Barack Obama wasn't the only notable figure Prince Harry interviewed while guest editing Wednesday's BBC Radio 4 program. The 33-year-old royal also sat down for an important chat about climate change with his father, Prince Charles.
Harry, who affectionately called his father "Pa" during the interview, in which they also discussed mental health and ISIS, revealed that he does pick his father's brain "more now than I have ever done."
"Well, darling boy, it makes me very proud to think that you understand," Charles replied, recalling how he bored his son "to tears over so many years" when discussing environmental issues, while the public is now "beginning to realize that what I was trying to say may not have been as dotty as they thought."
Harry then explained that there was "so much hope" among his generation about finding solutions to climate change.
"My dear boy, if I may say so, the fact you are saying this gives me enormous optimism because I haven't put you off," Charles shared, adding that he wanted to "ensure that you and your children, my grandchildren... have a world fit to live in, that provides them with opportunity."
