Princess Anne has explained why she supports genetically modified crops - despite her brother Charles being an outspoken opponent of them.
"They do add to our ability to perhaps be more efficient users of the land," she told BBC One's Countryfile.
"I think in the long-term, when you've got the prospect of nine billion [people] to feed, you are going to need some help in doing that."
Prince Charles once warned that the development of GM crops risked creating "the biggest disaster environmentally of all time" and accused multinational corporations of conducting an experiment with nature which had gone "seriously wrong".
