Prince William said his renewed collaboration with natural historian Sir David Attenborough has played a pivotal part in helping him come bed time. The Duke of Cambridge said Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are very big fans of the broadcaster and his documentaries have been an unexpected source of help. Asked about his children’s reaction to his work with Sir David, Prince William said: “They’re very jealous.
“And, actually, last night we started watching one of David’s newest documentaries.
“It’s amazing at bedtime when I can corral the children, just shouting ‘we’re going to watch one of David’s documentaries’ and they come herding in.
“It’s the easiest way to catch my children and get them ready for bedtime.”
Prince William and Sir David joined forces to launch the new Earthshot Prize, an award the pair is hoping to build up to become the “Nobel Prize for environmentalism”.

Prince William said he felt “now it’s my responsibility” to raise awareness about climate change and ensure he leaves the planet “in a better state than we found it,” for his children and grandchildre.
All three Cambridge children have lent a hand to their father as they appeared in a heartwarming video to question Sir David Attenborough about nature.
And Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis last month also had the opportunity to meet with Sir David at their home in Kensington Palace and have a chat with him.
However, the Duke of Cambridge revealed he had been forced to switch off one of Attenborough’s documentaries after Prince George became too sad watching it.

In the video, Princess Charlotte also revealed she has developed a fascination for spiders while Prince Louis made his talking debut, asking Sir David about his favourite animal.
Pronunciation specialist Dr Geoff Lindsay suggested the young princess has picked up her accent from mum Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge while her two brothers have more of an Estuary pronunciation.
The expert said: “The main feature in George’s speech which is vaguely Estuary-ish is his ‘L’ vocalisation.
“This means pronouncing final L rather like ‘w’, so that ‘animal’ becomes more like ‘animaw’.
“However this is very widespread nowadays; you can hear it in the speech of Boris Johnson and George’s father, Prince William.”
