Royal commentators Rachel Bowie and Roberta Fiorito praised Prince William for his dedication to tackling climate change and his conservationist efforts. During their Royally Obsessed podcast, the pair noted that Prince William has said becoming a father changed his outlook on some topics, notably climate change. They added that one of William’s goals is to be able to say to his son Prince George, that he made a difference to climate change before it was too late.
Ms Bowie said: “Prince William wants to be able to tell Prince George ‘this is what I did to stop this when you were little’.
“I think that is the kind of the way we all need to look at it now with climate change.
“We can’t just look back and think we could have done something, we should be doing something now.
“I love that Prince William is taking that on.”

Ms Fiorito agreed and reflected on William’s changing perspective as he gets older.
She said: “Prince William mentioned that his kids gave him this totally new perspective on what it means to be a conservationist.
“He has a new perspective on trying to help save mother Earth.”
The royal commentators also noted that Prince William has matured and that would likely tie into his reasoning for wanting to tackle an issue like climate change.
William and naturalist Sir David Attenborough have joined forces to launch what they hope will become the “Nobel Prize for environmentalism”.
They said the search is on for 50 solutions to the world’s gravest environmental problems by 2030, with a £50million “Earthshot Prize” to be awarded over a decade.
The Prince added: “The shared goals for our generation are clear. Together we must protect and restore nature, clean our air, revive our oceans, build a wastefree world and fix our climate.
“If we do not act in this decade, the damage that we have done will be irreversible and the effects felt not just by future generations but by all of us alive today.”
