King Charles, is making an appearance on our screens.
The King appeared in the short film The Speeches, with notable talents including Idris Elba and Olivia Colman. The 19 performers and environmentalists joined the monarch as part of the RE: TV channel, which the King founded in 2020.
The channel, which focuses on climate change, has so far broadcast more than 100 short videos showcasing environmentally friendly alternatives.
All of the performers in the video, including actor Glenn Close, read words from King Charles III.
The King famously orchestrated his way through advocating environmental causes during his tenure as Prince of Wales.
In February 1970, King George VI delivered his first speech on environmental issues in the United Kingdom.
The video begins with the King remarking, “Global warming, climate change, and the devastating loss of biodiversity are the greatest threats [that] humanity has ever faced…”
The voice then cuts to actor Idris Elba, who continues the King’s speech.
As he concludes a screen shows the title of the video, along with the phrase, ’50 Years of Speaking Up for The Planet’.
The King could be seen closing the clips towards the end of the short film, which is just over three minutes long.
“And, we’ve got to remember that the natural world is what sustains us.”
The video also contains footage of natural disasters caused by the climate issue, such as drought.
The video includes shots of places like Kew Gardens.
