The approach of Prince William was on full display during a busy day of engagements in Dubai that week. The British government recruited him to help in promoting Brand UK. They have long seen the royals as a unique selling point for the country. Though the family has had its trials and tribulations over the past year, it still exudes stability and strength compared to the chaotic politics of the home.
What Is Unique To William Is Handling His Commitments Around Core Roles
The climate is the topic that most resonates with the young people who will one day be his topics, and he has made it the center of his plan. Before arriving at Expo 2020 in Dubai, he met Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed Al Nahyan.
They planted new mangrove trees in a park that the local administration. It says that it will sequester more than four times more carbon than an equivalent-sized rainforest. They also provide much-needed habitation for wildlife and protect the coastline from flooding and erosion.
Then, considering center stage at the ‘world expo,’ Prince William issued a stern warning about the weather.
The prince said that it was the ‘decisive decade .’If they do nothing, by 2030, they will be accelerating towards ever more devastating planetary and humanitarian crises due to our changing climate.
It’s the kind of message you’d expect from a modern royal, using their platform to draw attention to an important issue of public concern. Prince William stands out and potentially connects with young people because he doesn’t stop there.
He went on to say that if they acted then, they would be on the path to a repaired and regenerated planet that will flourish for generations to come.
He pointed to his Earthshot Prize and described it as a platform to discover, showcase, accelerate and scale innovative solutions to fix their planet.
They heard from two Earthshot finalists who came up with an onshore coral farm for reef restoration and the largest living dock on the planet to support native marine life. Prince William announced they would receive half a million pounds (about $680,000) each from port operator DP World to help bring the ideas to life.
Royals have long used their profiles to blaze a light on the causes they take much care of them. Traditionally, that means appearing at charities and events featured in the newspaper.
Diana, the mother of Prince William, went a step further. She chose sensitive topics and put herself on the front lines, for example, walking through a landmine field or shaking hands with someone with HIV/AIDS.
Prince William is next-level royalty, taking a solution-focused approach to acknowledging the problem and offering a constructive response. He is hopeful over fear and evolves a purely ceremonial role.
However, you risk backing a controversial or politically sensitive solution. That will be more of a problem once William is the royal monarch, but before then, the prince seems willing to take a risk to deepen ties with his generation and the next.
Monitoring Of Queen’s Health After Charles Tested Positive For Covid-19 Again
There are new concerns regarding the health of Queen Elizabeth II after it revealed that Prince Charles had been re-infected with coronavirus. Clarence House revealed that the 73-year-old had pulled out of an appearance in the English city of Winchester on Thursday and was ‘self-isolating’ after testing positive for ‘covid-19’ for the second time.
As per the information from a royal source Charles had met the Queen “recently” but did not elaborate on when the meeting took place. However, the citation added that the ’95-year-old monarch’ showed no symptoms, and they would continue to monitor the situation. The Queen seemed to be in great shape over the weekend, laughing and joking with guests at a remarkable reception to mark ‘the start of her Platinum Jubilee year.’
Queen’s Another Heartbreaking Anniversary
It has probably been a week of mixed emotions for the monarch. On Monday, she returned to Windsor after reaching the historic milestone of 70 years on the British throne on Sunday. Still, it also marked seven decades since her father’s death, King George VI. On Wednesday, she also marked 20 years since her sister’s death, Princess Margaret. Despite her painful anniversaries, a royal source told that the Queen would resume her usual audiences, credentials, and privy council meetings upon traveling back to Windsor.
She expects her diary to continue as a ‘combination of virtual and in-person events.’ And in yet another sign of the Queen’s eagerness to get back on track after her bout of ill health late last year, she hopes to attend three major engagements the following month. On March 2, a diplomatic reception at Windsor Castle, the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on March 14, and service of ‘thanks-giving’ for her late husband, Philip, at the same location on March 29.
The Other Conclusions Of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Message
Unsurprisingly, we didn’t see the Queen on Sunday, but we did get that special message where she expressed her wish that Camilla take the title of Queen Consort when Charles becomes King.
Camilla has been a controversial figure, with some persisting to blame her for the demise of Charles’s marriage to the late Princess Diana. Sentiment towards the Duchess of Cornwall has softened since the 1990s. With the moves of the Queen to ‘future-proof,’ the monarchy proposes the family feels the British public is at last ready to accept her as future Queen. They see ‘The monarch -blessing’ on his daughter-in-law as a reward for Camilla’s years of public service but also an acceptance of the kind of monarchy Charles is trying to create.
However, they did not expect the Queen’s intervention on the subject of Camilla’s ‘future title.’ They might have missed a few other notable moments in her Platinum Jubilee message.
The monarch made it very clear that she had no intention of going anywhere momentarily. As she approached her 96th year, some had speculated that the Queen might step back or even abdicate from her. Still, she firmly ruled that out and said that she would always dedicate her life to the service of the Queen.
The other moment royal watchers might have missed was the poignant acknowledgment of Prince Philip’s life in service to her. She described feeling “blessed” to have “a partner willing to play the role of consort and make the sacrifices that go with it.”
Prince Andrew Will Attest Under Pledge Next Month
The close sources to the Duke said that the Duke of York had agreed to state under oath in the UK on March 10 as part of the civil sexual abuse case against him. Last month, David Boies, the attorney for Andrew’s accuser, Virginia Giuffre, said his legal team hoped to confront Prince Andrew with his denials. And they attempt to blame Ms. Giuffre for her abuse in his statement and court. According to the Daily Telegraph, Boies and another lawyer representing Giuffre, Sigrid McCawley, will make the deposition, expected to last two days. For sixty-one years, Andrew has repeatedly denied the allegations of Giuffre and read the latest developments in the case there.
Camilla went straight back to work after receiving the latest seal of approval from the monarch in her jubilee message at the weekend. In her first outing since the announcement of Queen, the Duchess of Cornwall went to a primary school, Bath, England, prior to going to a local domestic violence charity, the St. John’s Foundation.
Eugenie Reveals Her Son’s Super Cute Nickname

In The Royal Diary
Soon you’ll be able to get the Duchess of Cambridge to help put the kids to bed. Bedtime is obtaining the royal treatment, with Kate narrating a story for a children’s TV show on Sunday. The special royal guest will appear on the BBC children’s television channel in its “Bedtime Stories” segment. It keeps Children’s Mental Health Week across the UK this week. Kate opted to read Jill Tomlinson’s “The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark,” according to a press release. It narrates the story of a baby barn owl, Plop, who grows confident and overcomes her fears with the help of others.
The Duke of Sussex defined himself as ‘a typical guy’ who wants to help fix things and urged the public to get tested for HIV. And find out their status in the same way we learned to do with coronavirus to support others safe.
