A landmark documentary about The Queen's Commonwealth Canopy

The Queen’s Green Planet airs on ITV on Monday 16th April at 9pm in the UK

Featuring a unique conversation between The Queen and Sir David Attenborough as they walked in the garden at Buckingham Palace last summer, a new landmark documentary from ITV will explore the ambition of a remarkable new initiative – a vast network of native forests across Britain and the Commonwealth, protected forever in The Queen’s name. The documentary from ITN Productions follows the progress of The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy, the conservation project aimed at raising awareness of the value of indigenous forests, and of preserving them for future generations.

At the centre of this landmark documentary is the conversation between Her Majesty The Queen and Sir David Attenborough in which they discuss trees, nature and conservation and the ambition of The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy.
