The new Prince of Wales is starting to make the title his own as he sets his new priorities.
Prince William has “doubled down” on his commitment to a cause close to his late grandmother’s heart – the environment.
The Prince of Wales was due to attend the first Earthshot Prize Innovation Summit but had to cancel due to the unexpected death of Elizabeth II.
In a video address to the summit, he said: “During this time of grief, I am so heartened by your continued enthusiasm, optimism and commitment to the Earthshot Prize and what we are trying to achieve.
Protecting the environment was a cause close to my grandmother’s heart, and I know she would have been thrilled to hear about this event and the support you all give to our Earthshot finalists, the next generation. environmental pioneers.
Commenting on Prince William’s unwavering commitment to the environment, Earthshot CEO Hannah Jones told Town and Country: “His role continues to be what it always has been, namely that of defender of the environment for future generations.
“The Royal Family is thinking about many generations ahead, which in a world of short-termism is a refreshing and incredibly important space to occupy. I think, if anything, their commitment doubles.”
