Thanks to the poor economy and the rising costs of energy, even the Queen of England has to go green (sort of)!
The Royal Family's heating bill was $3.5 million last year and is only expected to rise by 20% this year, but their homes aren't the only thing freezing. The British government has FROZEN the Royal budget, so the Queen is now faced with the task of saving energy!
On top of roaming the halls of Buckingham Palace to shut off unnecessary lights herself, signs have been posted, reading:
"The attention is drawn of all members of staff to the need to switch off unwanted lights."
Check out the video above for the rest of the details on the Queen's quest to save energy!
