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?”

    She sounds so much like my Grandfather Boydstun. Both he and my Grandmother were motherless by age 8 both from large family with only there fathers to raise them. He was alway determine to work in his garden even though he could not get around without his walker. His legs were worn out due to walking a rural postal route for years, in the days of horse and buggy. He died in 1970 long before the age of modern medicine and knee surgery. These people come from different stock than the youth of today. Life was hard from the beginning and they learned early perseverance is the key to life. One of my favorite quotes, “There is no normal life, there is just life.” Doc Holliday 1851-1887
