Prince Charles is being extremely green conscious and is even opting to stay home than visit lavish resort sited,
It has been reported that the environment friendly royal has canceled his annual skiing trip.
The 58-year-old prince has traditionally enjoyed a break in the exclusive resort of Klosters, in the Swiss mountains, with his sons Princes William, 24, and Harry, 22, however this year he has no plans to hit the piste.
His sons are also unable to make the trip due to their Army commitments.
A source told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, "The people of Klosters are devastated - he has made many of them rich."
It has been suggested that it was the prince's wife, Camilla, who urged Charles to hang up his salopettes, after becoming increasingly annoyed with the company he was keeping in Switzerland.
A source told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, "Like Diana, Camilla is not very keen on all the pirouetting that goes on around the prince from some pretty frightful hangers-on. She thinks it's time he shock them off."
However, friends have denied this is the reason behind Charles' early retirement from the slopes.
One said, "The desire is more rooted in his desire to cut down on his flights and be more environmentally friendly. He is reviewing all areas of his life which involve travel and because William and Harry can't be there, thought it would be wiser to give Klosters a miss."
