Lights At The Buckingham Palace Go Out As The Queen Joins The Earth Hour 2018
On Saturday, 24 March, at 8:30 pm, the World Earth Hour has started. The first country to take part in the celebration of the greatest gift our society has been granted was Samoa. Lots of countries, cities, establishments, famous people, and schoolchildren have decided to join the initiative. They switched off the lights for an hour to help the Earth do its daily work.

Queen Elizabeth wasn’t an exception, and she was among those who took part in the Earth Hour. The lights at the Buckingham Palace were off at 20:30 on Saturday. The royal family’s residence was among other landmarks on the map of the world who joined the initiative to drive people’s attention to global warming and the need to save energy.

Apart from the Buckingham Palace, the Eiffel Tower, Moscow's Red Square, and The Sydney Opera House didn’t hesitate to join 2018 Earth Hour and switched off their lights to make people think and realized their responsibility for the planet.
If you missed Earth Hour, make up for it by switching off for an hour when it suits you. Or right now. https://t.co/M9iONac8BX
