Queen jokes about Trump and 'health and safety' with David Attenborough

12 April 2018

The documentary will include a rare conversation between the Queen and the iconic documentary presenter, which was filmed last summer.

News took to Twitter to post a video of an upcoming documentary with the 91-year-old Queen and Sir David Attenborough, called "The Queen's Green Planet". Then, after a pause, she adds with a smile: "I won't be here though".

The scene is one of a number of exchanges between the pair - born a few weeks apart - that were recorded for ITV documentary the Queen's Green Planet, to be aired next Monday.

The Queen was interrupted by a loud helicopter while strolling in her garden with Sir David Attenborough a year ago.

This is an ambitious project to persuade the 53 Commonwealth nations to each create an area of protected forest to mark the monarch's extraordinary reign and her legacy as head of the organisation of mainly former British Empire countries.

But the laughs don't stop there with Sir David pointing out a sundial incorrectly positioned in the shade. It wasn't in the shade originally, I'm sure.

"The Queen certainly knows what's going on and certainly knows what's going on in the world of conservation".

"She is very unsolemn, very good at putting people at their ease", he said.

"The Queen's Green Planet" will be broadcast in the United Kingdom on ITV at 9 p.m. on April 16. "Somebody sat on it, I think at a garden party", she said.

"It was very lovely and touching to see how she relates to them, and how much they mean to her".

The queen and Attenborough have known each other for many years as the broadcaster, who has been making nature programmes since the 1950s and continues to draw millions of viewers with every new one, has received a series of royal honors over the years.
