Camfed garden wins Gold at Chelsea Flower Show

Meghan and Harry are huge supporters of the organization Camfed which works to alleviate poverty and works to empower girls in developing countries through education. Camfed was one of charities that Meghan and Harry's fans picked to receive donations in lieu of baby gifts as part of a "global baby shower" that was organised prior to baby Archie's birth. 

Whilst Meghan and Harry did not as far as we know participate in the garden's design they are said to have been very supportive of the garden.

According to reports, the garden's designer Jilyayne Rickards based her garden on the true story of a girl named Beauty, from rural Zimbabwe, whose parents died when she was 14. As the eldest in the family, she was left to raise her six siblings. 

The plantings in the garden and red soil were chosen to replicate the look of Zimbabwe’s ground and signify the work that Beauty had to do to help to feed her family.
