Twitter Reactions to the Queen's Green Planet

The Queen's Green Planet Proves That We Need to See Queen Elizabeth On TV More Often

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II (L) reacts as she talks with television presenter David Attenborough during an event at Buckingham Palace in central London on November 15, 2016, to showcase forestry projects that have been dedicated to the new conservation initiative - The Queen's Commonwealth Canopy

As soon as we saw the trailer for ITV's The Queen's Green Planet, we knew that it was going to be wonderful. The one-hour documentary celebrates the conservation work that Queen Elizabeth II is doing with her Commonwealth Canopy, a network of forest conservation projects across the Commonwealth. Joining her good friend Sir David Attenborough for a walk around the gardens of Buckingham Palace, the Queen discusses trees, giggles over an oddly-placed sundial, makes a joke about Donald Trump, and discusses the "health and safety" issues surrounding conkers. Unsurprisingly, the people of Twitter quickly got to work, plotting future TV presenting gigs for the witty nonagenarian duo, calling for old-school conker matches across the country, and delighting in the Britishness of the whole thing. Read on for some of the best reactions.
