'Let’s hope it will survive' - Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles get digging as they plant tree together

The Queen and the Prince of Wales have planted a tree at Balmoral Castle as part of a special initiative marking her Platinum Jubilee. As they poured soil around the copper beech sapling, Charles quipped: “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 her 70 years’ service to the nation.
