Queen jokes about 'bird's nest' flower crown at Balmoral

The Queen and Prince Charles have met with local schoolchildren at Balmoral, where they were shown tree measuring activities and admired some hand-crafted flower crowns. As children showed off their woodland headpieces, Her Majesty joked: "It looks awfully uncomfortable … like a bird's nest!" The Queen and the Prince of Wales also planted a tree to mark the start of the planting season for The Queen's Green Canopy.
