Prince Andrew's Status As 'His Royal Highness' Threatened by Epstein Lawsuit, Author Says
Prince Andrew could lose his coveted status as "His Royal Highness" over a lawsuit brought by Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre, his biographer says.The Duke of York is being sued for sexual assault and battery by Virginia Giuffre whose court filing accuses him of abuse while she was 17 years old.
Changing the fuel source of his car is not the only measure he has taken to help the environment, Charles said.
"I haven't eaten meat and fish on two days a week, and I don't eat dairy products on one day a week," he said. "If more [people] did that, you would reduce a lot of the pressure."
He continued: "I've made sure to ensure that the heating is done in a way that is sustainable. I put in biomass boiler systems and solar panels, which I've managed to get on the roof of Clarence House and at Highgrove."
Global leaders at the 2021Climate Change Conference have to do more than "just talk" because "there's no action on the ground," Charles told the BBC.
It is because of the slow actions to address the climate crisis that "young people will get frustrated," he said.

Mike Foltynewicz, Hunter Wood and outfielder Jason Martin have elected free agency.Foltynewicz is the biggest name of the three, but it’s been some time since the right-hander seemingly broke out with Atlanta back in 2018. In his first and only season with the Rangers, Folty was given some leash, making 24 starts and adding four bullpen appearances for a total 139 innings. Folty pitched to a 5.44 ERA/6.02 FIP with a below-average 16.6 percent strikeout rate, but a solid 6.1 percent walk rate.
