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.

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.
