Prince William discusses George litter picking at school

After a long and no doubt fun-filled Christmas holiday, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are due back at school today.

The sibling duo attends the private Thomas’s School in Battersea, South London, and today marks the start of the lent term.

George, the oldest child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and third in line to the throne, is now in Year 4 having started at the school in 2017.

And while it seems the young prince enjoys his lessons, there was apparently one school activity he took part in that left him “confused and annoyed”.

And his dad Prince William revealed that activity was carrying out litter picking sessions, which left his son frustrated about the state of the planet.

Speaking to a BBC podcast last year, William divulged: “So George at school recently has been doing litter picking and I didn’t realise but talking to him the other day he was already showing that he was getting a bit confused and a bit sort of annoyed by the fact they went out 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 back again.

“And I think that for him he was trying to understand how and where it all came from. He couldn’t understand, he’s like, ‘well, we cleaned this. Why has it not gone away?’”

William has been very vocal in the past 12 months about turning the tide on climate change and environmental problems.

And he’s previously said that he was concerned that George and his generation might still be talking about climate change in decades to come.

He added: “But it shouldn’t be that there’s a third-generation now coming along having to ramp it up even more.

“And you know, for me, it would be an absolute disaster if George is sat here talking to you or your successor, you know in like 30 years time, whatever, still saying the same thing, because by then we will be too late.”

It is thought that George and Charlotte’s younger brother Prince Louis will join them at the same school in September after he turns four in April.

As part of William and Kate’s wishes to give them as normal an upbringing as possible, as soon as they walk through the school gates their kids are treated like any other child.

And this means they must do what teachers tell them and follow the school’s most important rule – just like everyone else.

Its website states: “As you would expect of any Thomas’s school, the most important school rule is ‘Be Kind’.”
