She may be one of the most famous Hollywood film stars, but Angelina Jolie is also known for the dedication she puts in to raising her children and teaching them about the world around them.
And her latest TV project and ITV documentary called ‘The Queen’s Green Planet’ sees the mother of six visit Namibia with her children to explore forest conservation in Namibia.
The documentary also features The Queen herself as she chats with TV legend Sir David Attenborough.
It is aimed at raising awareness for ‘The Queen’s Canopy’, an environmental project set out to unite all the countries of the Commonwealth in conservation efforts.
As reported in People Royals 42-year-old Jolie explains in the documentary how her children have asked her why the Queen of England is so interested in planting trees in Africa.
She explains how she tells them “You know really, you don’t know her, you can’t understand all that it means to be a Queen and all that.”
Angelina explains how she tries to tell her young family in the simplest way, “You know she’s just this really lovely lady who really cares about people around the world, and she really cares about the future.
“She wants your grandkids and her grandkids to be able to be running around, enjoying nature and other cultures, and the importance of other cultures.
“She thinks that really matters and I agree with her.”
And it would appear that the Oscar-winners children really take on board The Queen’s message as the documentary shows them “trying their best to dig a hole.”
As Jolie watches on she says “I bet they’re fighting over the biggest shovel.
“It says it all when you see the local tribe, the bushmen come in and their reaction to it. The trees affect the environment, the soil, the shade, the natural resources, the animals, the ecosystem.”
“But they also affect the local cultures. They live very dependent on every single plant and they use every single plant and when certain trees, certain species disappear, that effects an entire culture and there way of life and they start to die out.”
