Duchess of Cambridge designs 'magical' garden at Chelsea Flower Show

The Duchess of Cambridge has unveiled the inspiration behind the garden she has helped design for the Chelsea Flower Show: recapturing her tomboy childhood and the benefits of being outdoors for physical and mental health.

The mother-of-three wanted her garden to be a playground for children to enjoy, as well as a relaxing space for grown-ups.

In one of the pictures, Kate, who was an art history major at the University of St. Andrews, can be seen playfully enjoying a swing seat that is placed under a tree house, which serves as the garden's centerpiece.

A barefoot George and Charlotte are seen dangling their legs over a stream, while an excited Louis runs along a wooden path carrying a branch as the Duke of Cambridge looks on smiling.

When you have designed a woodland playground, it clearly helps if there are children to test it - so naturally the Duchess of Cambridge turned to her own little scamps for help.

Can't get enough of PEOPLE's Royals coverage? .

The garden forms part of Her Royal Highness's ongoing work on early childhood development and her mission to support efforts that give every child the best possible start in life. Maybe Kate's got something here after all!

With the sneak peek yesterday, the Duchess released a short statement saying, "I believe that spending time outdoors when we are young can play a role in laying the foundations for children to become happy, healthy adults". "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", the Duchess said in the interview.

"Over the past few months, The Duchess and landscape architects Davies White have visited plant nurseries, suppliers and specialist craftspeople who have been growing and building elements of the garden ready for Chelsea", Kensington Palace said in a previous statement.
