The Duke of Rothesay and The Queen plant a tree at Balmoral

Her Majesty The Queen and The Duke of Rothesay this morning marked the first official day of the tree planting season with children from Crathie Primary School on the Balmoral Estate.

The Queen's Green Canopy (QGC) is a UK-wide Platinum Jubilee initiative which will create a lasting legacy in tribute to The Queen’s 70 years of service to the nation, through a network of trees planted in Her Majesty’s name.

The Duke, who is Patron of the QGC, joined his mother to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee” at the Balmoral Estate’s historic cricket pavilion. The planting of the copper beech tree coincides with schools, community groups, families and individuals starting their own tree planting projects across the country.
