The Duke of Cambridge divulged some interesting insight into life as a dad to Prince George and Princess Charlotte in a new documentary.
ITV’s Prince Charles: Inside the Duchy of Cornwall sees the future king acting as a “powerful voice” for farming communities, visiting the Duchy land to highlight the lives of its farmers and tenants.
The second episode of the two-part series (which will air Thursday 31st October) sees Prince William, 37, meeting and chatting with farmers, revealing, “My children are already playing on the tractors and … it’s so important to get outside, and have the children understand nature.”
The Duke also comments how much his eldest son George, 6, would love visiting the farm, telling the farmers, “He would be absolutely loving this. He’s obsessed!”
The documentary highlights the Duke of Cornwall’s efforts to increase Duchy woodland, with 2,000 trees already planted in the area.
“I love planting trees and trying to improve and enhance the environment to restore lost habitats and all these things,” said Charles.
“I just pray that climate change and all the horrors we are facing now if we don’t do something about it, won’t completely destroy all this effort.”
The Prince of Wales also goes on to say how “touched” he is that his son, William, has taken such an interest in the Duchy of Cornwall.
“When I saw it, I couldn’t believe it, I was deeply touched and moved by what he said. It practically reduced me to tears because I suddenly thought, well, just hearing that from him, has made the last 50 years worthwhile,” he said.
William’s wife Kate Middleton, 37, is also on a crusade to ensure nature has a prominent place in her children’s lives.
Earlier this year she designed a stunning garden at the Chelsea Flower Show, taking her oldest children George and Charlotte along to the Back To Nature garden, delighting fans with a series of enchanting photographs of her children enjoying the space.
Prince Charles: Inside the Duchy of Cornwall, premieres on Thursday 24th October, 9pm on ITV.
