Royals may have splendid palaces across the continent at their disposal, but that doesn’t mean they don’t also enjoy the occasional flirtation with the great outdoors. While Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, made a surprise visit to the Royal Horticultural Society’s garden yesterday morning in Wisley, she also divulged that her one-year-old son, Prince Louis, is among those British monarchs with a predilection to Mother Earth.

According to fellow garden attendee Sarah Griffiths, the duchess “was telling us how her son Louis loves smelling flowers. He enjoys being outside.”

Kate also reportedly played with Griffiths‘s young daughter, Matilda. As Matilda squirmed in her mother’s arms, the duchess danced along to the soft jazz playing in the background, asking the young girl, “Do you like the music?”

The royal Cambridge family seems to have spent plenty of time outdoors this past summer. During the July King Power Royal Charity Polo Day event, for instance, Prince Louis was photographed outside while making funny faces with his mother and modeling a pair of oversized sunglasses.

And in a sweet exchange during a Wimbledon match in July, Kate obtained a new pair of the coolest sneakers for the young royal. The autographed Adidas Stan Smith kicks were a gift from tennis legend Stan Smith himself. Now, the prince can definitely play outside to his heart’s content—and do so in style.
