The Queen Just Revealed How Mischievous Prince George and Princess Charlotte Really Are
Christmas for the
The Queen has given a small insight into how she and her family celebrate Christmas in an upcoming ITV documentary with Sir David Attenborough about nature conversation called The Queen's Green Planet.
Her Majesty has revealed how her youngest great-grandchildren Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Mia Tindall love to help decorate the Christmas tree and knock the decorations off even more.
While speaking with
When Turner tells Her Majesty he painstakingly decorated the tree, the monarch says: "Yes, that is always the problem, is the children love knocking those [decorations] off."
"Well my great-grandchildren do, anyway they enjoy themselves," the Queen added. "And the great thing is to make them decorate it and they're a bit more careful. It always looks jolly."
Her Majesty and Attenborough have joined forces for the documentary which explores the Queen's Commonwealth Canopy (QCC) project, which is creating a network of forest conservation initiatives across all 53 Commonwealth countries to mark Her Majesty's lifetime's service to the Commonwealth, while preserving natural habitat for future generations.
The programme captures the pair walking through Buckingham Palace's garden last summer. The Queen also disclosed to Attenborough about the one gift she always receives, before joking that she is "difficult to buy for."
While discussing plants, the broadcaster says: "I imagine you must be given quite a lot of roses."
"I've been quite difficult to give presents to, so they've said, 'Oh, let's give her a plant,'" the 91-year-old monarch replied. Good thing the Duchess of Cambridge decided to give the Queen homemade chutney as a Christmas gift.
The Queen's Green Planet airs in the United Kingdom on ITV at 9 p.m. on Monday, April 16.
