Dressed down in black trousers, boots and a knitted jumper she saw its work with the Royal Horticultural Society’s campaign for school gardening.

While there Kate was handed a bouquet before donning gardening gloves and joining a group of youngsters planting daffodil bulbs.

She was also shown around Bug-ingham Palace – an outdoor insect house constructed out of old pallets and laughed: “Lucky insects have such a good place to stay.”

Addressing the kids in the playground she told how she was passing her passion for the outdoors onto her children – George and Charlotte.

She said: “I’ve got such fond memories of being in the garden and being outside from my own childhood, and I’m sharing that with my own children, George and Charlotte, at the moment.

“And I’m really excited about what you’re doing here and taking inspiration from that in the school environment as well.

“What you have created here is really so special. Hopefully you’ll have lots of memories of your time here in the garden, looking for insects or planting bulbs.
