Prince George is the impetus for Prince Charles to continue his campaign for the environment. HRH discussed how the newest member of the Royal Family is the reason for his unrelenting pursuit of environmental causes.
This is after the speech last week to conference of pension fund managers in which he stated that their heirs will face “an exceptionally miserable future” if the businesses ignored adapting to change to meet the rising older population and the impact on the environment, according to the Telegraph.
In a profile in Time magazine to honour his upcoming 65th birthday, The Prince of Wales, interviewed by Time’s British editor-at-large, Catherine Mayer discussed that Prince George “is what this is all about”, in reference to his battles to protect the rainforests and the efforts to creating an environmentally viable future.
HRH continued “It’s everybody else’s grandchildren I’ve been bothering about, but the trouble is if you take that long a view, people don’t always know what you’re on about.”
“We’re busily wrecking the chances for future generations at a rapid rate of knots by not recognizing the damage we’re doing to the natural environment, bearing in mind that this is the only planet that we know has any life on it,” HRH concluded.
A dinner invitation was extended to Mayer during her time spent with HRH. A benefit held at Dumfries House, the 18th century Scottish manor which HRH actually saved from being sold in 2007.
“As its 26 clocks strike 10 pm, the Prince begins the task of extracting his sociable wife from a clutch of talkative guests. He’ll spend another two hours preparing for the next day’s early start and typically packed schedule of meetings,” Mayer wrote.
Many believe that HRH is more contented then he has ever been.
“He is both ahead and behind his time. He’s not of his time. He’s bigger than the media will make space for.” The former chief rabbi, Jonathan Sacks, says of HRH.
