Speaking to Mary, the Duchess of Cambridge - who is set to appear alongside her husband and Mary in a BBC festive special - shared: "One of Louis' first words was 'Mary', because right at his height are all my cooking books in the kitchen.

"And children are really fascinated by faces, and your faces are all over your cooking books and he would say, 'That's Mary Berry'. So he would definitely recognise you if he saw you."

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share some new photographs of their family as they visited the RHS Back to Nature Garden at the #ChelseaFlowerShow on Sunday afternoon. The photographs were taken by @mattporteous. The #RHSChelsea Back to Nature Garden, designed by The Duchess and award-winning landscape architects Andrée Davies and Adam White of Davies White Landscape Architects, is a woodland setting for families and communities to come together and connect with nature. Her Royal Highness is a strong advocate for the proven benefits the outdoors has on physical and mental health, and the positive impact that nature and the environment can have on childhood development in particular. Over the past months, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have helped The Duchess gather moss, leaves and twigs to help decorate @The_RHS Back to Nature Garden. Hazel sticks collected by the family were also used to make the garden’s den. The Duchess told Monty Don in an interview for the BBC: “I really feel that nature and being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental wellbeing, particularly for young children. I really hope that this woodland that we have created really inspires families, kids and communities to get outside, enjoy nature and the outdoors, and spend quality time together.”

Speaking about the Duke's approach to parenting, Olivia Hancock - who promotes gender equality in sport - explained to PEOPLE: "He said, 'When George and Charlotte play football, George gets Charlotte to go in goal because he says he is better.'

"But Prince William says to him, 'Charlotte could be as good as you, George, so give her the same chances.'

"I think that was really good as it shows Prince William is standing up for equality as well. He is doing something for women in sport."
