Kate Middleton gets back to nature in a $3,000 floral dress: Shop the look for less
The Duchess of Cambridge is enjoying the great outdoors once more, this time in honour of her third Back to Nature play garden at The Royal Horticultural Society's garden at Wisley.
The mother of three attended the Back to Nature festival on September 10 to unveil her latest garden design, which “celebrates the value of communities to our wellbeing and marks the culmination of the RHS garden project.”

The 37-year-old royal spent time playing with children among the garden before heading on a tractor ride with fellow RHS Ambassador, Mary Berry of The Great British Bakeoff.
Kate is a strong proponent of children’s health and wellness, championing early years programs, children’s mental health, and the importance of sports and the outdoors, to which she brought attention in a short speech at the day’s event.
“As many of you know, I was invited by the RHS to co-design a garden for families and children for this year’s Chelsea Flower Show and Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival,” the Duchess said. “It’s been the most amazing experience and I can’t thank the RHS enough for giving me this wonderful opportunity.”
“I was passionate about creating a garden that inspired children and adults alike to get back to nature and reap the positive mental and physical health benefits that it can bring,” she added.
Kate looked radiant in a $3,000 floral midi dress by designer Emilia Wickstead, which she paired with her go-to wedges, this time from British high street retailer Monsoon.
She also added another affordable touch to her outfit with a pair of sold-out gold filigree earrings, which retailed for just $12 from Accessorize.
