Prince William isn’t the only one in his family trying to protect the environment. His oldest son, Prince George, has already begun to notice the negative effects humans can have on the planet, specifically when they litter.

The Duke of Cambridge recently was featured on an episode of the BBCNewscast podcast to discuss his prestigious environmental award program, the Earthshot Prize. During his visit, Will opened up on the importance of making changes now, to ensure that we aren’t “robbing our children’s future.”

“I think that's not fair. And so I'm trying to use my little bit of influence, my little bit of profile to highlight some incredible people doing amazing things and will genuinely help fix some of these problems,” William said in a clip shared on the duke and duchess’s joint IG account.

The 39-year-old royal also took a moment to talk about Prince George’s recent experience picking up litter at school and how it makes him “confused and annoyed.”

William continued, “George at school recently has been doing litter picking. And I didn't realize but talking to him the other day he was already showing that he was getting a bit confused and annoyed by the fact they went 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. And I think that for him, he was trying to understand how and where it came from.”

Looks like the apple definitely didn’t fall far from the tree.
