Jessica’s design featured a twisted thorax sculpted from wood and a trellis of recycled metal in the shape of butterfly wings for brightly coloured clematis flowers to grow over.
At its centre hangs a set of wind chimes, and the first flowers have already started to grow over its wings.
The duchess launched the Royal Garden competition in June – calling for Blue Peter viewers to design a sculpture featuring natural materials for the garden she designed for the Chelsea Flower Show.
The official account of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, shared a series of snaps from the day, showing Kate looking radiant while chatting with the winner and runners up
