THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT
34 When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, 35 and one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. 36 “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” 37 He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the greatest and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
Matthew 22: 34 – 40

Prince Williams is “determined to start and end this decade as an optimist”. He strongly believes in “unleashing the greatest talents of our generation to fix our planet”. He is indeed one of these talents that takes part in Countdown.
