Prince Charles is getting closer to the British throne and to reaching a new milestone in his life. The Queen’s eldest son is turning 70 this week, and in order to celebrate such a marvelous occasion, the BBC released a new documentary about the future King of Britain, titled Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70.
In the documentary, Charles talks about what kind of King he will be saying he won’t be doing things he can do now as an heir when he becomes the sovereign. He said:
Clearly I won’t be able to do the same things I’ve done you know as heir.
However, we can be sure he will be loyal to one of his biggest passions in life – protecting the environment. This topic, according to Prince Harry, makes him so emotional he even gets angry at the dinner table.
The passionate royal
Speaking about his dad in the documentary, Prince Harry revealed that he is very worried about environmental issues and the fact that there isn’t much done concerning climate change and air pollution.
He said that Prince Charles gets so angry about the global inaction that he can’t hold his emotions at the dinner table:
You know how frustrated he gets, when we’re sitting down at dinner and we sit there and speak to him and he gets so frustrated. You can understand why he gets frustrated because when you’ve been banging the drum for this long and still no-one listens, when you care that much, was it too soon?
The ginger royal continues by saying that Charles has been passionate about this issue even before people recognized climate change as a problem. Prince William backs his brother up by stating that people don’t like to hear about this problem but we’ve got to change our perception of it.
The nature lover
Prince Charles has always been advocating for life in harmony with nature to preserve it for our successors. He said in his interview with the BBC:
We need to think about what kind of world we're handing on to our successors, particularly grandchildren.
The royal says we should be respectful of nature because it’s much more powerful than we are. We couldn’t agree more, and we hope he’ll make some changes in this area when he becomes the King.
