Those with an annual membership of the country estate and private residence of the Queen received an email offering the opportunity for 20 people to visit and work on the estate which boasts spectacular gardens and woodlands, according to the Independent.

On the morning of 26 June, the chosen volunteers will receive tuition before they are divided into teams.

The teams will then be given their responsibilities for the day spent working in the 20,000-acre garden.

Those who choose to volunteer will help maintain some of the Queen's "vital" tasks in the grounds, and gain knowledge on "weed identification" in the process.

The first volunteers will get started on 25 June and must be available to work from 9am to 3.30pm.

Applicants are being asked to bring gloves, sunscreen, and a water bottle on the day.

The email sent to the membership reads: “We would like to invite 20 of you, our members, to participate in the first of our volunteering days.

“The gardening team at Sandringham would like to invite anyone with an interest in gardening to a hands-on volunteer day.

“You’ll learn a little bit about weed identification, followed by methods to use for the management of plants growing in the wrong place.

“The day is designed to be interactive with a chance for you to help and be involved in vital work that’s needed to care for the spectacular landscape at Sandringham.”
