MY DUTY IS TO SAVE THE WORLD: PRINCE CHARLES BELIEVES HE WAS BORN FOR A
By Fay Schlesinger
July 30, 2010
The Prince of Wales says he believes he has been placed on Earth as future
King for a purpose¹ -- to save the world.
Giving a fascinating insight into his view of his inherited wealth and
influence, he said: I can only somehow imagine that I find myself being
born into this position for a purpose.
I don¹t want my grandchildren or yours to come along and say to me, ³Why
the hell didn¹t you come and do something about this? You knew what the
problem was². That is what motivates me.
I wanted to express something in the outer world that I feel inside... We
seem to have lost that understanding of the whole of nature and the universe
as a living entity.¹
Green champion: Prince Charles, a long-term committed supporter of the
environment, says the modern world has lost the understanding of nature
His impassioned comments come during a film about his belief that unbridled
commerce has led to the destruction of farmland and countryside.
The documentary, called Harmony, is due to be aired on the U.S. network NBC
in November to coincide with the launch of a book of the same name by the
Charles is understood to have waived his author¹s fee, and all royalties
will go to his charity, the Prince¹s Trust.
But the Prince has previously come under fire for hypocrisy over his
Last year he commandeered a jet belonging to the Queen¹s Flight to attend
the Copenhagen climate change summit, generating an estimated 6.4 tons of
carbon dioxide -- 5.2 tons more than if he had used a commercial plane.
Critics condemned his words as delusional¹.
Graham Smith, of the anti-monarchy group Republic, said: He is under the
impression he has been sent to save the world and deliver us from our sins.
It¹s quite delusional.
He will have to be impartial and keep his mouth shut when he¹s king. If he
really believes this is his mission and he disagrees with Government in
future, he risks plunging us into a constitutional crisis.¹
Senior royal aides denied the prince was attempting to mould his public
image and pave the way to ensure a positive legacy.
They stressed Charles also cared passionately about his other royal duties,
such as defence.
One said: In private he has dismissed talk of legacies - that¹s not for him
to say because it¹s for others to judge. But hopefully his charities will
carry on for many years to come.
He has said there is a reason why he¹s in a position to raise these issues
-- that there is some higher power. But there is more to his role than just
It¹s true that outside royal duties, the environment is the thing he cares
most passionately about.¹
In a trailer to the film, the prince spoke passionately about his
decades-long quest for what he described in a statement as a sacred duty of
stewardship of the natural order of things¹.
He said: I started 22 years ago on something that nobody really wanted to
know about except a few people who thought it was pretty crazy.
The way nature presents itself -- we¹ve turned it into merely a mechanical
What is happening to the small farmers around the world is simply
appalling, as a result of globalisation. Is that really the intention behind
it all, just to sweep all these people off the land?¹
An Asian woman, who is not named in the documentary, piled praise on the
royal, saying: Princes Charles has been a very courageous man because he
has never thought through the throne he will occupy -- he has thought
through the planet he lives on.¹
