Introducing The Queen's Green Planet.

The unique documentary will see Sir David Attenborough join Queen Elizabeth II in the gardens of Buckingham Palace to informally explore the trees in her gardens, but also to discuss her new project, creating a global network of protected forests, spanning the 52 countries of the Commonwealth - or as it is known, the Queen's Commonwealth Canopy.

Planting trees is often on the itinerary during a royal visit, although these days the Queen is more likely to send Princes William and Harry along to do the honours.

"She's just this really lovely lady who really cares about people around the world, and she really cares about the future, and she wants your grandkids and her grandkids to be able to be running around, enjoying nature and other cultures, '" says Jolie.

She also jokes about President Trump flying overhead after the pair have to break their conversation because of helicopter noise overhead.

The Queen and David Attenborough's friendship: The Queen and David Attenborough have known each other for a long time, so their conversation flows easily and we get to see the Queen in a new, informal light.

That's the hope of the broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough who spoke to the Monarch at length in the gardens of Buckingham Palace. One particularly sweet moment between the two sees the Queen telling Sir David not to look at one particular sapling. "She thinks that really matters, and I agree with her".

The Queen's Green Planet airs on ITV tonight at 9pm.
