The Duchess of Cambridge has made a surprise appearance to celebrate the move of her Chelsea Flower Show garden to Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival

Kate, 37, invited children and their families, carers and teachers from her patronages (Anna Freud Centre, Evelina Children’s Hospital, Action for Children and Place2Be) to join her at a picnic in the garden on Monday afternoon.

The mum-of-three also led a treasure hunt and insect spotting activity.

Kate wore a £182 summery green square-print crepe midi dress by Parisian brand Sandro (reduced from £260) with her Castaner espadrille wedges and her £8 Accessorize earrings.

The garden Kate co-designed with award-winning landscape architects Andrée Davies and Adam White for the Chelsea Flower Show was a huge success, with visitors queuing for up to two hours to view the space.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also brought along their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis to play in the garden before its opening.

Kensington Palace announced at the weekend that the Cambridges will undertake an official visit to Pakistan in the autumn, at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
