On display at Buckingham Palace, Attenborough said the Queen and the rest of the royal family have made a commitment to keeping our planet green. According to the biologist, we have the knowledge to correct mistakes. “The choices we make can lead to a better future. For the sake of nature and for the sake of humanity.”
Pictures of natural phenomena flashed through the palace, after which a projection of the queen appeared. She stated that not only her late husband Prince Philip, but also her son Charles and grandson William are committed to the planet. “I couldn’t be more proud.”
Prince William then took the stage to loud applause. He said he looks to people like Attenborough, who are committed to preserving the planet. The prince said that protecting the planet is urgent today, on Queen Elizabeth’s jubilee. “But I am optimistic, just like them. In the past 70 years we have invented the internet, put someone on the moon and developed vaccines,” continued the Queen’s grandson. “If people focus, anything is possible.”
The Prince concluded that then we can look back to a “wonderful world.” Then singer Celeste sang the song What a wonderful world.
