Dendrophilia clearly runs in the royal family. Her son Prince Charles has previously admitted to talking to plants and trees to help them grow, but recently joked that rather than taking the softly-softly approach, "now I instruct them instead".

Treays said the chemistry between the Queen and Attenborough, who are the same age and were born within three weeks of each other, helped her open up.

"It was a lovely hot summer's day... They laughed and were quite playful with each other. They have known each other a long time and because of that we see quite surprising things," she added.

In one hilarious moment, the Queen reveals that her huge collection of new varieties of plants came from people who were unsure of what to get her.

"I've been quite difficult to give presents to," she quipped, "so they've said, 'Oh, let's give her a plant'."

And her dry humour was also clear when she talked about a mulberry tree planted in the early 1600s by James I in a failed attempt to get a royal silk industry going.

"They chose the wrong variety and so the silk worms didn't produce anything, which was a great disappointment to him I believe," the Queen said.

The Queen's last corgi has died .
To this day, the monarch is believed to feed and walk her dogs herself and is extremely particular about their diet, as royal biographer Brian Hoey revealed in his book Pets by Royal Appointment. There is no canned food in sight – the corgis dined on fillet steak and chicken breast specially prepared by a Buckingham Palace chef.At 5pm sharp, a footman delivers the meals to the Queen, who adds the finishing touches herself, pouring gravy over the steak or chicken.Hoey says the corgis were so pampered the Queen even hires a homeopath to treat them whenever they are ill.
