In a special initiative to mark her Platinum Jubilee, the Prince and Queen of Wales planted a Balmoral Castle tree.

Charles laughed as they put soil around the copperbeech sapling. “Let’s hope it will survive.”

The move marks the start of the planting season for a scheme called the Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC), created to mark 70 years’ service to the nation.

Local schoolchildren joined Charles and the Queen for tree-planting (Andrew Milligan/PA).(PA Wire).

The Queen will be the first British monarch who celebrates the milestone next year. She was 25 when she ascended to the throne in 1952.
