Prince Harry has said the world is now facing environmental calamity.
“We are literally driving ourselves to extinction,” he warned.
The Duke of Sussex’s prediction echoed the words of the Prince of Wales, his father, who has said the world needs to act quickly to stop climate change.
“I think, for me, it’s just as personal as it should be for everybody else,” said the duke in Malawi.
“There shouldn’t be any one person or a group of people that are focusing on conservation… it’s a global issue now.
“I think we need to appreciate that we are the one problem and we need to be able to fix it.
“Everything is in balance. We’re the only thing that’s putting everything out of balance. Somehow we have to be able to accept and learn and appreciate what already exists rather than destroying it and then realising we need to then recover from it.”
Prince Charles has also spent decades raising the environmental problem and climate change. It seemed much of his interest has influenced the Duke of Sussex.
“We are literally driving ourselves to extinction. I know people have said that before and it seems to be a bit of a narrative that’s being covered across the globe at the moment,” Harry added.
He has been stressing the importance of trees by guest editing National Geographic’s Instagram account.
“I think it’s becoming more and more obvious that ecosystems across the world are under massive threat, and I think for too long there’s been a part or a group of people that have said, ‘oh, you just want to protect those trees because they’re pretty or because they have some sort of purpose’,” he added.
“But what is the purpose? The purpose is vast, for every single one of us, as I’ve said we need to appreciate what already exists.
“Everything has a purpose, we need to make sure that we have a purpose in that whole system.”
