The 2019 RHS Chelsea Flower Show officially kicks off tomorrow. Ahead of the event, which takes place at Royal Hospital Chelsea in London, opening to the public, today Kate Middleton was pictured at the annual show. The 37-year-old has been working on a special garden titled “Back to Nature” at the event. For this morning’s visit, she wore a white shirt which had scalloped edging at the wrist.
The £255 garment, from M.i.h Jeans, also had a cut-out embroidered design.
Opting for a very on-trend look, she teamed it with a pair of camel-toned Massimo Dutti wide-legged trousers, as well as a darker brown belt – which cost £69.95.
Prioritising the practical nature of the outing, she wore her pair of white Superga trainers.
The shoes are available to buy online, and cost £65.
Kate also wore her Green Onyx Siren Wire Earrings earrings.
The jewellery is from the brand Monica Vinader, and the pair cost £135.
Meanwhile, Prince Louis was dressed in his older brother’s hand-me-downs – including some red and white striped overalls.
A fitting choice for the wilderness she was exploring, Princess Charlotte could be seen wearing a floral Rachel Riley dress.
Prince William cut a smart casual figure – having rolled up the sleeves of his blue shirt.
The prince, 36, teamed it with a pair of brown trousers and shoes of the same tone.

How did Kate Middleton become a royal?
Kate Middleton, or Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was born on 9 January 1982 at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading, England.
She was born to Michael and Carole Middleton, a former flight dispatcher and air hostess. The couple founded a party supplies company, Party Pieces, in 1987 – now estimated to be worth £30 million.
Kate has a younger sister Pippa Matthews, 34, and a younger brother James Middleton, 31.
Kate and her family moved to Amman, Jordan, in 1984, where the future Duchess was educated at an English-speaking nursery school.
After moving back to Berkshire the family sent Kate to private school, St Andrews School. She went on to briefly study at Downe House before moving onto Marlborough College where she boarded.
For university the young Kate attended the University of St Andrews in Fife, Scotland. Here she was awarded an undergraduate MA (2:1 Hons) in history of art.
Relationship with Prince William
Kate met Prince William when they were both studying at St Andrews, and both living in St Salvator’s Hall. Famously, William reportedly took a fancy to Kate after she wore a see-through dress during a fashion show.
In 2003 the couple began dating and lived together during their second year of university.
The couple split in April 2007, however, in October they were back together.
Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his late mother Princess Diana’s engagement ring in October 2010. The couple were holidaying in Kenya at the time.
On 29 April 2011 they married at Westminster Abbey with a whopping 26 million watching the event live.
Kate wore an Alexander McQueen dress worth a reported £250,000 on the big day.
Kate assumed the title “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge” and also become the Duchess of Cambridge on the day.
