Kate Middleton Surprises School Children — and Joins a Bug Hunt! — at Chelsea Flower Show

Kate Middleton is picnicking with school kids. The Princess of Wales, 41, joined the children at Chelsea Flower Show in London on Monday. Princess Kate surprised the guests at the world-renowned garden show by joining children from 10 different elementary schools on the lawns by the bandstand. The picnic, under a large horse chestnut tree, is part of an effort to bring gardening and nature into the lives of more children — something Kate has been passionately promoting for several years. Students from the 10 schools are participating in the Royal Horticultural Society's Campaign for School Gardening. At one point, a little boy from Alex Reed Academy raised his hand — just like the classroom! — to ask Kate a question. "They've all been so polite," a teacher says. Ten-year-old Romasia told reporters that she and the Princess of Wales connected over the joys of growing fruits and vegetables. "We spoke about how fascinating it is to see how food grows. We talked about strawberries and how it takes time for them to grow and how rewarding it is to eat them then," the student says.
