Great Britain’s King Charles Makes Controversial Decision on GMO Foods and Animals

King Charles of Britain enjoyed his coronation on May 6 of this year. Known by his full name Charles Philip Arthur George, the man now known as King Charles has long been a proponent of organic farming, and an opponent of genetic engineering because of its negative impact on the environment.

Things have changed since his coronation as King, according to a report from UK organic farming pioneer Julian Rose as published by the website Global Research.

King Charles’ Royal Assent gave his approval to the UK’s Genetic Technology (Precision Breeding) Act of 2023, which will ‘remove control and oversight from gene-edited plants and animals in the UK’ according to GMO Free USA.

“In one of the more shocking hypocrisies of this year so far, Charles III, King of England – considered to be a strong supporter of organic farming and environmental causes – has given his Royal Assent to a biotechnology ‘innovation’ which will provide an open book for UK firms to alter the genome of animals and plants, so as to create novel engineered species and biotech ‘foods,’ Rose wrote.


“In taking this step Charles has committed an open act of betrayal of all bona fide farmers, and particularly of organic farmers.

“This piece of legislation will, for the time being, be unique to the UK, as such animal and plant biotech deformations are not allowed in the EU and many other countries.

Rose continued, sounding the alarm of “novel” DNA experiments among GMO animals and foods.

“A secondary deception relates to the marketing of such novel recombinant DNA experiments. The UK government has stated that no separate definition will be given to gene technology engineered products, therefore no special labeling will be required.”

“Looks like he gave up his ideas under pressure,” one reader on GMO Free USA’s Facebook page said in response to the news.

“Your mother made a BIG mistake in making you king,” another frustrated reader said.


Genetically engineered foods are banned throughout Europe, although the United Kingdom and other countries have attempted to relax safety testing and restrictions lately in hopes of opening up the market.

Made from the process of gene splicing different crops with soil bacterium in laboratory settings, or by directly editing the genes of crops and animals, GMOs are common in the United States but far less less common in places like the UK, Spain, Italy, France, and other nearby countries, except in imported, packaged foods.

In 2008 George, then known as Prince Charles, said that he believed GMO crops will be a “disaster.”

“What we should be talking about is food security, not food production — that is what matters and that is what people will not understand,” he said.

“And if they think it’s somehow going to work because they are going to have one form of clever genetic engineering after another, then again count me out, because that will be guaranteed to cause the biggest disaster environmentally of all-time.”
