Viewers couldn't get enough of the Queen and David Attenborough talking about trees
“This could literally be a 16 hour documentary about a dropped kebab in Grimsby and I'd still watch it. #DreamTeam”
Two national treasures came together to speak about trees, and the nation loved every second of it.
In The Queen’s Green Planet, a one-off documentary about the Queen's plans to plant a global network of forests, David Attenborough and Her Majesty took a stroll through the gardens at Buckingham Palace.

- The Queen’s Green Planet director describes what it was like working with two “kindred spirits”
- “She is very unsolemn” – David Attenborough reflects on filming with the Queen
Since the ITV special aired on Monday night, viewers have been marvelling at how enjoyable it was to simply watch two 91-year-olds getting excited about trees, and many called for a whole series of Attenborough and the Queen having a chinwag.
The Queen's Green Planet also featured contributions from Princes William and Harry, as well as Angelina Jolie, who called Her Majesty a "really lovely lady”.
