The snow in Russia was a big factor. It was hard for Napoleon to mobilize his forces through all of the snow. His forces were also unprepared for the weather conditions. Along with this they faced fevers and colds which put even more of a damper on his forces.

The English Channel was also a big factor in Napoleon's conquests. It would have been an unwise move to send troops across the English Channel when the British had one of the most superior naval forces of their time. Sending the troops to Britain would have been a waste of his forces.

What natural factors prevented Napoleon from conquering Russia and the United Kingdom?

The severity of the Russian winter. Plus the mass gathering of French soldiers in an adandoned Moscow inevitably resulted in ill-discipline, and ultimately the Moscow fire. As Napoleon was committed to sending so many soldiers to the East, and Britain's naval power was so immense, there was no real prospect of mounting a meaningful invasion of Britain. 'The natural' obstacle being the English Channel - although considerable British effort was spent in building shore defenses at the very beginning of the C19th (prior to the 'main' Russian conflict). Note also the difficulties of maintaining supply lines to the vast armies associated with Napoleonic warfare.
