Proud grandpa reacts to news of the royal baby

Right after news of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby hit the web, Charles was visiting the Royal Lochnagar Distillery in the Scottish Highlands where a reporter asked him if he'd toasted to the news.

The grandpa-to-be did not even try to hide his cheeky grin when he announced, "Several times!"

He's concerned about the baby's future

But, days ago, a much more serious side to the future king and grandpa was revealed. While speaking on plastic pollution during a trip to Ghana, Charles talked about his concerns about climate change and the future.

Clearly thinking about his brand new grandchild due in the spring of 2019, he said:

I am about to have another grandchild actually. I suspect quite a few of you may too have grandchildren or will do soon. It does seem to me insanity if we are going to bequeath this completely polluted, damaged and destroyed world to them.

Climate change advocacy

The Duke of Wales and his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, are currently on a tour of West Africa and will head to Nigeria after their stop in Ghana.

Charles has been a passionate advocate against plastic pollution and climate change for decades despite being mostly ignored. He continues to highlight the problems of climate change.
