The Duke of Cambridge was candid during a recent interview as he shared his love for conservation work, as well as his dreams for children Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Prince William recently sat down for an interview with ITV News’ Mark Austin where he spoke about the importance of stopping illegal wildlife trafficking to help protect Africa’s animals and other endangered species, Express reported. It was during the interview that he mentioned how he wanted his two children to be involved in conservation projects when they grow up.
The second-in-line to the throne can even picture how his oldest son will look when he would be out on the field during potential future conservation projects. “I can see George being a bit of a bum sometimes out in the conservation world with his bangles and his sandals,” he stated. He also commented that both his children would have a “wonderful time” in Africa.
Prince William added that he would like to have his two children develop an interest in conservation work and continue what he has set out to do. “I think I'd love them to be interested in the subject and pursue the same sort of ideas and aims that I am,” he said.
Meanwhile, this was not the first time that Prince William spoke about fatherhood and his two children. He previously shared that having two kids under the age of 3 can be quite a challenge, Hello magazine reported. He stated that two year old Prince George and nearly one-year old Princess Charlotte were very active children. “[They’re] running around, pushing things, jumping. Please tell me it gets easier!” Prince William joked.
The Duke of Cambridge even described Princess Charlotte as a “very sweet” child. However, he is already preparing himself to the time when she turns into a little teen. “All fathers say, ‘Just you wait, when you get to 9, 10, 11, they go crazy. I’m looking forward to it, there will be some drama!” he added.
