Prince William has always been a supporter of environmental activism, a trait he shares with his father, Prince William. But recently the Duke of Cambridge revealed how becoming a parent has shaped his views.
Prince William and Kate Middleton are the proud parents of three wonderful children-Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The Duke made these comments in an ITV documentary, Prince William: A Planet For Us All, which will be released next month.
He talked about how has “always loved nature” and that fatherhood has given him a “new sense of purpose.”
“Now I have got George, Charlotte and now Louis in my life – your outlook does change. You want to hand over to the next generation, the wildlife in a much better condition,” the Prince remarked.
“I always believe it is possible to give young people hope and belief that things can get fixed. I have the belief that if we all work together, we can make a difference.”
This documentary has been in the works for two years already, as a film crew followed Prince William around as he met with people in the UK and abroad who were playing their part in protecting and restoring the environment, according to Kensington Palace.
During the documentary, fans will get to see William’s journey from being passionate about conservation to wanting to play a greater global leadership role on the environment.
This comes shortly after the royal confessed about how he was feeling about his children returning to school, admitting that it had been something of a “relief”. This isn’t the first time the royal has mentioned this.
On Emergency Services Day the Prince was in Belfast, where he met serving blue light responders as part of his visit. There as he was chatting with he told a police officer that he suspects other mums and dads were having the same experience as himself.
The father-of-three said: “I think every parent is breathing a sigh of relief that school has started again.” He went on: “Five months – it’s been wonderful, but it’s been a long five months!”
