The Duchess of Cambridge visited The Chelsea Flower Show this evening.

Since it was founded in 1913, The Chelsea Flower Show has flourished into one of the world's greatest showcases for horticultural excellence.

The Duchess visited some of the beautiful displays set on the grounds of Royal Chelsea Hospital. There are over 500 exhibitors at #RHSchelsea today, including gardens, nurseries, floristry and educational displays.

“For any parent, being told that your child may have a life-limiting condition, or may die young, will be one of the most difficult and isolating experiences you can face.

As Patron of @eachhospices I have seen the incredible difference that children’s hospice and palliative care services can make for children, young people and their families.” To mark #ChildrensHospiceWeek The Duchess of Cambridge asks everyone to join her in celebrating and shining a light on the lifeline services provided by children’s hospices across the UK – watch The Duchess’s message via the link in our bio.

'We all need to celebrate what today's generation are achieving' – said The Duke in a speech before The Legacy Awards were presented. Prince Harry made a speech to close the ceremony remarking that those honoured today had 'acted for the good of others and not themselves.' 14 year old Nikhiya Shamser from India started up an initiative 'Bags , Books and Blessings' – which has since given over 4,000 students school supplies.
Winners were chosen from all over the world as well as from across the UK. The Legacy Award recipients will have access to a unique development programme from @dianaaward to enhance their skills in four key areas; leadership, community development, social entrepreneurship and technology for good – enabling them to continue to carry out the outstanding initiatives they have started.

Today The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry presented a new award, on behalf of The Diana Award. @dianaaward honours the legacy of their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, by celebrating her belief in the power of young people.

The Inaugural Legacy Award celebrates the outstanding achievements of 20 young people from around the world who have shown qualities of kindness, compassion and service – without expecting a reward.

Thank you to all who attended the Party at The Palace yesterday, we hope you enjoyed the day!
As Prince Harry said: "We're here to celebrate you and to remind you, that we as a family, we as a nation, and we up and down the country will never, ever ever forget about the sacrifices that every single one of you have made."
