This comes after when some of the kids told her that they were growing sunflowers at school, she indulged in a conversation with them and replied, "They get so big, don’t they?"

She went on to spill the beans, "Louis is growing broad beans at school. You put them in a cup and you can see the roots growing." 

"They get big quickly, like sunflowers."

The young royal does have many interests from sports to cooking with his siblings but as his mum disclosed, he has a newfound interest in planting, just like her and King Charles.

Princess Kate, widely known for her love for gardening, attended a show in 2019 with her youngest kid and he helped his mother by giving some finishing touches to a garden she co-designed for some event.

Meanwhile, King Charles’ love for horticulture is not unknown to others.
