The unusual choice actually aligns with her and Prince William's kids' hobbies, as they love to grow and eat their own food.

"Each child has their own patch of Anmer garden where they grow flowers and vegetables," an insider told Fabulous, per The Sun. "They water it, weed it and photos are taken for Grandpa Charles and the Queen to peruse."

"Each Cambridge child has been gifted small gardening tools, including  trowels, rakes, shovels, small spades and mini wheelbarrows, brightly coloured watering cans, mini gardening gloves to avoid cuts and stings or totally filthy hands and nails!" added the insider.

"They are delighted with their March-planted lettuces, small cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and pick snap peas in June," continued the insider. "Strawberries do not last long — there is much instant eating when they have ripened!"

Earlier this year, Kate's mom, Carole, revealed she loves to garden with her grandchildren.

"It's important for children to grow up appreciating nature and part of that is allowing them to get a bit muddy," she noted to Saga magazine.

"If I'm doing planting with my grandchildren, I like to have it all laid out at 'activity stations' with their own little trowel and pot so they can get started immediately," she shared. "It's no good calling children over to an activity, only for you then to have to fuss about looking for the right equipment and clearing a space. They'll soon lose interest and slope off."

"Growing potatoes is a simple one to start with, and digging for spuds is fun at any age," she suggested. "We also grow carrots, beetroot and onions, and there's no better way to encourage healthy eating than to allow your grandchildren to see how food is grown and let them pick their own."
