Kensington Palace has released a previously unseen photo of Kate Middleton, 37, on the Kensington Royal Instagram account yesterday.
In the photo, Kate appears to be judging the Blue Peter Royal Garden Competition.
The winner was announced on the British children’s TV program Blue Peter on which Kate appeared for a third time.

Royal watchers were quick to spot that the pink midi dress designed by L.K. Bennett is the same dress she wore to a family polo match in July of this year.

Additionally, Kate’s hair style appeared to be the same, leading some to speculate that the pics might even have been taken on the same day.
Also shared on the Kensington Royal Instagram account were images of Kate in a pale blue floral patterned dress attending the opening of the Back to Nature Garden at the Royal Horticultural Society’s garden at Wisley in the English county of Surrey, south of London.

"Whether it is planting, exploring, digging, creating, or playing; quality time spent outside provides children with the perfect environment to form those positive relationships with the people in their lives and the world around them." — The Duchess of Cambridge #BacktoNature 🍂 pic.twitter.com/Ks5447RAKh— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) September 10, 2019
Kate herself has proved herself to be quite the whiz when it comes to gardening when the Duchess of Cambridge appeared on Thursday night’s instalment of the CBBC program in order to announce the winner of the Royal Garden competition.
Out of hundreds of entries it was 12-year-old Jessica’s ‘living sculpture’ that most impressed the judges, and was selected to feature in Kate’s Back to Nature garden in Wisley, Surrey.
While visiting the sculpture the Duchess, 37, showcased her knowledge of flora and fauna.
The Back to Nature play garden has been inspired by The Duchess's designs and includes elements such as two connected tree houses and slides which encourage families and friends to have fun together in a natural environment. Picture: Matrix PicturesSource:Matrix

Remarking on the flowers growing up the metal trellis that make up a pair of butterfly wings she recognised them to be Clematis.
The sculpture also featured a twisted thorax hand carved from wood with wind chimes hanging at its centre, with the idea being that the Clematis will slowly cover the wings as it grows.
Visiting the sculpture in last night’s show, Kate said: “Wow, look at it, it’s amazing! And it’s enormous. Is it Clematis?
“It’s such a great idea; it’s going to be so lovely coming back year after year, to see how it’s growing.”
