On Sunday, Prince Louis was photographed taking his first steps in public at the Chelsea Flower Show.

In new photos released by Kensington Palace on Twitter and Instagram, Prince Louis and his siblings – Prince George and Princess Charlotte – revel as they explore the Back to Nature Garden, which was co-designed by their mother, the Duchess of Cambridge.

“Over the past months, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have helped the Duchess gather moss, leaves and twigs to help decorate the #RHSChelsea Back to Nature Garden,” the palace tweeted.

“Hazel sticks collected by the family were also used to make the garden’s den."

The Duchess of Cambridge designed the garden in collaboration with landscape architects Andrée Davies and Adam White and the Royal Horticultural Society.

The duchess said she hopes the garden "inspires families, kids and communities to get outside, enjoy nature and the outdoors, and spend quality time together".
