King Charles often speaks out about a sustainable future


“We really want to help the environment and keep our Earth wild, we have also planted lots of new trees in our garden.”

At the age of 21, King Charles warned about the dangerous effects of plastic pollution on the environment and has been championing sustainability ever since.

Another young supporter said: “I think you are a very good King and you care about the environment.

“Here are ways to protect the Earth that you should tell everyone about: Turn Off The Tap, Don’t Litter, Walk If You Can.”

Over the years, the King has launched several sustainability initiatives aimed at delivering practical outcomes including the Sustainable Markets Initiative.

Furthermore, in 2010 Charles wrote the book Harmony with Tony Juniper and Ian Skelly, which outlines how to create a more sustainable and balanced world.

The Royal Family receive thousands of letters each year for many different occasions including anniversaries and birthdays.

Following the King’s cancer diagnosis, Charles received over 7,000 messages of support and was photographed reading some of these cards.

Among these was a card showing a dog wearing a cone over its head saying: “At least you don’t have to wear a cone!”

Many people shared their own experiences of cancer or offered their good wishes and advice for a speedy recovery.

One adult well-wisher told the King: “Chin up, chest out, remain positive and don’t let it get you down. Trust me, it works, but the main thing is family.”

When the public has included an address, they will receive a response of thanks for their cards or letters.
