The summer holidays have meant that the royal family have mostly been absent from public view, but now that August has drawn to a close, royal engagements will begin to flourish once more...
For royal fans wondering when we can next expect to catch a glimpse of the Duchess of Cambridge, the 2021 Chelsea Flower Show could be a good bet. The annual event is a favourite amongst senior members of the royal family, including the Queen, the duchess and Princess Beatrice, and will open on 22 September this year after being postponed by the pandemic.
The famous horticultural show typically runs from 18 to 23 May but, in 2020, it offered a virtual event online instead due to the first wave of Covid.
Of course, Kate's appearance at Chelsea 2021 hasn't been confirmed – and we may well see her attending other royal engagements in the first few weeks of September, although nothing has yet been announced by Kensington Palace – but the duchess has a long-standing relationship with the annual flower show.
We last saw Kate and Prince William at the show in 2019, when the duchess debuted her Back to Nature garden, which she co-designed with landscape architects Davies White. The garden was inspired by her passion for the outdoors and the proven benefits that nature has on physical and mental health, aiming to encourage children, families and communities to enjoy the great outdoors.
The Queen also attended the event and admired Kate's garden, as did Kate's three children – Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and three-year-old Prince Louis, who were photographed exploring and playing in it.
Speaking about the Chelsea Flower Show's delay this year, Royal Horticultural Society Director General Sue Biggs said in a statement: 'Whilst we are sad to have had to delay RHS Chelsea and are sorry for the disruption this will cause, we are excited that we are still planning to bring the world's best loved gardening event to the nation at a time when people are gardening more than ever.'
'Never have so many people gardened in recent times, nor needed the benefits of gardening more, so we will do our utmost to deliver a beautiful, uplifting and different RHS Chelsea safely in September 2021.'
Kate has been enjoying a summer break over the last few weeks, and we haven't seen the duchess make a public appearance since 11 July, when she attended the Men's Trophy Ceremony at Wimbledon.
The Chelsea Flower show begins on 22 September and closes on 26 September.
