Royal Family News: Harry Has Passionately Highlighted the Impact of Climate Change
In a Newsweek exclusive Charles wrote, “As a father, I am proud that my sons have recognized this threat.” He went on to first praise his son William, writing that he had launched the “Earth shot Prize to incentivize change and help repair our planet over the next ten years by identifying and investing in the technologies that can make a difference.”
The prince didn’t leave out his youngest son, Prince Harry, writing, “Harry, has passionately highlighted the impact of climate change, especially in relation to Africa, and committed his charity to be net-zero.”
Conversely, the Queen twice showered praise of Phillip, William, and Charles for their work on climate change while failing to acknowledge Harry’s contributions. “I could not be more proud of them.”
Not to be distracted, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan announced that their Archewell Foundation had set a target to be “net-zero” by 2030 the following day. This, of course, was one of the efforts Prince Charles was referencing in the essay for Newsweek.
Royal Family News: The Queen Snubs Harry Again While Charles Doubles Down
In the Queen’s Christmas Day message, she heaped praise on Charles and William acknowledging that they had the support of their wives Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, and Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge. Once again, there was no mention of Harry from the Queen as she made her emotional speech honoring her late husband, Prince Phillip.
Charles’s warm words came despite his son Harry having accused him, in a March 2021 Oprah interview, of cutting him off financially in the summer of 2020. Harry also described how his father had stopped taking his calls as he tried to navigate his departure from the Royal Family.
For his part, Charles acknowledged all of his son’s work on climate change and indicated that now wasn’t the time for denying any of them saying, “The time is now. 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.”
