Prince Charles has made some very rare comments about his sons, Prince William and Prince Harry as he writes an exclusive essay for American publication, Newsweek.

The Prince of Wales will be covering the January issue of the magazine where he sets out his plans to combat climate change. During the interview, he spoke of his pride in both of his sons as the royal brothers both work to solve the issue with their own initiatives. The heir to the throne wrote: "As a father, I am proud that my sons have recognised this threat.

"Most recently, my elder son, William, launched the prestigious Earthshot Prize to incentivise change and help repair our planet over the next ten years…"
