Prince Charles has told of his pride for William over his “bold ambition” on the environment as it emerged that his son has had an electric car charger installed at Kensington Palace.
The Duke of Cambridge has spoken publicly about the need to tackle global warming and set up the Earthshot Prize for solutions to environmental change.
He also criticised the way billionaires like Jeff Bezos are opening up space travel in private ventures, saying that problems on Earth needed to be sorted out first.
Charles has now come out to back William on his environmental work in a statement saying he is “very proud” of him ahead of the Earthshot Prize ceremony.
He also talked of William’s “bold ambition”.
Charles said: “As a world, we need to come together to inspire, reimagine and build the sustainable future we so desperately need.
“Over the coming decade, with future generations in mind, the Earthshot Prize, and its inspirational nominees, will help us find the innovative solutions.”
It comes as William has had an electric car charging point installed at Kensington Palace, the Mail on Sunday reports, with a source stating that it was the “first phase” of a plan to have charging points around the whole of the estate.
William is hosting the Earthshot Prize ceremony on Sunday night where five environmental entrepreneurs will be given £1 million each to develop their projects.
The Duke of Cambridge held a Instagram question and answer session on Friday where he gave his opinion on environmental issues.
He said his motivation for the Earthshot prize was for his “children’s future to be better than what we currently have.”
Meanwhile, Charles has also launched an initiative, called Terra Carta/Sustainable Markets with the plan of pumping trillions of pounds into helping businesses become more environmentally friendly.
He also has revealed that his classic Aston Martin has now been converted to running surplus wine and whey from cheese.
