Kate Middleton Is in Charge of Building a Garden, and She's Actually Well-Qualified for the Job
Besides Kate Middleton's many patronages, her résumé would likely focus on her royal title, "HRH Duchess of Cambridge." But she's also got a ton of experience with the outdoors and planting (exhibit A, B, and C), which is probably why she was picked to design an entire garden for the Chelsea Flower Show this spring.
The news was announced as Middleton arrived to the King Henry’s Walk Garden in the London borough of Islington this morning. While there, the duchess met with volunteers, painted bird boxes with kids and helped them make pizzas in the garden kitchen.

The garden that Middleton will design will debut in May at the Chelsea Flower Show on behalf of the Royal Horticultural Society. It'll be called the "Back to Nature" garden and will highlight the benefits of the outdoors on mental and physical wellbeing.
The RHS couldn't have picked a better candidate for the job. Just one question: Will George and Charlotte be able to visit during her lunch break?
