Prince Charles, a vocal critic of man-made climate change, has taken on the challenges and possible solutions in the book aimed at adults, according to reports.

Prince William
One step closer to being KING? Prince William to QUIT his RAF job to be full-time Royal  THE Duke of Cambridge is to bring his career with the RAF as a helicopter pilot to an end to focus full-time on his royal duties. Prince William also intends to relocate his family to London in what has been described as a “big shift” in his role as a member of the royal family. The Prince is expected to leave his role with the East Anglian Air Ambulance this summer and make Kensington Palace his permanent residence along with his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge and his two children, George and Charlotte. The Duke had come under fire recently and some critics had dubbed him a “reluctant” or “workshy” member of the royal family and dissenting voices said he should take his duties seriously. However

In Tearful Farewell, Obama Awards Biden the Medal of Freedom

Featured
At the dusk of both of their political careers, surrounded by teary friends and family, President Barack Obama on Thursday bestowed the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Joe Biden, the man he called "the finest vice president we have ever seen." The vice president winced in shock as Obama announced he was conferring the nation's highest civil honor on his right-hand-man for eight years. Biden turned away from the cameras, wiped away some tears, then stood stoically as Obama draped the blue-and-white ribbon around his neck. "I just hope that the asterisk in history that is attached to my name when they talk about this presidency is that I can say I was part of the journey of a remarkable man who did remarkable things for this country," Biden said. There were standing ovations — several

This Is the Countryside Home Where Kate Middleton and Prince William Really Live

Duchess Catherine
Although Prince William and Kate Middleton may soon be moving to London, for now, they call Anmer Hall home. Located in Norfolk near the North Sea, the estate was given to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge by Queen Elizabeth II as a wedding gift. But living in the countryside is somewhat of an unusual choice for a future King of England. It has, however, provided the young family with a certain degree of privacy. The hall is roughly 120 miles from London’s Kensington Palace, which is technically the Duke and Duchess’s official residence. Anmer Hall is located on the Sandringham Estate, about three miles from the Queen’s own Norfolk residence. (So when the Duke and Duchess celebrate Christmas with the royal family, they have a quick trip over to Grandma’s house.) Prince William and Princ
