'That sounds like President Trump': Queen Elizabeth on hearing a helicopter

Sir David Attenborough and the Queen team up to film documentary

During one light-hearted scene, the Queen and Attenborough are interrupted by the noise of a helicopter as they take a walk through the gardens of Buckingham Palace. "It sounds like President Trump. or President Obama", CNN quoted the Queen as saying.

However, while she was talking 91-year-old naturalist Sir David Attenborough through it, a helicopter started to circle overhead. "Can't both be", she says. Her gardening staff confirmed that, after the conversation, the sundial was indeed moved away from a clump of the 1,400 trees in the palace garden.

"Isn't it good, yes", the queen says, before flashing a wide grin at a person standing off camera. "That it was planted in the shade, it wasn't in the shade originally, I'm sure?"

The Queen's Green Planet will be broadcast on UK ITV at 9pm on Monday 16 April to coincide with the beginning of the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in London.

Hollywood star Angelina Jolie, and her six children, also feature in the ITV documentary due to be screened next Monday, and she praises the Queen for supporting the project which aims to create a network of protected Commonwealth forests around the globe.

"Why do they always go round and round when you want to talk?" she asks.

"I think she is genuinely concerned about it and interested in it, because she certainly talks about it".

The two nonagenarians appear relaxed together, with little of the formality and rigid deference often seen in people addressing the monarch.

"You know, I've been quite hard to give presents to, so", she says, drawing laughter from Attenborough.

At one point, the pair discuss the creation of a canopy of trees across the Commonwealth to mark her reign.
