Prince Charles continues to ignore backlash from The Crown as he launches new campaign

The Prince of Wales' encouragement to the people of the UK came in an Instagram post from Clarence House. The heir to the throne said: “As someone with a passion for planting trees, I can only encourage you all to get planting for Plant Britain.” The Prince of Wales shared his message of support for the launch of the BBC Countryfile new campaign called Plant Britain.

Countryfile has launched a brand new campaign to help tackle climate change.

The campaign's goal is to plant 750,000 trees, which is one for every child in the UK who is starting primary school this year.

The Prince of Wales is not the only person to support the campaign.

It is also being backed by actress Dame Judi Dench, Queen guitarist Brian May and 1960's model icon Twiggy.

The BBC's Countryfile is working with the Woodland Trust who are supplying trees for viewers to plant at various sites across the UK.

The Woodland Trust gives out free tree packs so people can get involved in the planting scheme.

The new Countryfile programme will show just how much our trees and plants contribute to the health of the planet.

They take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen and act as vital, life-support systems for wildlife, insects, and pollinators.

The programme will be linked to an online interactive map that will allow viewers across the UK wherever in the UK that their sapling has been placed.

The map will log plantings of saplings as well as other plants and where packets of seeds have been dispersed.

The Clarence House Instagram page said: "Did you know that when Prince Charles plants a tree, he often gives a branch a friendly shake to wish it well?"

The special episode, called Plant Britain was shown as part of the BBC's Countryfile programme tonight on BBC One at 6:15 pm

The historical drama depicts the love triangle between Prince Charles, Camilla and Princess Diana, as the future King is shown to ignore the late princess in favour of carrying out an affair with Camilla.

Last week, The Royal Family posted a picture of Camilla on Instagram as she attended a virtual prize-giving for the written entries of the 2020 Queen’s Commonwealth Essay competition, which had the theme "Climate Action and Commonwealth".
