To celebrate the thirtieth birthday of his charitable foundation – last year he raised a quarter of a billion dollars – the very first joint TV interview with Princes Charles, William and Harry will be broadcast across Australia by Channel 7. This will be:
on Wednesday, 24 May, at 830PM in NSW and Queensland,
on Saturday 27 May at 730pm in Western Australia, and
on Saturday 27 May at 800PM in South Australia and Victoria
“At an age when he could be contemplating retirement, Prince Charles has thrown himself into a range of activities and interests, particularly his charitable work. Last year, he raised a prodigious sum- in Australian dollars, about a quarter of a billion,” said ACM National Convener, Professor David Flint. ”This broadcast will allow Australians to get to know something more about the princes, their interests and their work. Because it will clash with some serious sport, some viewers may wish to set their recorders.”
The Prince’s Trust is one of sixteen charities in Prince Charles’ stable of not-for-profit organizations, known simply as The Prince’s Charities. Charles actually founded fourteen of these to address areas of previously unmet need. He is president of each of them which allows him to take an active-and unpaid – role in each.The charities are involved in work for disadvantaged youth, opportunity and enterprise, education, health, the built environment, responsible business, the natural environment and the arts.
