On Saturday, June 2, the world’s attention will turn to Buckingham Palace, where Queen Elizabeth II will celebrate her Diamond Jubilee. Her firstborn son, Charles, The Prince of Wales, will not be throwing a big party, but he is also celebrating a noteworthy occasion — 60 years of being the heir apparent — the longest time anyone has waited to become king. While that sounds like a career buzz-kill, in fact, H.R.H. The Prince of Wales has used his unique position to become sovereign and chief spokesperson of a much larger realm — Earth. History will surely remember Prince Charles as Nature’s King, and if he has his way, each one of us will join in on the sustainable revolution that is needed to save humanity from what he calls “a collapse of catastrophic proportions.”
In his book, Harmony, H.R.H. The Prince of Wales writes,
“The Earth’s alarm bells are now ringing loudly and so we cannot go on endlessly prevaricating by finding one skeptical excuse after another for avoiding the need for the human race to act in a more environmentally benign way — which really means only one thing: putting Nature back at the heart of our considerations once more.”
His devotion to sustainability and nature is not just lip service or some new public relations stunt designed to make the heir to the British throne more People friendly. Harmony and respect for nature is the soul and inspiration of Highgrove, H.R.H. The Prince of Wales' private home, and has been since The Duchy of Cornwall first purchased the estate in 1980.
