Prince William has shared that his son Prince George, 8, gets 'annoyed and confused' when people leave litter on the streets.
- In an interview with BBC Newscast Prince William admitted that George gets frustrated with people who litter.
- The 8-year-old has been litter picking at school, in a bid to learn about the environment.
- In other royal news, Prince William and Kate Middleton pay tribute to MP Sir David Amess.
The interview, posted to their Instagram account, is promoting Sunday's Earthshot Prize ceremony, which will welcome big name guests such as Ed Sheeran and Coldplay.
William, who was speaking to Adam Fleming for BBC's Newscast, also said about climate change, "If we're not careful, we're robbing from our children's future.”

The Duke of Cambridge went on to say that his environmental habits are also rubbing off on his eldest son, George, who has been litter picking as part of his school duties.
"So George at school recently has been doing litter picking", he said.
"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".
He finished by saying, "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?'"

George and his sister both attend the Thomas's Battersea school, in southwest London, which costs £20,000 a year.
The Earthshot Prize is an environmental award, created by the Duke, to help protect and restore nature, clean our air, revive our oceans, build a waste-free world, and fix our climate.
The star-studded awards ceremony will take place tomorrow evening at Alexandra Palace. Presenters Dermot O'Leary and Clara Amfo will be joined by celebrity guests including Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, Shawn Mendes, KSI, and Yemi Alade.
The ceremony, which Kate Middleton will also attend, will be televised from Alexandra Palace and will feature the 15 finalists. The event will finally reveal which five entrants have won the £1M prize money to develop their environmental ideas. This is hoping their concepts, if achieved by 2030, will improve life for generations to come.
