Queen Elizabeth's secret passion for trees revealed

Sir David Attenborough and the Queen team up to film documentary

She was filmed complaining about the noise while strolling in her private garden at Buckingham Palace with British broadcaster Sir David Attenborough last June.

Surprisingly, the Queen has never met current USA president Donald Trump, reported Newsweek.

The scene is one of a number of exchanges between the pair - born a few weeks apart - that were recorded for ITV documentary the Queen's Green Planet, to be aired next Monday.

Despite the interruptions, Attenborough said it was an honour to walk and talk with the Queen.

The Queen's Green Planet details the United Kingdom monarch's concerns about the environment and focuses on the Queen's Commonwealth Canopy, a network of forest conservation initiatives.

In another instance, Attenborough points out that a sundial was incorrectly positioned in the shade, the Queen laughs and says, "Had we thought of that?" Her son Prince Charles has previously admitted to talking to plants and trees to help them grow, but recently joked that rather than taking the softly-softly approach, "now I instruct them instead". "Can't both be", she says.

Twitter users also went wild at the sight of the Queen and Attenborough chatting and making jokes. Then, after a pause, she adds with a smile: "I won't be here though".

During another light-hearted moment, the monarch spots a sapling bent over at an alarming angle, remarking: "Somebody sat on it I think, at the garden party".

"She is very unsolemn, very good at putting people at their ease", he said.

The documentary, "The Queen's Green Planet", is scheduled for broadcast on ITV on Monday.
