Her Maj and her spade

Anyone seen the reports Her Maj was not impressed when someone suggested they'd plant a tree on her behalf and promptly grabbed the spade and started digging herself?  I say good for her showing that old people aren't all frail and useless.  Now if I could just use her example to get my own father who's rather younger to do stuff rather than paying someone else to do it...

And there was me thinking that this was going to be a pejorative thread about the film "Victoria and Abdul".
