Kate Middleton mucks in to plant seeds with kids at hospice garden

KATE mucks in with green-fingered kids at a hospice garden she’s designed.

The Duchess, 38, collected plants from a garden centre before arriving.

She helped brain tumour lad Sonny Pope-Saunders, six, his sister Star, 11, and brother Hudson, eight, prepare pots for seeds at the Nook centre near Norwich.

Kate, in blue floral dress, revealed her and William’s kids — George, six, Charlotte, five, and Louis, two — are enjoying a sunflower growing contest.

She laughed: “The children are really enjoying growing their sunflowers, Louis’s is winning so George is a little grumpy about that!”

Giving each child sunflower seeds, she encouraged them to plant their own so they could watch it grow.

She also re-potted a large sunflower that she donated to EACH in memory of Fraser Delf, nine, who died in January this year at the Milton hospice in Cambridge.

Last week she spoke to his parents in a video call with the Duchess of Cornwall to mark Children’s Hospice Week and congratulated Fraser’s 13-year-old brother Stuie, who ran a sponsored 5k every day last month to raise money for EACH.

On arrival at the Nook, Kate was introduced to staff who stood at a distance from one another.
