The Queen has told onlookers she is “still perfectly capable of planting a tree” at the age of 93.

Her Majesty made the comment during a visit to the National Institute of Agricultural Botany in Cambridge.

The article goes on to state the following:

She surprised people at the institute by taking a shovel and digging into the earth as she planted a tree.

The institute’s chief executive Dr Tina Barsby said: “On the rehearsal, the idea was that she would supervise the planting of a tree.

“But she gave her bag to someone to hold and said ‘I’m still perfectly capable of planting a tree’ and she put the soil in herself.”

The NAIB tweeted, “We’re so impressed with The Queen’s efforts with a spade, that there is always a job going for her with our trials team! 🙂 Queen of spades, anyone?”
