This afternoon, Kate Middleton delighted attendees at the Chelsea Flower Show with an unexpected appearance. The Princess of Wales—dressed in her famous bubblegum pink dress—shared a delightful picnic with a group of schoolchildren.
This special gathering was part of the RHS Campaign for School Gardening, which promotes the importance of gardening among young students.
Kate and the schoolchildren, who hail from 10 different schools, also enjoyed The Savills Garden, a creation by the esteemed RHS gold medal winner, Mark Gregory. This captivating space seamlessly merges ornamental and edible plants, offering a unique and enchanting experience for all who visit.

Regular readers will recognise the two-tone pink dress Kate’s wearing at the Chelsea Flower Show today. It’s from ME+EM.
Kate wore the garment to meet Hold Still finalist Mila at the Palace of Holyrood House in 2021. Kate had spoken to Mila on Zoom during the pandemic and promised she’d wear a pink dress when they finally met—pink is Mila’s favourite colour.
On this occasion, the Princess paired her long pink shirt dress with a pair of wedges to give her look a relaxed, almost casual vibe, perfect for a picnic! They’re the Castañer Carina Wedges in ‘toasted brown.’
