Queen Elizabeth II has already produced one of England’s greatest eco-treasures— the royally green Prince Charles— and now she’s looking to turn the verdant gardens in Buckingham Palace into a flourishing urban oasis.

Nearly all of the plant waste in the palace’s gardens are already recycled on site. However, the Queen has recently advertised for a gardener to encourage wildlife here. If she has her way (and what Queen doesn’t?), the Rose Garden will host everything from beetles and spiders to a family of the oft-endangered woodpeckers.

Do you think she can pull this off in time for the nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton? Can you imagine how gorgeous those wedding photos would look like? No time line for the garden project has been released, so it’s up to us to guess what the the Queen has in mind.
