Prince of Wales writes in Country Life

The Prince of Wales has written a special opinion piece to commemorate his birthday in this week’s issue of Country Life, published yesterday.

The Prince’s latest article follows the incredible success of the issue of Country Life that he guest edited last year, which became the biggest selling issue in the magazine’s 117-year history, says Time Inc UK.

In the latest issue of Country Life, The Prince issues a stark warning that if we don’t place a proper value on the countryside, we risk losing it.

Mark Hedges, editor of Country Life, said: “We are delighted that The Prince agreed to mark his 66th birthday by writing a powerful leader on the importance of preserving the countryside and its way of life. The Prince has a deep understanding and connection with every aspect of people working and living in rural Britain, from highlighting the hardship facing hill farmers who, last year, earned on average £8,000 to the 60,000 new entrants needed in the UK farming sector to secure its future, to the importance of preserving village schools, pubs and shops at the heart of country communities.”
