The Platinum Jubilee – Tree Planting

June 14th marks US Flag Day as well as the birthday of the US Army.

The rain and clouds gave way to a lovely afternoon bathed in sunshine at Independence National Historic Park, Washington Square in Philadelphia.

This special ceremony was part of the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative, inviting people to “plant a tree for the Jubilee.” The Crown and all facets of British life are deeply committed to protecting our climate and sustainability. Planting a tree is a symbolic act of goodness that will ensure a brighter and greener future for all.
