British Crown Prince Charles along with his sons William and Harry will on Tuesday appear in a cameo role with a digitally created 'frog' in an Internet film to promote one of his environmental initiatives.
The three Princes are joined by James Bond actor Daniel Craig, Indiana Jones star Harrison Ford, the Dalai Lama, footballer Pele, comedian Robin Williams, singer Joss Stone and children in a 90-second Internet film to boost awareness about the Charle's Raincrest Project.
"Our aim, with your help, is to build an online community to call for urgent action to protect the rainforests, without which we will most certainly lose the battle against catastrophic climate change," Charles said.
They all appear alongside a digitally-created 'frog' in a video that will be shown on websites including Spacier and YouTube to help win public support for the Prince's campaign to halt destruction of tropical rainforests.
"One of the Internet's strengths is that it can enable diverse communities to come together to ensure that everybody's views and actions can really be made to count," Charles added.
This is the first time the heir to the throne has used MySpace in his official role and the stunt shows the increasing importance that the Royal Family and its advisers are placing on the web in their efforts to get their message over to the public.
