Prince William opened up the moment Prince George found an environmental video so distressing he begged his father to turn it off. The young royal was so saddened by a documentary by Sir David Attenborough on the extinction that he told his father: ‘I don’t want to watch this anymore. “

In his interview with broadcasters, shared by The Mirror, the Duke said: “I think to be perfectly honest I struggle to maintain optimism with my own kids, and it’s really kind of like a me… a moment of understanding where you kind of look at yourself and you’re like ‘am I doing enough about this?’ “”Are we really at that point in life where I can’t be extremely optimistic and happy that my children are so much in nature, because you worry and fear that they will soon realize that we are in a very, very dangerous and difficult time in the environment and as a parent you feel like you let them down immediately.

The prince went on to say that his children George and Charlotte were fans of Sir David Attenborough’s nature documentaries.

However, the harsh reality might get too harsh for George.

He added: “So after watching so many documentaries on David Attenborough recently with my kids they love them, the most recent one – the extinction one – actually George and I had to shut it down. ”

However, it seems Prince George is not the only one affected by the video.

The Duke of Cambridge added: “We were so sad about this halfway through.

“He said to me, you know I don’t wanna watch this anymore, why did he come to this and you know he’s seven and he’s already asking me these questions.”

“He really feels it and I think all 7 year olds can understand that. ”

Prince William concluded the interview by saying, “So I really feel emotionally too, I think every parent, everyone wants to do their best for their kids, and I think we have to have a decade of change, a decade of repairing the planet so that we can pass it on to the next generation and future generations and maintain prosperity for their lives too. ”

The Duke went on to reveal that the Cambridge children adore Attenborough’s work, despite Prince George’s wrath.

He said: “Last night we started watching one of David’s most recent documentaries.

“It’s amazing at bedtime when I can crowd the kids, just yelling ‘we’re going to watch one of David’s documentaries’ and they come in herds. It’s the easiest way to catch my kids and get them ready for bedtime.

The Duke of Cambridge has spoken out on the matter after announcing a partnership with David Attenborough to launch the Earthshot Prize.

The Earthshot Prize funds people, organizations and more over the next decade to deliver viable solutions to climate change.

Sir David’s history with the royal family began over 60 years ago, in the same career but with a different young heir.

David Attenborough began his broadcasting career with the BBC Zoo Quest in 1954.

He presented the London Zoo nature documentary until the early 1960s.

Towards the end of his time with the show, he caught the attention of the royal family – especially the younger royals, Prince Charles and Princess Anne.

He first met the royal family through them in 1958, when the nine and eight-year-olds visited the BBC television studios in Lime Grove.

His first meeting with the royal children marked the start of a long relationship with the family.

He built a strong bond with Queen Elizabeth II in particular, who knighted him in 1985.

She used her talents as a producer between 1986 and 1991 to coordinate her Christmas speech.

His talents spread through the family like wildfire, to Prince William before his children.

He met the naturalist on several occasions in his capacity as a working royal, but also spoke at length about his personal influence.
