It's not often that we get to read essays written personally by royals. But Prince Charles just wrote a rare piece that was published in The Daily Mail. Wondering what the Prince of Wales discussed in his article? Climate change.
A snippet from the essay was shared on the Clarence House Instagram account, where they said, “The Prince of Wales has written an article for the Daily Mail on the increase in extreme weather events, as a result of climate change.” More specifically, the piece discusses the wildfires that are burning throughout Greece, Turkey and Italy.
In the included excerpt, His Royal Highness illustrates some of these natural disasters, saying, “It has been truly the stuff of nightmares to see the once blue skies above the Peloponnese, Attica and the island of Evia turn a bright orange as mile after mile of the country’s famed landscape and over 100,000 hectares of forest and farmland have been swallowed up by ferocious flames, causing the tragic loss of life, injury and the wide-spread destruction of so many peoples’ homes and livelihoods.”
