Prince Charles mentioned his eight-year-old grandson Prince George in a clip launching the film ‘COP26: In Your Hands’. The Prince of Wales said how the eldest son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is learning about climate change and the devastating impact it is having on the planet.  

In the video, released today as the 30-minute-long Sky film debuts, the Prince of Wales is seen holding a glowing globe representing planet Earth. 

He said: “I am old enough to have a grandson.

“Like you, he is learning how climate change is causing the big storms, and floods, droughts, fires and food shortages we have seen around the world.” 

In the brief video, Prince Charles also speaks about how he came to realise as a young adult humanity was putting too much pressure on the planet.  

Mentioning his five-decade-long commitment to the environmental cause, he said: “When I was his age, people had no idea about the damage we were doing.

“But by the time I was a teenager, I started to see that if we didn’t stop polluting our planet, we would face a very dangerous future indeed.

“This is why I’ve spent so much of my life trying to warn that we have to operate in ways which can make nature thrive, not suffer.

“We have forgotten that we have to put back into nature as much as we take out – and you have an important part to play in this.”  

Introducing the film, available on Sky News, Sky Kids and Now, he added: “That’s why I am delighted that in this film we will be hearing from six young climate activists from six different continents who have all seen the impact of climate change where they live and have ideas about what needs to be done to help the planet become healthy again.

“Their voices matter, and so does yours.

“Your future depends upon the future of the planet.”
