While his son Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were making waves during their royal tour in New York City, Prince Charles has made a big announcement of his own.

The 72-year-old royal has signed a deal with Amazon Prime Video in order to get his RE:TV environment programming in front of a bigger audience, after it was first piloted on its own content platform last year.

"I’ve spent a lot my lifetime trying to engage people and businesses with the issues and solutions of the climate crisis," Charles, who serves as editor-in-chief of RE:TV, said in a statement.

"RE:TV was therefore set up with the aim of capturing the will and imagination of humanity and champion the most inspiring solutions for sustainability from around the world.

"I hope that with this partnership with Prime Video we can bring these inspiring innovations and ideas to a wider audience and demonstrate together what is possible in the pursuit of a sustainable future."

The channel on Amazon Prime Video will focus solely on green issues, offering "solutions working to accelerate a more sustainable future".

A spokesperson for RE:TV added: "Covering a huge range of innovation from recycling coffee to reseeding rainforests, the films highlight projects from across the world working on brilliant initiatives that can help transform how business is done, helping us make a cleaner and more sustainable economy."

Programmes for the channel include 'Recycling Everything', which examines TerraCycle's efforts to recycle hard-to-reuse materials, 'Remapping Restoration', a profile of data-sharing environment platform Restor, and 'Refuelling Aviation', which visits Lanzatech in Chicago, a company developing sustainable aviation fuel.

Meanwhile, Harry came under fire again for his use of a private jet to get to and from New York from Los Angeles with Meghan last week.

Their royal tour came just four months after Harry said climate change was one of "the most pressing issues we are facing".

Last month, Harry was also slammed as a "total hypocrite" after it was revealed he flew home from a polo match on a private jet.
