‘You should be proud of yourself.’ On the BBC, Britons applaud Prince William’s efforts to combat climate change.
BRITAIN’S response to Prince William’s call for people to do more to combat climate change in a new BBC documentary has been overwhelmingly positive.
Prince William, 39, underlined the importance of individuals addressing climate change in a video shared by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on social media. “Our planet is currently in a state of emergency,” he declared.
“With each passing year, its delicately balanced systems become more and more unstable.
“Let us act today for the benefit of future generations.”
“It’s for this reason that I founded the Earthshot Prize, the most ambitious prize in history,” William continued.
The clip was well appreciated by Britons, who flooded the @KensingtonRoyal Twitter account with responses.
“Can’t wait!” Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (@dukeandduchessofcambridge)@RoyallyBelle_ replied to a post posted by Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (@dukeandduchessofcambridge)@RoyallyBelle_. This looks amazing! Wills, I’m very proud of you.” @heidi56alps said, “Will absolutely be watching.”
Similarly, Instagram users reacted positively to William’s post on the @dukeandduchessofcambridge account.
The 45-second video was viewed by almost 44,000 people.
“Prince William is a valuable addition to the Royal Family,” @jazzy.mam said.
“I trust you more than most politicians,” another user, using the handle @adelswelt, commented.
The film is from the BBC’s latest climate change documentary, ‘The Earthshot Prize: Repairing Our Planet.’

In the series, Prince William is joined by Sir David Attenborough, 95, a broadcaster and naturalist, as they discuss how individuals can safeguard the environment and restore nature.
The Duke’s series is divided into five episodes, each focusing on one of the five global issues selected by the Earthshot Prize.
Protecting and restoring nature, cleaning our air, rejuvenating our oceans, creating a waste-free planet, and repairing our climate are among them.
The Earthshot Prize, established by Prince William, will pay £1 million to five persons every year for the following ten years.
