Prince George is showing a keen interest in climate change

During an interview with BBC Newscast on BBC Sounds last week, Prince William talked about George's litter picking outing, which was organised by his school Thomas's Battersea.

Prince William, 39, admitted he is worried that his son's generation might still be talking about climate change in 30 years' time, when it "will be too late".

"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," he explained. "[He was] 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, same time and pretty much all the same litter they picked up was back again.

Prince Charles has launched COP26: In Your Hands

"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?'"

He also told presenter Adam Fleming: "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, Adam, you know in like 30 years’ time, whatever, still saying the same thing because by then we will be too late."

Cop26: In Your Hands launched on Monday on Sky Kids, Sky News, and NOW.
