Prince Charles is expected to talk about his worries over the 'broken promises' he's made his grandchildren Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

The Duke of Cornwall, who gave up his beloved home in preparation to become king, is due to launch his Terra Carta, or Earth Carta, virtually to coincide with the One Planet Summit in Paris.

He is expected to go into more detail about how his actions and those of everyone else living on earth is affecting future generations and could result in promises being broken to future generations - and notably his grandchildren.

Prince Charles has four grandchildren - Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, five, Prince Louis, two, children of son Prince William and Kate, and grandson Archie, aged 19-months, who is the son of Prince Harry and wife Meghan.

And the Duke is expected to draw on his experiences as a grandfather to hammer home a message which will pull on the heartstrings of everyone and hope to get private companies to sign up for the Terra Carta initiative to built a more sustainable future.

Terra Carta is deliberately named with reference to the Magna Carta, a treaty signed in 1215 which many regard as the foundation stone for democracy in England.

Making his case for Terra Carta the prince is forecast to argue, “Sustainability is a choice. If we make it a part of our core values it will define our purpose, determine our choices and drive our actions.

“It is this which will determine whether or not our children and grandchildren look back on a series of broken promises or, instead, reflect on a tipping point at which the world shifted to a more sustainable, equitable and prosperous trajectory.”

Prince Charles is also due to co-host a summit session with French president Emmanuel Macron focusing on green investment.

According to Sky News the pair discussed this topic on Friday evening during a phone call.

Last year he launched the Sustainable Markets Initiative at the Davos World Economic Forum - a new body that encourages companies to operate in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way.
