‘Pompous, privileged peanuts!’ exclaims the Australian host as Prince Charles is viciously burned.
PRINCE After telling the BBC that his favorite Aston Martin ran on fermented wine and cheese, Charles was teased by two Australian hosts.
Prince Charles disclosed his own attempts to tackle the climate catastrophe in a recent interview with the BBC, including filling his 50-year-old Aston Martin with wine and cheese rather than gasoline. Two Australian TV broadcasters criticized the future king for his decision to fill his pricey, historic car with biofuel, calling him “pompous.” Prior to the COP26 climate change meeting in Glasgow in November, the Prince of Wales gave a wide-ranging interview to the BBC.
Karl Stefanovic, anchor of the Today Show, joked: “Charles disclosed how he keeps in touch with the regular people when it comes to everyday motoring a little later in that conversation.
“Prince Charles’ Aston Martin is fuelled by wine and cheese – he’s a people’s man!”
He further derided Prince Charles’ claim that he was “giving back to the environment” by taking this move.
“He’s relatable,” co-host Alex Cullen added. “Is that what you’re going to attempt to tell me?”
With a wine-and-cheese-fueled Aston Martin? Peanuts who are haughty and privileged. Can you think he’ll be the next president of the United States?” Prince Charles revealed his cherished Aston Martin when asked about his efforts to lessen his own carbon footprint.
He claimed that he had adapted his favorite vehicle to run on “surplus English white wine and whey from the cheese process,” which he defined as “surplus English white wine and whey from the cheese process.”
It has been adapted to run on E85, a fuel made up of 85 percent bioethanol and 15 percent unleaded gasoline. Bioethanol can be made from a variety of sources, including fermented alcoholic beverages.
He also revealed that the heating at Birkhall had been switched to biomass boilers, and that solar panels had been put at both Clarence House and his Gloucestershire estate, Highgrove.
Prince Charles talked to the BBC from the gardens of his Balmoral home, where he warned of “catastrophic” consequences if more bold climate action is not implemented.
The future king will attend the COP26 climate meeting in Glasgow next month alongside the Queen and other senior royals, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The 12-day conference has been dubbed “the most important meeting of the century.” “Brinkwire News Summary.”
