Lack Of Imagination? Queen Elizabeth II Reveals The One Present That She Always Gets From People

When you hear the word "documentary," you probably think about long and boring movies that only a few people are interested in. But we can assure you that the new program The Queen's Green Planet is completely the opposite.

In it, Elizabeth II is walking through the gardens of Buckingham Palace with Sir David Attenborough. And you can see her laughing and smiling a lot, discussing modern life, complaining about health, and proving she has a wonderful sense of humor.

As part of the discussion, the monarch opens up about being difficult to give gifts to. Surely, buying a present for any woman is a hard task. So, we can only imagine the pressure heads of state and political leaders have to go through when choosing a gift for the 91-year-old.

As it turns out, people avoid presenting the Queen with something unusual and rare. Instead, she often gets one particular present.

What is it?

While discussing roses in the gardens of Buckingham Palace, the Queen admits that dignitaries often opt for the trusted gift of a plant:

I've been quite difficult to give presents to, so. Of course, they’ve said, 'Oh well let's give her a plant.'
