The Prince of Wales, 72, will join world leaders at the United Nations climate change summit in Scotland’s largest city next month. But in a broad interview with Justin Rowlatt, the BBC’s climate editor, Prince Charles was asked what the ‘reluctant’ Australian government of Scott Morrison can do to protect the environment.
The prince then said that “it is a last chance saloon” to save the planet.

The Prince of Wales will be joined in Glasgow by the Queen, 95, Prince William, 39, and Kate Middleton, 39.
Following Charles’ speech on climate change, former Brexit party leader Nigel Farage has come out to warn the prince that he should ‘stay out’ of active politics.

“It’s just that I have a lot of respect for the constitutional monarchy, if it’s not broken I don’t see the need to fix it, but I respect all Australian views on it, and I can’t wait to see [the Royals]. »
