The Queen plants tree for Bermuda's 400th anniversary celebration





The Queen demonstrated her gardening skills as she planted a palm tree in the grounds of Government House on the latest stage of her visit to Bermuda.

With shovel in hand the Queen, who was wearing a paisley turquoise skirt and jacket and matching hat, patted down the earth around the sapling, while officials from the building in Hamilton looked on.

The Queen first visited Bermuda in 1953, just five months after her coronation.
