The conservation charity founded by Prince William, second in line to the British throne and a well-known environmentalist, keeps its investments in a bank that is one of the world’s biggest backers of fossil fuels. The Royal Foundation also has money invested in a fund that backed giant food companies linked to tropical deforestation through their use of palm oil. The Royal Foundation said by email that it had followed Church of England guidelines on ethical investment since 2015, and goes beyond them. It’s not clear what, if any, role Prince William had in investment decisions, as he did not respond to requests for comment. Experts in green finance say such investments are a governance blind spot.

After a string of arrests and erratic behavior that spanned Hawaii to Vermont, “Flash” actor Ezra Miller said they have begun treatment for “complex mental health issues.” The 29-year-old Miller, who identifies as non-binary, issued a statement late Monday. On Sept. 26, Miller is due to appear for arraignment in Vermont Superior Court after being cited for felony burglary in Stamford, Vermont. Authorities last week said Miller had taken several bottles of alcohol from a residence while the homeowners weren’t present. Miller was also arrested twice earlier this year in Hawaii, including for disorderly conduct and harassment at a karaoke bar. The second incident was for second-degree assault.
