Prince Charles has warned of "uniquely challenging" times for young people in a new comment in The Sunday Telegraph this past weekend. As the future King celebrates 44 years since his youth charity The Prince's Trust was founded, he stressed that it is a "particularly difficult time to be young" with the pandemic still continuing on all over the world.

Prince Charles, in a new comment released by The Sunday Telegraph, has warned of "uniquely challenging" times for the youth in the age of the COVID-19 pandemic. He estimates that about a million young people in the U.K. have been impacted by the coronavirus crisis and stressed that it is a "particularly difficult time to be young" as the pandemic continues on.

Prince Charles: "Unquestionably vast" amounts of help needed

It has been 44 years since Prince Charles' youth charity The Prince's Trust was established in 1976 - times have never been easy for young people, as the Prince of Wales stressed in the interview:

"This year, we celebrate the fact that over the last nearly 45 years, we have helped a million young people to change their lives for the better. Overall these years since the trust was launched, there has never been an easy time," he wrote.

"However, there has never been a time as uniquely challenging as the present, when the pandemic has left perhaps another million young people needing urgent help to protect their futures. The task ahead is unquestionably vast, but it is not insurmountable."

The Prince's Trust is a youth charity founded by Prince Charles that aims to help young people from the ages of 11 to 30 get into jobs, education and training.
