PRINCE GEORGE was “confused and angry” while picking litter, mirroring the same passion for environmentalism as his father. George along with Princess Charlotte attend the private Thomas’s School in Battersea. Speaking to a BBC Podcast his father Prince William revealed a litter pick had left George frustrated by the state of the planet.
The Duke of Cambridge said: “So George at school recently has been doing litter picking and I didn’t realise but talking to him the other day he was already showing that he was getting a bit confused and a bit sort of annoyed by the fact they went out litter picking one day and then the very next day they did the same route.
“And I think that for him he was trying to understand how and where it all came from.
“He couldn’t understand, he’s like, ‘well, we cleaned this. “Why has it not gone away?” William has been extremely vocal about environmentalism and climate change over the last year.
The Duke of Cambridge spoke at the COP26 summit in Glasgow last November. Last year he also started the Earthshot Prize awarded to five winners for their contributions to environmentalism.
However, William has previously said that he is concerned that George’s generation will still be talking about climate change in decades to come.
He said: “But it shouldn’t be that there’s a third-generation now coming along having to ramp it up even more.“And you know, for me, it would be an absolute disaster if George is sat here talking to you or your successor.
“You know in like 30 years’ time, whatever, still saying the same thing, because by then we will be too late.” George the eldest of the Cambridge children is currently in year 4 at St Thomas’s.
It is thought that George and Charlotte’s younger brother Louis will join them at the school in September.
