Royal family help launch new climate change Netflix series
Prince Charles says he is proud of his sons for sharing his passion to restore 'the balance of nature'
A new eight-part Netflix series chronicling life on Earth and the threat posed by climate change has received a royal sendoff at London's Natural History Museum.
Prince Charles lauded the "Our Planet" series and its narrator David Attenborough at the world premiere Thursday night. He was joined by sons Prince William and Prince Harry.
Charles praised Attenborough, 92, for helping to "lift the veil of ignorance from our eyes about the intricate and integrated beauty of our home."
He also said he is proud of his sons William and Harry for sharing his passion for working to restore "the balance of nature."
He joked that he thought they had been ignoring him when he told them about the importance of the natural world but found out when they reached adulthood that they had actually been listening.
The ambitious Netflix series, produced in conjunction with the World Wildlife Federation and Silverback Films, was four years in the making and involved 600 crew members filming in 50 countries and on each continent.
The first segment featured astonishing footage detailing the variety of the world's wildlife and chronicling the sound and fury as 75 million tons of glacial ice collapsed into the sea off Greenland.
