Gardeners’ World presenter Adam Frost has opened up about his royal connections in an unearthed interview. The BBC favourite credited the Duchess of Cambridge for changing the perception of gardening.
The 52-year-old explained that for some young people the idea of gardening is not seen as a particularly “cool” venture.
But the BBC presenter has opened up about the moment Kate Middleton unveiled her own garden design at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2019.
Adam explained that the presence of the royal was “invaluable” in sparking other people’s interest.
The presenter said he liked the fact she was happy to get outdoors and her being and inspire other people to have an interest in gardening.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Adam said of Kate’s garden: “It was lovely.
“I think Kate’s lovely anyway. She generally cares about gardens and she genuinely cares about people.”
He continued: “I thought the garden was lovely and she [Kate] will get out there and garden.
“For someone like me to have people like that who think gardening is important is brilliant because it brings it to more people.
“Gardening is sometimes looked upon as not necessarily cool and when someone that high in the Royal Family is involved like Kate you can have a few people going actually maybe I can have a go at that or maybe I should get my kids doing it.”
Kate’s garden at the annual Royal Horticultural Society show was part of her mission to get British children outdoors and give them the best possible start in life.
Adam also dished on other members of the Royal Family he has encountered over the years.
He said: “I was lucky enough to interview Prince Charles about gardens and it was the same thing really.

Meanwhile, the BBC host addressed what it was like working alongside Monty Don on Gardeners’ World.
The gardening expert praised the presenter for his vast knowledge and for taking him under his wing.
“With me, he’s been really good,” Adam explained.
“If you go into that world it’s a strange world to move around and be in.”
He continued: “And he’s just been there. If there’s something you’re worried about, or need a little bit of guidance here and there he’s just been there.
“He’s done it for a long time so he knows inside out. And he’s been quite happy to share.”
Adam added: “If I ‘ve asked for a bit of advice he’s been there.”
Gardeners’ World airs tonight on BBC One at 8.30pm.
