From the Times of London:

The Prince of Wales is in “advanced negotiations” with Hollywood film producers to make a movie in which he will tell us how to lead our lives.

The prince, once an object of fun for talking to his plants, is being wooed to make a documentary film similar to Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth.

The former US vice-president’s plea to save the planet was a surprise box-office success, making the idea of a royal “follow-up” a realistic proposition.

Insiders at Clarence House insist the idea for the film, which has a working title of The Harmony Project in palace circles, came from Charles himself.
