Prince Charles shows signs of being a ‘tyrant’ king says expert
The Duke of Sussex has been an outspoken advocate for climate issues and was appointed the head of Africa Parks, a conservation group. And now he has warned the world must be a “united coalition” to stop “destructive” human density.
In the foreword of the The Re-emergence of Travel report by Travalyst, Harry opened up about his fears for the future generations due to climate change.
He wrote: “As the industry re-emerges from crisis, there is an urgent need to reset and reimagine.
“Over the past year, society has seen what happens when travel disappears.
“In places where the natural world and human activity had not been working in harmony, we have seen a temporary halt to destructive and high-density human activity.

“From communities and destinations, to industry leaders and experts, we must take on the task before us as a united front.
“As a united coalition. Together, we have a responsibility — and opportunity — to rebuild for a more sustainable and equitable future; one our world needs, our children deserve, and where generations not-yet-born can continue to explore and enjoy the beauty and benefit of this home we share.”
The report explored the options available to the tourism industry in the year ahead, and how we might collectively build a more sustainable and balanced future.
Despite being an advocate for climate change, the Duke and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, have been criticised in the past for using private jets to travel while openly talking about climate change.

Royal fans were able to watch the whole 105-minute BBC programme on YouTube for the first time since it was withdrawn in the early 1970s.
