Recently, Westminster Abbey and Queen's Green Canopy revealed that Princess of Wales Kate Middleton planted wild cherry trees in Westminster Abbey's Dean's Yard. It aims to mark the memory of Queen Elizabeth II ahead of the holiday service.

In photos from the ceremony, Kate Middleton can be seen using a shovel to work dirt around the tree. It forms part of the Queen's Green Canopy, an initiative to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee, which saw more than one million trees planted across the country to honor the late Queen.

A plaque beside the tree reads, "This wild cherry tree, a gift from the Duchy of Cornwall, was dedicated in memory of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales on 14th December 2022."

For the tree-planting ceremony, Kate Middleton donned her Holland Cooper tartan double-breasted coat. He was seen wearing the same coat in the video for the Royal British Legion and the Scouts, which was released last year.

Westminster Abbey is a place that has special meaning for Kate Middleton and Queen Elizabeth. Not only is the historic church hosting Christmas carol concerts for Kate Middleton, but it is also where she married Prince William in April 2011.

Queen Elizabeth II also held her wedding at Westminster Abbey in November 1947, as well as her coronation in 1953. She returned there many times during her reign for various services and state funerals.
