Prince Charles has expressed concern for his unborn grandchild, in a speech made during his royal visit to Ghana.
At a meeting about plastic pollution, the future King said his fourth grandchild deserved better than a "polluted, damaged and destroyed world".
"I am about to have another grandchild actually," he said. "I suspect quite a few of you may too have grandchildren or will do soon.
"It does seem to me insanity if we are going to bequeath this completely polluted, damaged and destroyed world to them. All grandchildren deserve a better future."
Prince Charles was, of course, talking about Prince Harry and his wife, Duchess Meghan's impending joy due in the Northern Hemisphere Spring next year.
During the visit, Prince Charles discussed the world's plastic crisis and was also gifted a portrait of himself made from recycled materials.
The artist, Chineyenwa Okoro Onu, is an eco campaigner who runs an art project called Waste or Create.
During the meeting she told the visiting Prince that the workshops had "collected about 10 tonnes of plastic" and turned it into art.
While he did note the arrival of Prince Harry's child, he and his wife, Camilla, seem to be the most wonderful grandparents to the three grandchildren he already has; Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
In fact, combining his love of the environment and his family, Prince Charles refurbished his own son's childhood tree house for George in 2015.
The beloved play area, which was restored to its former glory when it was gifted to Prince Harry and Prince William in 1989, is located in the stunning gardens of Highgrove estate in Gloucester, which has been Prince Charles' life work.
And now his adorable grandson has a special place reserved among the breath-taking greenery - to share with his siblings and baby Sussex!
In an exclusive interview with The Weekly, Prince Charles opened up about his love for gardening and the environment.
In the interview, which took place in the garden at Highgrove, Prince Charles spoke about how he had transformed the piece of heaven.
"As you can perhaps imagine, after very nearly forty years of, as it were, 'painting a picture' on what was then a totally blank canvas of a garden, it all means a great deal to me now," the Prince explained.
"I remember that my sister and I had a very small plot of our own in a hidden corner of the garden at Buckingham Palace where we grew vegetables.
"But I suspect I was most influenced as a child by my grandmother, Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother's gardens at Royal Lodge, in Windsor Great Park, and at Birkhall in Scotland.
"I adored both these gardens as they had the kind of special features that inevitably appeal to children… Needless to say, it is fascinating to watch new generations of children responding exactly as I had hoped, and in the same way I did."
