Prince William and Kate, along with George, Charlotte and Louis in the RHS Back to Nature Garden. The Duchess and her co-designers Andrée Davies and Adam White have worked closely on the project for the past six months, culminating in its unveiling this week.

Kate Middleton was as elegant as ever when she showed up to a press day for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in London, England, on Monday.

In brand new pictures, taken by a palace aide, a carefree Kate is seen laughing as she larks around on a rope swing, taking a well-earned break as she puts the finishing touches to her vision before the show opens on Tuesday (May 21).

Britain's Princess Charlotte, daughter of Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge plays. The little girl had muddy feet from playing outside, and looked just like any other four-year-old having fun in the garden.

To celebrate the garden's launch, the royal family has shared several adorable photos of Kate's kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and little Prince Louis, playing in the garden.

Maya Bell-Springer, 6, relaxed in the garden's small den made of hazel sticks - which George, Charlotte and Louis had helped collect wood to build.

Toddler Louis looked fascinated as he held a stone, while Kate, kneeling at his side, wrapped her arm around her youngest child.

This story was first published on CNN .com, " Taiwan passes same-sex marriage bill, becoming first in Asia to do so ." . Parliament was given a two-year deadline to change the law or same-sex couples would automatically be allowed to marry.

Kate's garden aims to highlight the benefits the natural world brings to mental and physical well-being.

"I really feel that nature and being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental wellbeing, particularly for young children".

"In recent years I have focussed much of my work on the early years, and how instrumental they are for outcomes later in life", she wrote on Instagram.

It's the Duchess' hope that the Back to Nature Garden will inspire families, like her own, to "to get outside and enjoy nature".

Speaking about the parents and carers who were questioned as part of the research, she said: "It has been reaffirming and immensely heartening to hear from the parents and carers you work with about what they need, and what they want for the children in their care".

Kate said spending time outdoors can help grow up to become "happy, healthy adults".
