‘Hope he appreciates it!’ says Prince Charles of his wonderfully nice gesture to Prince George.
PRINCE CHARLES has paid a heartfelt tribute to his eldest grandchild Prince George, according to the BBC.
During an interview with the BBC on the Balmoral estate, Prince Charles disclosed the touching act. The Prince of Wales revealed one of his environmental projects at the Queen’s Scottish retreat was inspired by his eldest grandchild Prince George. In the run-up to the Cop26 Summit in Glasgow next month, which the heir to the throne will attend alongside Her Majesty, Prince William, and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, the royal was expressing his ambitions for Britain’s environmental future.
In the garden of his house on the Balmoral estate, Prince Charles spoke to the BBC.
“This was a very empty field that the farm didn’t need anymore,” Charles explained.
“The best part was that I was able to plant it the same year that my eldest grandson, George, was born.”
“As a result, I decided to call it Prince George’s Wood.”
“All of our descendants, if we’re lucky enough to have them, will inherit the earth that we bequeath them,” climate editor Justin Rowlatt responded.
“Are you concerned about the state of your inheritance?”
“I’m very concerned,” Charles added.
“I’ve always had the impression that we’ve been socialized to believe that nature is a different entity from us that we can just abuse.”
Mr Rowlatt expressed his excitement at being able to visit Prince George’s Woods at the end of the interview, to which the Prince of Wales answered, “I only hope he appreciates it one day.”
The Prince created Terra Carta, a corporate sustainability treaty, earlier this year.
The initiative is a “economic recovery plan” in which businesses are asked to donate $10 million to long-term investment.
During his virtual opening for the One Planet Summit in January, Obama discussed the plan.
The Royal Family is considered a strong contender in the climate debate.
“Prince Charles, and increasingly Prince William, have demonstrated a special interest in this area,” Bob Ward, a spokesman for the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at the London School of Economics, told the Daily Telegraph.
“Prince Charles is unmistakably known around the world as a deep thinker on these topics and as someone who has been interested in them for a long, long time.”
“It’s not just the symbolism — they’re folks who know what they’re talking about.”
Prince William is expected to do so. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
