Kate Middleton has added a new skill to her ever-growing royal résumé: Garden designer.

The Duchess of Cambridge recently helped design a "Back to Nature" Garden that's making its debut at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. In honor of its debut, Kensington Palace posted a new, lengthy Instagram post explaining what the garden means to Kate and what some of its key features are.

"In recent years I have focussed much of my work on the early years, and how instrumental they are for outcomes later in life," Kate explained, speaking ahead of @The_RHS garden unveiling. "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."

In its Instagram post about the garden, the Palace wrote, "We invite you to take a sneak peek at The Duchess of Cambridge’s #RHSChelsea ‘Back to Nature’ Garden! The woodland wilderness garden aims to get people back to nature, and highlight the benefits of the natural world on our mental and physical wellbeing."

The Palace also shared an adorable picture of Kate on a garden swing in honor of the Back to Nature Garden's debut, and it's joy-inducing all on its own:
