Prince William and Kate Middleton have shared some adorable photos of their youngest son Louis walking.
The photos were taken by Matt Porteous, and shared on the couple’s official Instagram page.
In the snaps, the pair’s one-year-old son can be seen walking around his mother Kate Middleton’s RHS Back to Nature garden at the Chelsea Flower Show.
Kate and Will can also be seen playing and exploring with their other two children, Prince George, 5, and Princess Charlotte, 4.
The Duchess of Cambridge designed the garden alongside landscape architects Andrée Davies and Adam White of Davies White Landscape Architects.
Her Royal Highness is a strong advocate for the proven benefits the outdoors has on physical and mental health, and the positive impact that nature and the environment can have on childhood development in particular.
Over the past months, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have helped The Duchess gather moss, leaves and twigs to help decorate the garden.
Kate told Monty Don in an interview for the BBC: “90% of our adult brains are developed before the age of 5 and what a child experiences in those really early years directly affects how the brain develops.”
“That’s why I think it’s so important, whether we’re parents or carers or family members, really engage in quality time with children and babies from a really young age.
“I really feel that nature and being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental wellbeing, particularly for young kiddies,” Kate said.
“I really hope that this woodland that we have created, in a huge collaboration here really inspires families, kids and communities to get outside, enjoy nature and the outdoors and spend quality time together.”
The garden forms part of Kate’s ongoing work on early childhood development and her mission to support efforts that give every child the best possible start in life.
The Duchess has committed to making early childhood development the focus of her work in the years to come, and believes that providing children with the opportunity to spend time outdoors can play an important role.
