The Duchess of Cambridge revealed son Prince George is ‘grumpy’ because he’s losing to his younger brother in a gardening competition. 

Kate Middleton, 38, revealed her children are taking part in a sunflower growing contest to see whose plant can grow the tallest. 

Speaking at an event last week, Kate explained George, six, is upset because two-year-old Louis is currently in the lead.

Kate said: ‘The children are really enjoying growing their sunflowers, Louis’s is winning so George is a little grumpy about that!’ 

The Duchess made the comments as she joined families from East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (Each) to plant a garden at The Nook, one of Each’s purpose-built hospices near Norwich, last Thursday.

Kate and her family are living at nearby Anmer Hall, their country home on the Queen’s Sandringham estate. 

Using plants bought during a visit to a local garden centre last month, Kate worked alongside a volunteer gardener, staff and two families to help create a new horticultural design for a large patio area.

Marking the end of Children’s Hospice Week, Kate taught Star Pope-Saunders, 11, her brothers Hudson, eight, and six-year-old Sonny how to loosen the plants from their pots to replant them.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was the Pope-Saunders family’s first time at The Nook with Sonny, who was diagnosed with a brain tumour shortly after his birthday in February.

His mother Kelly Pope-Saunders, from Norwich, said after the royal visit: ‘She [Kate] said they are having a sunflower-growing competition and Louis is winning, much to George’s annoyance.

‘It was so nice to see her – and in such a lovely dress too – getting stuck in.’

Kate earlier told the family: ‘I’m always so blown away by families like yours, particularly having to go through all of this in lockdown. You show such resilience and bravery. You’re such an inspiration to us all.

‘More people in the country should meet families like you, there’s a huge amount of change for you all to take on and you have coped fantastically.’

Kate also met Liam and Lisa Page, whose three-month-old son Connor was born with severe brain damage on March 5.

The duchess said: ‘Going through lockdown at the same time, when you can’t see your loved ones, you can’t share with people – there aren’t other families necessarily here that you can share your experience with.’

Kate and the families worked with sensory plants such as lavender, bay and rosemary, and the garden also contains strawberry plants, herbs, geraniums and hydrangeas in a calming lilac colour scheme.

Tracy Rennie, Each’s acting chief executive, said Kate wanted to create a patio garden and was given a brief to include plants with smells and bright colours.

Ms Rennie added: ‘She was absolutely prepared to get her hands dirty – she didn’t need the gardening gloves we offered her – and even plunged her hands into the earth with that massive engagement ring on!’

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