Duchess of Cambridge urges children to ‘sit and feel’ real nature in Instagram age

The Telegraph¬†reports the Duchess of Cambridge has urged families to escape the on-screen visuals of Instagram to make time to “sit and feel” the natural world. The Duchess, who showed a group of schoolchildren around her Chelsea Flower Show “Back to Nature” garden, said she considered it ” really important the kids start to understand nature, and care for it, so they can protect it as well”.

She had brought her own three children along to the garden to show them the moss, pine cones and sticks they had collected from the Norfolk countryside to help her, letting them play on a rope swing and paddle in the stream.
