Prince Albert Visits Botanic Gardens, Talks about Climate Issues

Prince Albert of Monaco enjoyed a visit to Edinburgh’s Royal Botanic Gardens earlier this week. The royal - who is an environmentalist - used the tour to learn about the important work the gardens do to battle global climate change. Albert - who was accompanied by horticultural director Dr. David Rae - was reportedly so eager to visit the Scottish site he made a personal visitation request. Albert has used his position to draw attention to climate issues on several occasions. Last year, the 48-year-old embarked on a four-day expedition to the North Pole to highlight global warming. The prince - who was following in the footsteps of his great-great-grandfather, Prince Albert I, who made four arctic trips in his lifetime - called on the world to find solutions to environmental problems. He said, “We must try to find solutions to global warming with scientists obviously, but also at the individual level. I think everyone by their behavior can make a small contribution to a global and extraordinary effort.”
