Prince Charles reveals his grandson George is learning about climate change

Prince Charles has revealed his eldest grandson Prince George knows all about climate change and its impact on the world, as he promotes a new documentary.

The 72 year old is appearing in the brand new one-off Sky Kids Original documentary, COP26: In Your Hands, which shows the impact of global warming all across the world.

As the Prince of Wales introduces the documentary – which also features commentary from Prime Minister Boris Johnson – he explains that his eight year old grandson has been learning all about the devastating effects of climate change.

In the clip, Charles states that George is aware that global warming is causing "the big storms, and floods, the droughts, fires and food shortages", admitting that back when he was his grandson's age "people had no idea about the damage they were doing".

He continued: "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."

COP26: In Your Hands follows six teenage environmental activists who shine a light on the horrific results of climate change.

All six contributors come from different parts of the world, there is; Darielen, aged 15 from Brazil; Hannah, 17, from the UK; Kynan, 16, from Indonesia; Queen, 17, from Cameroon; Sophia, 15, from Canada; and 16 year old Tamsyn, from Australia.

At the beginning of the 30-minute documentary, Charles speaks directly to the camera, saying: "I'm old enough to have a grandson.

"Like you he is learning how climate change is causing the big storms, and floods, the droughts, fires and food shortages we are seeing around the world," adding that "we have forgotten that we have to put back into nature as much as we take out".

Senior royal Charles, who is the first in line to the British throne, has always been passionate about the environment, and recently wrote the foreword for a brand new children's book which is all about global warming.

The Prince's Foundation has partnered with What on Earth Publishing for the new book, It’s Up to Us by Christopher Lloyd.

It will soon launch at the start of November, alongside the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP26.

Charles' incredible initiative means this book will have copies donated to every primary school in Scotland, and half of all its proceeds will go to The Prince's Foundation to support all of its charitable work.

Writing in the book's foreword, the future King penned: "Children have a unique curiosity for Nature and for this amazing planet we call home.

"All the people in the world need to do everything they can to keep Nature healthy so that people and animals can be healthy.

"This means that we need all of the world’s countries, cities, businesses and organisations to work together."

This comes ahead of the important COP26 United Nations conference for climate change, which is set to take place in Glasgow at the end of October.

Speaking about the COP26: In Our Hands documentary, Lucy Murphy, the Director of Kids Content at Sky, said: “We all have a responsibility to do what we can to help protect our planet for the next generation.

"With Sky Kids, we want to produce content that not only inspires, excites, and engages young people but also helps them learn about important issues, such as climate change.

"COP26: In Your Hands features six incredible teenagers, whose actions and words I believe will really resonate with our audiences. I hope this film inspires many to take action."
