When Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1, visited mom Kate Middleton‘s “Back to Nature” garden recently, they had the time of their lives! In photos that were taken of the royal family, George and his siblings were seen playing around outside while their parents, Kate and Prince William, looked after them to make sure they were OK.

“George had such fun he didn’t want to leave. He loved exploring the garden and shares the same passion for nature as his grandfather [Prince] Charles,” a royal insider told Closer Weekly recently. “All the kids helped Kate and designers put the garden together. George, who is usually much quieter than Charlotte, made sure he had his say on the positioning of everything and choosing all of his favorite plants and flowers! He’s already showing the signs of being a great leader!”

Kate and William must be so proud that their son loves being around nature. According to a statement released by Kensington Palace, Kate believes that spending time outdoors can be very helpful for young people.

“In recent years I have focused much of my work on the early years, and how instrumental they are for outcomes later in life,” she explained. “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.”

Since George and his siblings live at Kensington Palace, they have tons of free space to run and play around outside. If they’re lucky they might even get to visit Kate’s “Back to Nature” garden again because it helps to “highlight the benefits of the natural world on our mental and physical wellbeing.”

Even though Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s baby boy, Archie, is still young, we can’t wait to see him go on playdates with his cousins!
