Kensington Palace Just Revealed Their New Gardens...and OMG, George, Charlotte & Louis Are So Lucky

Perhaps Kate Middleton is putting her green thumb to use at home (she's certainly no stranger to planting for charity, like when she designed her own garden for the Chelsea Flower Show).

Kensington Palace just revealed their newly redesigned grounds, which have been replanted with loads of wildflowers.

"The gardens team at Historic Royal Palaces have been working on a beautiful wildflower meadow outside Kensington Palace," the caption of their Instagram post read, with a bunch of flower emojis attached to the end (Charlotte, is that you?!).

The post went on to say the new garden at Kensington Palace, where the Cambridges reside in Apartment 1A, consists of "poppies, campion, daisies, ragged robin and many other native wild flowers." Safe to say, George, Charlotte and Louis are going to have a blast running through those colorful flower fields (and we hope pro photographer Middleton captures it all in some gorgeous shots for the 'Gram).

According to the Historic Royal Palaces blog, the plans for the new wildflower meadow began in September 2018 "when the shire horses cut down the long grass." (Quick q: Is this a Lord of the Rings novel or an actual real-life palace?)

After that, the grounds of K.P. were raked to remove all other grasses and seed. Then the new seed was sown in early April, and once a few good rains came down in May, the flowers bloomed beautifully. According to the blog, the meadows are immensely beneficial to the environment, with the bee population at Kensington seemingly doubling overnight (which has the K.P. groundskeepers thinking a few Kensington hives might do well on the property).

Just imagine: Little George in a bee suit. Be(e) still our mini-royal loving hearts.
