Prince William announces the birth of his son. George was ‘annoyed’ by trash while LITTER PICKING.
THE PRINCE OF WALES has stated that his son George went litter picking and was “annoyed” by the amount of garbage he discovered.
The Duke of Cambridge’s remarks came ahead of his Earthshot Prize, which he will award this Sunday for saving the planet.
“So George at school has recently been doing litter picking and I didn’t realize but talking to him the other day he was already exhibiting that he was getting a bit confused and a bit frustrated by the fact that they went out litter picking one day,” he told the BBC.
“Then the next day, they did the same route, at the same hour, and picked up almost all of the same rubbish.”
“And I believe he was trying to figure out how and where it all originated from.”
“He didn’t get it; he was like, ‘Well, we cleaned this.'” ‘How come it hasn’t gone away?’ William also expressed his concern that Prince George and his generation will be discussing climate change in 30 years, when it will be “too late.” “But it shouldn’t be that a third generation suddenly comes along and has to push it up even more,” he continued.
“And you know, it would be an utter disaster for me if George is sitting here talking to you or your successor, Adam, in 30 years or whatever, still saying the same thing, because by then it will be too late.”
On the same day that Star Trek’s William Shatner became the oldest man to be launched into orbit, the Duke slammed billionaire “space tourism.”
“We need some of the world’s best brains and minds focused on trying to heal this planet, not seeking to find the next location to live,” William remarked.
William spoke out ahead of his Earthshot Prize, which will award £50 million over the next decade to environmental initiatives.
The prize, dubbed the “Nobel Prize of the Environmental World,” encourages specialists and millionaires to devote their time and resources to rescuing the environment.
His interview with Adam Fleming of BBC Newscast, which was taped at Kensington Palace, will be accessible as a podcast on BBC Sounds.
William played snippets from his five-part documentary The Earthshot Prize: Repairing our Planet throughout the 35-minute conversation.
“I want the things that I’ve enjoyed – the outdoors, wildlife, the environment – to be there for my children, and not just my children, but all children,” he stated.
“If we aren’t careful, we will be plundering our children’s future by what we do now.”
