Princes William and Harry were taught about preservation from an early age by their father Prince Charles and grandfather Prince Philip.
And it seems the message is being passed on to the next generation after the Duke of Cambridge revealed that his son Prince George is going to discard his school.
However, he says the eight-year-old is surprised by the amount of garbage returning so soon after.
“So George at school has recently been picking up rubbish, and I was not aware of it, but when I spoke to him the other day, he already showed that he was a little confused and a little annoyed that they went out and picked one day, “Prince William began in the podcast interview published Thursday.
“So the next day they did the same route, the same time and pretty much all the same litter they picked up was back again.

“And I think for him he was trying to understand how and where it all came from.
“He could not understand, he replies, ‘Well, we’ve cleaned this up. Why hasn’t it gone away?'”
And while Prince William is proud to be a champion of the message of preservation, he got a little annoyed with his father and grandfather before he had not been heard.
“It should not be that there is now a third generation coming to increase it even more,” he told host Adam Fleming.
“And you know, to me it would be an absolute disaster if George sat here and talked to you or your successor, Adam, you know within 30 years, no matter what, still say the same thing, because then we’ll be late. . “
In the special interview ahead of the first Earthshot Prize Awards on Sunday, the Duke also took a thinly veiled push against the billionaires who pushed space tourism, saying we should “repair this planet, not find the next one”.
Prince Williams’ personal answer to the question has been to create the Earthshot Award, which aims to find solutions through new technologies or policies to the planet’s biggest environmental problems.
An Australian is among the 15 finalists from around the world vying for one of five prizes.
