Prince William says son George, 8, is confused and annoyed by litter

Prince William has said that Prince George becomes “confused and annoyed” by litter.

The royal family have a number of eco friendly habits they maintain, with George now taking part by working with his school, Thomas’s Battersea, to pick up rubbish around the local area.

But the young royal has confided in his dad that it annoys him when it appears to be back the very next day in the same places.

Speaking to the BBC’s Adam Fleming in an interview at Kensington Palace about climate change, William said: “So George at school recently has been doing litter picking.

“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, same time and pretty much all the same litter they picked up back again.

“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?”

Prince William’s attempts to battle climate change have led him to forming the Earthshot Prize, with 15 finalists being announced last month.


The goal of the prize is to get the world’s smartest to focus on attempting to fix our planet’s largest environmental problems.

Five winners will be chosen later this month, each being given a grant worth £1million pounds.

He continued: “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.”

14 global companies, including Walmart, Unilever, Ikea and Microsoft have offered support to the Earthshot finalists, agreeing to help scale their ideas.

The BBC have also produced a five-part documentary series to coincide with the Earthshot prize that explores the damage our planet has sustained and the possible ways to help heal it.

William added: “We can't have more clever speak, clever words but not enough action.”

The Earthshot Prize: Repairing Our Planet is available via BBC iPlayer.
