Prince George and Princess Charlotte are clearly delighted with the garden and are seen with their shoes off, putting their feet into the babbling brook.

George, Charlotte and Louis added to their mum's creating by collecting leaves, moss and twigs over the past months which were then incorporated into the surroundings of the campfire.

The Duchess of Cambridge helped to design the garden, and Kensington Palace revealed a sneak peek at the garden yesterday.

In one of the pictures, Kate, who was an art history major at the University of St. Andrews, can be seen playfully enjoying a swing seat that is placed under a tree house, which serves as the garden's centerpiece.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte made an adorable appearance at the Chelsea Flower Show on Sunday.

"In recent years, I have focused much of my work on the early years, and how instrumental they are for outcomes later in life", she said an Instagram caption accompanying a photo of her in the garden.

She tells garden expert Monty Don in an interview, which airs on Monday, May 20 at 7.30pm on BBC One, "I really feel that nature and being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental wellbeing, particularly for young children".

The Duchess told United Kingdom gardening presenter 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".

The garden forms part of Her Royal Highness's ongoing work on early childhood development and her mission to support efforts that give every child the best possible start in life.

She has been closely involved in the project from the very beginning.

"And what a child experiences in those really early years directly affects how the brain develops and that's why I think it's so important that all of us, whether we're parents or carers or family members, really engage in quality time with our children and babies from a really young age".

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