was noted to have been a particular fan of the Duchess's efforts and the final results of the garden.

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."
