They have character, that's for sure! All three of Prince William and Kate Middleton's kiddos ventured out over the weekend, to explore Kate's "Back to Nature"-themed garden for the Chelsea Flower Show. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared some adorable pics of Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and  Prince Louis enjoying the space, but video of them playing together in the garden is next-level preciousness. 


  • In a video from ITV News, we get a peek into Charlotte's bold little personality. 

    She definitely is the little bossy-pants of the family, as evidenced by her yelling to her big brother at one point in the video, "George! Quicker, George!" At another point, Prince William asks his only daughter, "Can you help George?" and she merely skips by and says, "No."

    We're dying over here over her spunk! She also showed how much she loves to take charge at Prince Louis's christening last year, when she told photographers, "You're not coming," after appearing for a photo op with the whole fam. She also reportedly kept the other young bridesmaids in line at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding, making sure everyone waited for the proper time to make a formal appearance.

  • Will and Kate also shared this adorable video on their Instagram page on Monday.

    As Prince George plays on the rope ball swing, Prince William asks him how many marks out of 10 he gives the garden. "Twenty," he responds in his sweet little voice, and we can't even with the cuteness! 

  • Kate also shared that her passion for children and mental health awareness motivated her to create the garden. 

    She revealed on social media, "In recent years I have focused much of my work on the early years, and how instrumental they are for outcomes later in life. I believe that spending time outdoors when we are young can play a role in laying the foundations for children to become happy, healthy adults."

    She and William spent the first several years of George's life living at their country home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk, and continue to spend as much time there as possible. 

  • Even Queen Elizabeth stopped by for a tour of the garden.

    No word on if the monarch got to try out the swing, but we're sure the thought at least crossed her mind. After all, it's no secret that Charlotte takes after her great-grandmother, and just like she's able to take charge of any situation, she also loves having fun. 

    Even if the queen didn't try out the swing, we bet she got a kick watching her grandkids play on it. And she probably got quite the chuckle hearing Charlotte boss her big brother around.
