Long Live the Green Ruling Families Around the World


Queen Elizabeth Green PoundGrist.org has posted its picks for rulers who are leveraging “their media magnetism and sovereign sway to draw attention to a variety of eco-causes.” These leaders are helping to green their homelands, counter climate change and make sure the cake we’re eating is organic, too. Initiatives range from support for healthy ocean, rainforest and wildlife populations to sustainable energies to high-quality food, water and air. Royals leading the way include: Prince Charles of England; Princess Basma bint Ali of Jordan; Prince Albert II of Monaco; Princess Lalla Hasnaa of Morocco; Princess Takamado of Japan; Princess Chulabhorn Walailak of Thailand; Prince Hassan Bin Talal of Jordan; Queen Elizabeth II of England; Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of Thailand; and King Carl Gustaf of Sweden.
