Britain's Prince Charles and his two sons William and Harry attended the world premiere of the Netflix television series "Our Planet" on Thursday (April 4) to underline the royal family's support for action against climate change.

British naturalist David Attenborough, 92, who narrates the series, hosted the event at London's Natural History Museum.

The eight-part series, which showcases the natural world and the threats it faces, will be released on Friday (April 5).

Produced by the makers of the award-winning "Planet Earth" show, it takes viewers from glaciers to jungles, looking at how their animal inhabitants are challenged by changes in climate, surroundings and human actions.

"Don't be extravagant, don't waste, do what you can to cut out unnecessary expenditure, don't eat more than you need, don't travel more than you need," Attenborough told Reuters at the premiere when asked what his message would be to the world.

"Be responsible careful citizens of this planet which is our only home, and for the creatures that live in it." More than 600 crew members were involved in the four-year project, filming in 50 countries.

Attenborough, who has helped raise awareness of plastic pollution in the sea, said he hoped the show's message would resonate worldwide through the streaming service's global reach.
