Prince Charles reveals his major fear for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby
Prince Charles has been very committed towards conservation and the environment and expressed that he is scared about the world we are going to bequeath our future generations
Prince Charles is very excited to become a grandfather for the fourth time but is quite worried about the kind of world that the child will inherit.
Charles has been very committed towards conservation and the environment throughout his life and while making a speech during his visit to Ghana recently, he spoke of Meghan and Harry's child and how the new generation is going to be affected by the current pollution in the world.
According to the Telegraph, 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."
"All grandchildren deserve a better future," Charles added. Prince Charles will be celebrating his 70th birthday later this month and centered his speech on plastic and also the need to find creative and alternative ways to reduce waste.
"A good start has been made. The matter of plastic debris in the environment, in particular the ocean, is now on the agenda. We do, however, need to keep it there as the amount of plastic entering the ocean every year is, unbelievably, set to get worse rather than better. We cannot, indeed must not, allow this situation to continue," Prince Charles shared.
"A solution is achievable and simply has to be done for all our sakes – and, above all, for the long-term viability of all those species in the sea which are already suffering unbearably because of our actions," he continued.
Last month while on a tour of whiskey distillery Royal Lochnagar in Scotland, he was asked whether he had toasted to the news that his younger son was having a baby to which he responded saying, "Oh yes, absolutely. Several times."
Prince Charles also shared a tribute to his grandchildren in a video that was released on social media, which was the official family portrait from Prince Louis' christening which took place in July. The family portrait featured Prince Louis, Princess Charlotte, and Prince George.
In an upcoming documentary titled 'Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70', Charles speaks about a special present that he had planted for his first grandson Prince George just after he was born in 2013. While gesturing to trees in his Scottish home of Birkhall, he says, "This is George’s wood. As I get older, all I really long for is to plant trees. I hope it will be quite amusing for George, as they grow up, and he grows up."
