Prince Charles recently shared how delighted he was with his sons Prince William and Prince Harry for launching their initiatives to save the planet, highlighting their efforts in an essay for America's News Week Magazine. 

The 73-year-old father wrote that he is pleased that his sons recognised the threat of climate change and took action.

He added that recently William launched the prestigious Earthshot Prize to incentivise change and help repair the planet in the next 10 years by identifying and investing in the technologies that can make a difference.

While, his youngest son Harry passionately highlighted the impact of climate change, especially in relation to Africa, and committed his charity to be net-zero.

The outspoken environmental campaigner also reflected on his late father, Prince Philip's efforts to help the planet by founding the World Wildlife Fund.

Prince Charles also warned that the time is now when it comes to taking action against climate change.

"The eyes of our children and grandchildren are judging us. Let ours be the generation that ‘can.’ And does. As we enter a new year, there is not a moment to lose," he wrote. 

This father believes that the world is on the brink and urgent action is needed.
